- West Construction has a huge experience in performing execution drawings in concrete (KG) and steel structure (KM) taking into account specific and high requirements of each client as L'OREAL, KRAFT, ROCA and other.
- All our executive design passed successfully the expertise in several regions.
- To guarantee design quality West Construction strictly follows the procedure below:
- within 2-3 weeks we present preliminary design according to the client’s requirement specifying loads, free height, main dimensions of structure;
- the client validates it;
- we perform structural drawings;
- before starting works (foundations) we order an independent audit to verify the project.
Here below few examples of design performed by West Construction.
Design stage. Preliminary project drawings.

Design stage. Building models.
The general project organization is the following:
- All project design, material tender and orders are performed in Moscow head office.
- Site management is in charge of verifying:
- Quality of materials delivered
- Quality of execution
- Respect of time schedule
- General site coordination
Quality, safety, environment
West Construction received international certificates of systems of quality (ISO 9001), safety regulations (OHSAS 18001) and ecological policy (ISO 14001).
General procedure to reach high quality result is the following:
- Regarding main materials:
- All suppliers of West Construction are audited.
- Our requirement is that their production meets international standard. Consequently, all main materials orders (roofing, facades, slab coating...) have a minimal guarantee of 5years.
- Steel and concrete prefab suppliers are checked by West Construction engineer and by independent expert who checks mainly quality of:
- anticorrosive coating
- concrete reinforcement
Factory visit reports allow to control production progress and quality. Those reports are sent to our client if requested. The client himself is invited to the factory visit.
Regular factory visits allow us to control quality during the production process
Regarding site execution:
- To guarantee good execution on each project:
- the main site engineer is involved in the design stage and the production plan (PPR)
- this engineer is full time present on site to verify the good execution and the conformity of the KG and KM drawings.
The site manager has under his supervision:
- an engineer preparing acts and photos of hidden task
- several specialized supervisors for each task as platform and sub base compacting, reinforcement, casting of the concrete, steel structure installation, etc...
- Each important step (foundations, slab) during execution is checked by our design office on site.
Safety is a priority for West Construction.
- Design is performed in order to minimize manpower and handlings on site.
- Consequently, during site execution most of the elements are prefab and installed with mechanism according to internal safety procedure (secured perimeter, checking of the mechanisms, safety instructions and education given to the workers...).
All monolith parts are casted with formwork having all safety equipment as ladders, platform....
All facade work is performed with hydraulic platform

- A safety engineer is full time on site to verify respect of safety rules.
- Each supervisor received safety education
- Each employee of West Construction has a contract including:
- requirement regarding safety
- special clauses specifying penalties and possible dismissal in case of non respect of internal instructions.
