Conference “The World in 2020”

The CEO of Konstruktor Group, Mr. Ognjen Kisin, participated in the conference “The World in 2020”, organized by  Color Media Communications, and recognizable as the event that closes the ongoing year with conclusions about the political, business, and social environment in Serbia, and raises questions of significance in the coming year.
The topics that Mr. Kisin talked about are certainly useful in the civil engineering sector, such as the problems that the civil engineering industry is faced with, and also progress in this kind of industry.
Lack of workforce, a large number of workers hired from abroad, and diminishing numbers of qualified native young workers are all current topics which pose a specific kind of problem for the civil engineering industry in Serbia.
According to Mr. Kisin, the entire situation should be seen as a challenge, for at the same time there are grounds for optimism – namely, the increasing scope of work in this industry and better commercial terms for all workers. If companies invest sufficiently in their human resources, they will obtain an appropriate inflow of workforce and the deficiency of the labor force will be reduced.
In addition, a large number of foreign investments has not only increased the scope of work but also helped to alter standards in civil engineering, so that Mr. Kisin also touched upon energy efficiency, the construction of buildings in accordance with the highest FM Global standards of quality, LEED standards, the standards of green building, and in general the raising of awareness in terms of the importance of environmental protection...
Such standards have been implemented in civil engineering industry, which also presents a highly favorable trend.

The fifth contract concluded between companies Miškone Plastik and Konstruktor

For one of the dearest partners with which Konstruktor company had the pleasure to cooperate for years, a fifth contract for a warehouse facility was signed on the design-and-build, turnkey basis.

The warehouse facility includes a hall and an outdoor arrangement at a location in Stara Pazova, where the previous facilities were also built by Konstruktor company, as the general contractor, and which are at the same time one of the first facilities on which the system of spatial constructions designed by professor Srđan Kisin was implemented.

By way of an equal height of the main and secondary lattice girders connected by upper and lower belts, a spatial structure of a high load capacity is achieved in relation to the amount of the material used for the construction of the object.

The compatibility of this system with local regulations for wind is especially emphasized, wherein this system solves the problem of lower bit truss girders deflection due to wind sub pressure. Aldo, the roof and façade sandwich panels are treated within the STRESSED SKIN DESIGN in accordance with EUROCODE regulations. This means the incorporation of stiffness of façade and roof clad into the space model of the facility which contributes to the simplification of the skeleton. The application of these two approaches in designing prefabricated facilities has enabled Kontruktor to stand out in the marked in regards to the optimization of facilities’ structure.

On this project, Konstruktor is engaged as a general contractor, according to the "turnkey" contract, for design and build of all architectural-construction works, thermotechnical, hydrotechnical and electrical installations, interior finishing works, as well as all landscaping and traffic works of the complex.
