Urban development in the core of our business

Our business is based on urban development and the life cycle of the built environment and consists of housing, business premises, infrastructure and partnership properties.

We create more sustainable, functional and attractive cities and living environments. We develop and build apartments, business premises and entire areas. We also specialise in demanding infrastructure construction. We own properties together with our partners, which supports the implementation of our significant development projects. We also provide our customers with services that increase the value of properties.
