In February 2013, SGS was awarded a contract to provide construction supervision services to Raiffeisenbank Beograd, the Serbian branch of Raiffeisen Banking Group's Austria-based Raiffeisen Zentralbank Österreich AG.

Raiffeisen Bank Belgrade awarded SGS this contract because of the company's solid reputation and respected references within the banking sector. SGS services are scheduled to begin in March and continue for two years.

The Belgrade construction project is to build an 18,238.48 m2 structure consisting of a basement, ground floor, six main stories (A, A1, B, B1, C, C1) and an attic. The complex will include 108 apartments with a 9,499.11 m2 net sellable area, 12 retail outlets with an 832.14 m2 net sellable area and 143 garage units. The newly built facility will be erected on cad. SGS expert supervisors will ensure that the project remains on time and on budget and meets all relevant regulations and quality standards.

SGS Supervisors On-Site in Serbia

Highly-skilled SGS specialists will provide professional construction supervision, specifically tailored to safeguard the successful completion of the Raiffeisen project. SGS personnel with extensive experience will effectively control and supervise every aspect of the Belgrade construction.

SGS independent third-party supervision services will provide Raiffeisen an experienced team of experts, placed on-site to effectively implement and execute the project plan according to the international and national project management guidelines. Continuous SGS specialist supervision will keep the construction project on schedule, reduce technical risks and prevent construction errors.

A team of SGS experts will ensure that all work is in accordance with the specified technical documentation and the construction permit as well as produce and submit correct and complete declarations, documents and certificates.
