A visit of the Serbian Government’s delegation and groundbreaking ceremony for the “Grundfos” facility.
Groundbreaking ceremony of a new business and production complex in Inđija, belonging to the company Grundfos (18,000m2), has been laid.
Ana Brnabic, the Prime Minister of Serbia, attended the groundbreaking ceremony for the new production plant. This official ceremony was also attended by the Serbian Minister of Economy Anđelka Atanasković, Ambassador of Denmark Susanne Shine, President of the Municipality of Inđija Vladimir Gak, Grundfos Vice President of supply chain management Michele Sterlecchini, the factory’s Director Veljko Todorovic, and the CEO of the Konstruktor Group Ognjen Kisin.
The Prime Minister first visited the existing production plant, built in 2012.
In addition, a new enhanced wastewater treatment plant, the Grundfos BioBooster, was opened two years ago.
In 2021, the construction of the third facility commences, and these works will be finished in May 2022, and after completion the complex will receive “LEED GOLD” certification.
All of the above-mentioned facilities, built for the renowned Danish investor “Grundfos”, were constructed by the Konstruktor Group, the general contractor, as a “turnkey” project.
As we have already mentioned in one of our earlier notifications, we point out that we are particularly pleased with the fact that we will once again act as the general contractor for a company with internationally recognizable ecological awareness, and thereby partake in ecological changes at the local as well as the global level.
It has been agreed to construct the third phase of the industrial complex “Minth” in Loznica
As a “turnkey” and “design and build” project, it has been agreed to carry out third-phase construction works on the industrial complex “Minth Automotive Europe” in Loznica (size: 47,000 m2).
This phase will be realized in a period of 12 months by the Konstruktor Group, the general contractor, whereas the said period of time includes designing, obtaining permits, and constructing facilities, as was the case with the previous phases.
The facilities are meant for business and production, and they consist of technical block 1 and technical block 3, with accompanying small ancillary buildings: a waste storage facility, a facility for the storage of flammable liquids, and a pumping station.
Konstruktor expresses satisfaction for continuous cooperation with the renowned Investor from China, and we wish the successful and hard-working team of the Konstruktor Group a happy continuation of works on the construction site in Loznica.
Final works on the facility “Magna” and a delegation visit to Aleksinac
The construction of the factory “Magna” in Aleksinac (8,500 m2) is almost finished, and it has been carried out as a „design and build“ and „turnkey“ project by the Konstruktor, the general contractor.
“Magna Seating” is part of the global group Magna, and it deals with the textile production of automotive upholstery.
Also, as part of her 3-day tour of the Nisava District, the Serbian Prime Minister Ana Brnabić, while in Ražanj and Aleksinac, paid a visit to the new factory of the Canadian investor “Magna”.
As reported by the Government, she went on this tour in order to talk with the citizens, businessmen and the representatives of the local self-government and thus get an insight into what has been done so far, which projects are ongoing, which ones are expected to commence, and what other things need to be done in the interest of the citizens and the economy.
New cooperation with the company “Grundfos” – industrial complex (18,000 m2)
We began our cooperation with the Danish investor “Grundfos” in 2012 when we constructed their first industrial complex in Indjija with a size of 27,000 m2, which was also that year’s biggest greenfield investment in Serbia.
In 2018, the company Grundfos continues to move boundaries in energy efficiency and water conservation and re-establishes cooperation with the Konstruktor Group in relation to the construction of a waste water treatment plant – Grundfos Biobooster (WWTP).
In 2021, our successful, continuous cooperation moves on and so we begin the construction of a new business and warehouse complex in Indjija (18,000 m2) as a “design and build”, “turnkey” project.
The designing and construction of this project will be in accordance with the highest technical and technological requirements of the Investor, with the application of state-of-the-art materials, equipment and systems, and also in accordance with “LEED GOLD” certification.
We must say that we are particularly pleased with the fact that once more we will act as the general contractor for a company with globally recognizable ecological awareness, and thereby be part of ecological changes at both the local and global level.
Thank you for your trust,

Our experienced employees describe an overall work atmosphere in Konstruktor
The following are the impressions of the experienced team leaders employed in Konstruktor, who have built hundreds of facilities in Serbia and the Balkan region together with the rest of the team.
They have been constructing your vision, as well as their own, in the last 5, 10, 15 or more years ...
“I have been working in Konstruktor for over five years, cooperating with exceptional engineers and co-workers, participating in various projects.
We have jointly established an engineering team, specialized in the “design&build” construction model, which represents the basis of our company’s success.
Projects that we design and build reflect most appropriately our knowledge and our aspirations.”
“Company Konstruktor supports young engineers in the beginning of their careers, providing them with permanent professional training and unlimited transfer of knowledge and skills.
This is illustrated by my experience since the job in Konstruktor was my first employment after graduation. Very shortly, working with an excellent team of colleagues and cooperating on challenging and stimulating projects, I was first promoted from an architectural designer-trainee to the position of a project designer, then to the position of a project manager. I have been conducting and managing projects, continuously improving my knowledge. The fact that most appeals to me is the opportunity to simultaneously design a building and follow its construction, and to devise the most appropriate solutions for each detail through the interaction on the construction site.”
“My working experience in Konstruktor? Let’s put it this way: unparalleled life experience, unique opportunity to cooperate and be on a par with the greatest professionals in this field!
An average working day? Demanding and exhausting, but in the end, nothing can match the feeling of joy when the structure has been completed respecting the deadline, construction quality and budget.
Tomorrow’s plan? I’ve heard there’s a new project on the way... :)“
“During my eight-year-long employment in Konstruktor, I have improved my professional skills significantly owing to the team work and cooperation with colleagues – construction designers of various professions.
One of the factors crucial for construction design is building of a team.
The importance of the team selection is reflected not only in the expertise and knowledge that the team members can offer, but also in the creation of a powerful sense of sharing the common goal and common priorities. The success of a project depends largely on a good team spirit and the best results can be achieved only by means of developing the team work skills.”
“Upon my return from Russia, I was employed in Konstruktor as a construction manager assistant / installation manager, engaged in the steel installation within the project of revitalization and building of new plant facilities in RTB Bor. The successful completion of this project led to the establishment of the department for Project Management. I personally consider this department our great accomplishment!
I would emphasize the following representative construction projects: five Stop Shop retail parks, part of Aviv Park in Zrenjanin, dairy plan Milkraft in Montenegro, factory CG foods in Ruma, factory Indomie in Inđija and the current project Xingyu in Niš, confirmed to be the project of great importance for the whole of Serbia.
We have gone a long way in Konstruktor, we have worked hard, and the thoughts about our earlier accomplishments have yielded immeasurable satisfaction!”
“I regard Konstruktor Group as an extraordinary company in the national construction business, prepared to realize every project regardless of the deadlines and project complexity. Therefore, our team is comprised of primarily brave people who are educated, well-qualified, honest and hard-working”.
Lead Mechanical Installation Designer
“The employees feel secure and cared for when they work in the company that respects business rules and fulfills its financial obligations even in the time of economic upheavals. Our only responsibility is to do the job well :) and not worry about anything else. And we do appreciate that.
Best regards from the Finance Department, I am presently busy calculating salaries, I can’t write any more though I’d like to:)“
“I am deeply honoured to be part of the Konstruktor Group team, and I find great delight in representing the team that executes all tasks without encountering any obstacles.”
“I started working in Konstruktor in 2006. At that time, a small family company had a clear vision of its future business achievements and the manner in which to accomplish them. Today, 14 years later, Konstruktor is a distinguished brand and I am proud to be part of its creation, of its present and future. Creating and completing new projects, ideas and visions together with the rest of the team in Konstruktor has become my greatest everyday pleasure!”
“When I was still a student of civil engineering, I completed my obligatory one-month internship in Konstruktor .
Today, 7 years later, I am employed in Konstruktor. My responsibilities include contracting projects that will provide enough work for my colleagues and keep them busy:)
I often marvel at how time has passed so quickly and how this former intern has been offered an opportunity to do this highly esteemed job.
And then, I realize that it has been just one exciting ride that I would like to enjoy during many years to come.
I eagerly await new challenges and new professional and life experiences in the future.
I find great delight in sharing them with these exceptional people that work with me.
The slogan of Konstruktor is “We construct your vision”. It appears it has constructed mine, as well.”
Head of Offers Department
“Construction sites emanate adrenaline and require great responsibility; yet, the more complex the task, the greater the satisfaction, both personal and collective. It is pure delight to be part of the Konstruktor team, to complete challenging projects and respect short deadlines, to move boundaries of success further each year. It is my great honour to work as the construction manager and participate in significant projects granted to Konstruktor.
Best regards from our team from Loznica, Minth 2 is waiting :)!“
“I have been employed as the construction designer in Konstruktor for 12 years. During that time, I have been engaged in more than 70 projects of diverse complexity, completed with the application of modern technologies and numerous construction systems.
I would particularly emphasize the projects such as Pasarela located between Kalemegdan and the promenade along the Sava, the steel structure in the dome of the Temple of Saint Sava, the reconstruction of the Merriot hotel and the logistics centre KLP, each of the two representing true engineering challenges.
The most significant advantage of our company is definitely its own plant for the production of steel structures, so that, besides designing, we can check each detail of our constructions through the production process, which results in high-quality end products.”
Lead Designer of Structures
“Being a construction designer in Konstruktor, I most value the fact that the projects are so diverse that every new project is a true inspiration.
Each of these projects was completed using different construction systems and various designing ideas, which has only contributed to my professional advancement and which is of great importance for every engineer.”
Lead Designer of Structures
In my opinion, nothing can hinder the progress we are making in Konstruktor!
I am the person who has learned to swim both in deep and in shallow water, and yet to always keep my head high above water, to join the traditional way of doing business and thinking with the visionary one, essential for any prosperity in life, but always retaining positive spirit and optimism as a guarantee that there are many more individuals similar to me! It is in this company that I have found this kind of people.
I am proud that we have endured for so many years. We have inspired and stimulated the most positive traits in one another, which has created a special breed of true fighters who fight for the inherent good in human beings. Consequently, it has initiated the only possible and correct way of thinking: each problem will be solved if approached with joint efforts, which is actually our common task.
My dear colleagues, I love you all, be the way you have always been:-*
