Nemanja Ćirić, Business Development Manager, GP Gradjevinar

Satisfied Partners Are Key To Success

Since its founding more than three decades ago, GP Gradjevinar has been, and remains, a company that insists on the high quality of every project phase, respect for agreements with partners, the constant educating of employees and the application of the latest technologies. And all of this in combination has led to it building an enviable reputation

GP Gradjevinar received numerous messages of commendation from German partners for its work constructing the new buildings of the German Embassy and the German School in Belgrade, as well as for the reconstruction of the building of the Goethe Institute, which proves that GP Gradjevinar satisfies Europe’s most stringent standards of quality.

After three decades of operations, GP Gradjevinar is today a recognisable brand not only in Serbia, but also abroad. What forms the basis of your excellent reputation?

The very fact that GP Gradjevinar has existed as a company for more than three decades is one of the factors proving that we’ve become a recognisable brand. From the very outset, one of the most important principles that has been present in our operations is the inclusion of high quality in every part of a project’s implementation.

That is one of the key elements of our brand. Moreover, by respecting all agreements with all our partners, both domestic and foreign, we have gained great trust, which wasn’t easy to maintain during the previous difficult decades. Of course, in order for us to be able to continue providing that high quality, we also pay great attention – apart from quality and respect for deadlines – to the constant educating of our associates, thus enabling us to monitor and apply all new technologies. All of this together helps to rank us among the most serious construction companies operating on the market of the Republic of Serbia, and thus also a recognisable brand.

Your company’s motto is “ Satisfied partners are the key to our success”. Are satisfied partners also the best advertisement and the best recommendation?

We think it is. When we say “partners”, we aren’t only referring to our investors/ clients, but also our long-term suppliers, subcontractors and others who participate together with us on the implementation of all projects. With dedication, expertise, commitment and serious work, the results must be positive and our investors/clients satisfied.

Our investors are very pleased to continue collaborating with us and are happy to recommend us to their partners

This kind of recommendation is very important for us, because our investors are very pleased to continue collaborating with us and are happy to recommend us to their partners who are planning activities in Serbia. In short, works are the best advertisement and recommendation.

Is the fact that you were engaged on the construction of the new buildings of the German Embassy and the German School in Belgrade, as well as the reconstruction of the building of the Goethe Institute, proof that you satisfy even the most stringent European standards of quality?

The constant education and training of all associates in our company enabled us, as a general contractor, to implement even the most demanding projects when it comes to high standards in the field of construction, and to implement them to a high quality in the projects that you listed.

The realisation of these projects was a great and beautiful challenge for us, in which we showed that we can satisfy the most stringent European standards envisaged by these projects, especially when taking into account the specific nature of the construction industry, and of course all with respect for agreed deadlines. As such, there was no lack of either satisfaction or praise among our partners – the German Federal Foreign Office, the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany in Belgrade, the German Federal Ministry of Construction and the German Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Culture.

Our motto also simultaneously describes the history of our company – the brand that we’ve created: “Satisfied partners are the key to our success”.
