Forewords from the Managing Director


In a changing world, constantly striving toward improvement, infrastructural development and better connectivity among the people, we have allocated an area where we feel we can contribute and add value in pursuit of this global mission. Since its founding, powered by a talented, passionate and experienced team of experts, PPG has swiftly got involved in some of the most complex and demanding projects of its kind in the infrastructure sector.

Through the years, we have established ourselves as a highly reliable and competent partner to our clients who kept trusting us with a number of equally demanding projects and most challenging assignments. Today we can say that PPG has been involved in the vast majority of motorway/road construction projects on the domestic market, including the currently longest tunnels and bridges in BiH and has significantly expanded its scope of activities and areas of expertise, beyond the original geotechnics consulting and works supervision focus.

With such internal growth of competences PPG has opened new markets and has been awarded with projects in Montenegro, Moldova, Serbia and Turkey. Our aim is to retain our passion and service excellence in the field of Engineering consultancy and to too further expand our knowledge and geographies we are working in.

Looking forward to continuing doing what we love, for the benefit of communities we work and live in…
