We, at General Construction, see training and personal development as imperatives in a world of constant change and innovation. Since 1991, our people have benefitted from our in-house Registered Training Centre to develop their skills and potential further. The facility caters for both theoretical and practical courses, which are delivered by full-time trainers and visiting specialists as well.READ MORE
Assessments and on-site follow-ups ensure the successful application of the right practices. Besides acquiring proficiency in various construction trades, our staff gets the opportunity to align their knowledge to new methodologies and cutting-edge technologies. Policy reviews in critical areas such as Health and Safety also form part of their on-going learning process.
As guardians of our work standards and corporate culture, both our manual and administrative staff undergo an induction course about the importance of their contribution to a stimulating environment, where attitude and behaviour help everyone thrive. This fosters smoother workflow, added efficiency and better interpersonal relationships.
Over and above in-house training, the company open doors for emerging talents among its employees to hone their skills in tertiary institutions, locally and abroad. On-the-job coaching and mentorship unlock the transfer of knowledge between our senior staff and the younger generation.
As a whole, General Construction’s learning and development matrix brings out the best in our people, who are geared to perform according to the best practices in the industry, helping us to fulfill our commitments towards our clients and partners.
The strength and reliability of our Integrated Logistics and Corporate Services give us the capacity and confidence to rise to the increasingly complex challenges in the construction industry.
Our smart technologies and systems, coupled with human expertise in broad spectrum of specialised fields, enable highly efficient working practices across the organization.
The comprehensive in-house capabilities bring every aspect of projects under intensive expert scrutiny, at all stages and much of it, in real time. This safeguards certainty of outcome and timely delivery, within budget.
Besides creating fluid workflows, the innovative, integrated framework generates solutions which simplify our processes and streamline our operations as well. It supports our endeavour to manage resources in a responsible way and to reduce our carbon footprint, while boosting productivity, clients’ satisfaction and not least, the morale of our people.
Every day, innovation is giving us more power and means to manage and deliver with extra value. The capacity to apply leaner processes at different stages of project development and implementation reduces significantly resources and costs, without compromising on quality, functionality and reliability.
Our Engineering and Technical Support Department is staffed with competent and experienced engineers and equipped with latest analytical tools to provide our clients with smart alternative solutions with respect to infrastructure, structures, building materials and construction techniques. Such alternatives create more with less, and the projects are designed for extended life cycles.
Innovation endows our I.S department with sophisticated tools and systems to increase efficiencies, enabling the smart coordination of vital aspects of our operations. As the central network that bridges all our core departments including finance, logistics, administration, human resources and production, it optimizes conditions for minimal lead-time and faster operations.
In return, projects are delivered on time, within budget and always with the General Construction quality standards.
