The last in a series of contracts was concluded between the Croatian IGH Institute and Hrvatske ceste (Croatian roads), and it concerns the supervision of the construction of 4.5 kilometres of the eastern bypass of the town of Novi Marof.

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 3rd of August, 2020, in the past month or so, the Croatian IGH Institute has contracted slightly more than 52 million kuna in new contracts for the supervision and design of infrastructure in Croatia and neighbouring Bosnia and Herzegovina. The latest in a series of contracts was concluded with Croatian roads/Hrvatske ceste, and it concerns the supervision of the construction of 4.5 kilometres of the eastern bypass of the town of Novi Marof. The value of that contract stands at 4,328,574.00 kuna (excluding VAT), and the Croatian IGH Institute, together with the company Eptisa Adria d.o.o, Zagreb, will supervise the construction of this very important road over the next 26 months.

Its construction will completely relieve the centre of Novi Marof from transit freight traffic that has been passing through the city centre, and will improve the quality of life of residents, while the opening of new economic zones also being part of the wider plan.

Prior to the conclusion of this contract, the Croatian IGH Institute contracted three additional projects with Croatian roads/Hrvatske ceste to supervise the construction and reconstruction of three roads worth 12.3 million kuna, and a contract with Autocesta (Motorway) Rijeka-Zagreb to supervise the rehabilitation of the Krk bridge worth just over 1 million kuna, about which we previously wrote.

Additionally, as a leading member of the community of bidders, JP Autoceste Federacije BiH d.o.o. selected the company for the development of the preliminary and main project of the highway Mostar-Široki Brijeg-border of the Republic of Croatia, and the Polog-border of the Republic of Croatia section (40.5 kikometres) with an approximate value of 29.9 million kuna.

Finally, the seventh major project for which the Croatian IGH Institute has recently been selected concerns the supervision of works on the reconstruction of the Zagreb West Station – Savski Marof railway worth 5.3 million kuna signed with HŽ Infrastruktura, and which is largely financed by a World Bank loan for reconstruction and development (IBRD). This is a project related to the 17.8-kilometre-long section of the two-track railway line located on the RH1 corridor, which is extremely important for international freight and urban-suburban transport, with an average of about 160 trains using it a day.

The IGH Insitute currently has around a thousand active contracts for the full range of services it offers, primarily in construction, making it a leading engineering company in the construction sector. On top of all of the above, during 2019 and this year, IGH has hired more than 100 new colleagues, which has exceeded the number of 500 employees, and in the coming period it plans to hire even more manpower.
