Construction

Our clients across the region rely on us for assistance with real estate development processes at every step along the way – starting with investigating real estate, including land to be developed or redeveloped, then following with zoning and planning matters, design and construction contracts, construction management and supervision, right up to the completion of construction, as well as commissioning and questions of post-construction warranty. We regularly advise various industries on expanding their existing facilities, whether these are production plants, power plants, logistics facilities or other kinds of facilities. We are instrumental at any stage of the process, and we “speak the language of development”. Our experts attend to the business’s interests in all aspects of development, whether environmental matters, an issue of contention with a local authority or anything else.

We know what matters to each participant in the development and maintenance cycle, including design and construction supervision authorities. Some of our experts come from governmental organisations which control or supervise the real estate development process in our countries, so we really know all the perspectives inside out.
