Krebs und Kiefer is currently involved in several construction supervision projects in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia and Macedonia. The contractual basis for these projects, mainly road construction projects, is mostly the FIDIC Conditions of Contract which are prescribed by the banks (including EBRD, EIB, WB, KfW) for internationally financed projects.
Here, the construction supervisor or Engineer takes on a central role and acts as both project manager and construction supervisor for the client. Among other duties, the Engineer is responsible for monitoring the progress of construction, checking invoices and formally accepting the construction services. Management of supplementary claims and any changes to the works as well as arbitration of any disputes between the parties (Employer und Contractor) also form part of this role, as do other traditional construction supervision activities.
