The Poza-Honda Dam in Ecuador was built to supply an entire province with drinking water. This dam was built between April 1969 and May 1971 with Trapp in charge of management.
The Tekirova Beach Hotel in Turkey, described in more detail below, as well as construction of a cement factory in Saudi-Arabia are mentioned here as examples of successful project management.
After successfully extending a cement factory in Meftah (Algeria), Trapp received the order for site supervision of the cement factory at Hofuf in Saudi Arabia. The same applied as in Algeria, namely of extending an existing facility with another furnace line. The contract covered site supervision and control of the entire construction work as well as quantity surveying services. The project was accomplished as per deadline in 14 months.
Public services is increasingly gaining in significance on the international building market where Trapp have been represented since the twenties, particularly in executing projects involving infrastructure and industrial facilities. The local building industry abroad has been developing further, but private and public clients and investors, plant and machinery manufacturers as well as engineering companies are relying increasingly on services in the construction sphere. Well-experienced building contractors who have worked in business abroad for years -such as Trapp - support building projects through rational project management. With qualified staff with ample experience abroad as well as computer-assisted procedures, Trapp guarantee proper, expert and prompt project execution.
In this manner the client's own coordination outlay for planning, procurement and construction execution is reduced to an economically reasonable amount. Over and above this, integrated top quality management enables maximum quality requirements to be safeguarded.
Professional project management contributes to increasing efficiency, reducing risks and cutting down on costs. The following work and services were taken care of by Trapp:
- financial management
- design and engineering
- central project control
- assignment of management and construction supervision at the site
- selection and procurement of material and machinery.

- Converting the idea for the project from Hotelgesellschaft IFA into planning and bidding documents
- Invitation to tender for the hotel
- Awarding the construction work
- Planning of execution
