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 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.”

“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.”

Jelena Petronić

“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.”

Boris Jovanović

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:-*

The evolution of Konstruktor company from 2004 until the present day. The first jobs, the first obstacles and major successes… An interview dedicated to budding entrepreneurs with the will, knowledge, and vision!

“We got our first job at a construction fair in 2004, where we rented a small stand. And when you do one good job, you get two or three new ones, and that starts spreading like a forest fire. With a constant raising of the bar and facing ever more serious challenges, a company matures and grows. Any other way leads to stagnation.
The fledgling company had a small team of engineers and provided consulting services. Back then, as well as today, when it has hundreds of employees, the whole operation of the company is based on knowledge. Without the essential knowledge, no idea or business venture can ever be successful…”

In the interview for the “I, Entrepreneur” series, Mr. Ognjen Kisin, the Executive Director of the Konstruktor Group, spoke about his entrepreneurial beginnings in 2004, the inevitable obstacles, pushing the boundaries, and tackling ever bigger and more demanding jobs.

We recommend this video to budding entrepreneurs who have the will, knowledge, and vision!
