The Belgrade-based construction company has marked its seventieth anniversary
What links the hydropower plants at Đerdap and Mali Zvornik, Belgrade’s University Library, and the Royal Villa on Mt Oplenac, with the Constantine Palace in St Petersburg, Russia, the Cairo Marriott, and army bases in the Iraqi capital Baghdad? All of these structures, so important to the economies, cultures, and histories of their countries, have at one time or another been worked on by the engineers and workmen of Belgrade-based Jadran.
Jadran, one of Serbia’s oldest construction companies, with more than 16,000 completed projects in its portfolio, has celebrated a major milestone – its 70th anniversary.
Company was founded on 29th of June 1950 as part of the City of Belgrade Municipal Construction Company, made famous under its Serbian-language acronym Komgrap, Jadran later split to become an independent painting and decoration firm. Seven decades later, apart from finishing works and corrosion protection, the cornerstones of its worldwide reputation, Jadran provides general construction services and specialises in a wide range of building and installation works.
Jadran is today one of the rare companies operating in the Serbian market that offers full construction service.
