As we have sites stretching from Salgesch to Goms, we are able to guarantee short transport routes.
Building materials have to deliver what they promise – this is just as true for special civil engineering as it is for building construction. That is why the Volken Group's internal building materials laboratory in Gamsen puts many building materials through their paces before they are used. "We use scientific methods to, for example, show whether concrete meets the ever higher demands. We determine whether it meets all standards and what can be improved. Whereas concrete in ancient Roman times consisted of water, stones and cement, today it contains much more, such as additives and admixtures," says Tobias Zeiter, who is in charge of internal quality assurance at the company and helps to test selected building materials to see whether they meet the buildings' requirements.
