Our pillars of operation
TIME VS QUALITY VS COST
We highly optimize all processes to achieve best quality in best time with best cost combination.
We are fully committed to managing safety policy throughout company projects such as to provide the highest level of protection to the environment and to safeguard the health and safety of our employees.
Our managerial team aims to support goal of “Zero Accidents” by disseminated and provide the guiding principles necessary to ensure that high standards are achieved at all company sites. We ensure that our selected employees are designated at all sites of work in order to monitor and implement the health and safety requirements.
Our Safety expectations are communicated to each employee at the new-hire orientation, training sessions and during regular safety meetings.
Safety is a responsibility shared by every GMC employee, meaning everyone is expected to follow the first rule of never walking past unsafe act or condition. These efforts are not only appreciated by our team, but also by our clients who recognize that our safety program protects their employees and facilities as well.
We guarantee and implement health and safety requirements as per local and international standards and regulation, investigate all incidents, near misses and unsafe acts to identify the root cause and take action to prevent recurrence.
At all time, a safe and clean working environment is always provided.
Our company acts with uncompromising integrity, as individuals and as an organization.
The increase in the moral and ethical responsibilities of companies operating within the construction industry have become an essential aspect in creating an internationally respected brand while many construction companies have only recently began developing systems and strategies in order to achieve better ethical codes and moral integrity, that have been naturally present within GMC from the very beginning.
We, at GMC, define professionalism as setting aside personal values, feelings, and benefits in order to fulfill the obligations inhered in professional roles. Ethical behavior, in construction context, is determined by the level of trustworthiness and integrity with which organizations and individuals perform their business.
We ensure that construction professionals do not take advantage over the client due to the knowledge differential.
For example, engineers, architects, project managers, surveyors and contractors, have the fundamental right of professional conscience.
" We work with honesty and equity at the heart of everything we do."
We, at GMC, conduct operations research to determine the ideal number of tasks an organization’s workers can take on. Also, we determine the highest number of tasks workers can undertake while still working effectively.
Our workers are always involved in the decision making process. We discuss with them which services are the most in demand and which would be the most valuable in their communities.
We conduct time-use studies to understand how community health workers use their time to carry out their assigned duties, as well as any obstacles they encounter. In addition, improving the supervisory system to provide recognition and feedback, help solve problems and link workers to the formal health sector.
It is a term given to concrete that has extra steps taken in the mixing design-process and placement to insure a sustainable structure and a long life cycle with the lowest maintenance surface that insures energy saving, CO2 emissions, water-waste.
To us, the word “Green” is not just limited to color, but rather it indicates environmental sustainability and eco-friendliness of the used substances and materials.
To enable this, new technology is developed. This new technology is made from a combination of an inorganic polymer and 25 to 100% industrial waste.
The global average of those expecting to do more than 60% of their projects green by the end of 2018 are more than doubles over current levels, from 18% to 37%.
Construction professionals, for example, engineers, architects, project managers, surveyors and contractors, have the fundamental right of professional conscience.

The concrete used in GMC is made from eco- friendly concrete wastes that is known as “Green Concrete"
In general, green concrete reduces carbon dioxide emission, saves energy and majorly consists of non biodegradable wastes of industries such as fly-ash, rice husk-ash, GGBS and ferro-chrome ash. Green concrete reduces concrete industry’s CO2 emision by 30% and avoids environmental pollution while maintaining sustainable development.
In addition to the environmental goals there are a number of technical advantages for using green concrete such as: the compressive strength of it.
Significantly increases with passage of time, the low drying shrinkage and low creep of green concrete offers long term durability that concrete has excellent resistance to chemical attack and is also a good thermal and fire resistant, Moreover, having better workability than conventional concrete as it requires less maintenance and repairs.
To sum up, there is no such major noticeable disadvantage for the usage of green concrete.
Effective time management is essential to successfully and efficiently meet budget and programme targets, as well as achieve profitability. During the planning stage, all work activities are properly understood, and planned in details to optimize the allocation of resources and reduce the potential for ‘unknowns’.
Project managers have a great responsibility to keep the project success under time of project completion. We believe that knowledge, commitment, cooperation are the main criteria as an overall to manage the project into a smooth process during project execution until completion.
It can be concluded that, the strength between project manager and team members in these main criteria while conducting the project towards good time performance is highly needed. Each stage of the project needs to be broken into smaller steps. Another way to increase efficiency is sequencing tasks: listing each minute detail that needs to be done and putting them in order. Estimates are made of how long each activity will take.
This is critical to the setting of milestones and deadlines, for allocation of resources and for determining the pricing of contracts and cash flow requirements. Our dedication to operating in a streamlined and efficient manner heavily relies on our ability to design and abide by an accurate time schedule that takes into account all aspects relevant to project.
" We are confident in our capabilities to achieve a success that resounds internationally and take pride in never passing a delivery date."
Fast-track scheduling is not a new approach to project delivery. It has been used successfully for many years in industrial and commercial constructions.
The apparent reason for this wider application stems from the current cost escalation within the construction industry which has caused the fixed construction budgets of such groups to decrease in purchasing power over the time it takes to complete a project. Since the time period on many hospital projects from decision to construction until occupancy has been 6 years or longer.
As a result, we at GMC, agree that the time connected with project delivery can be reduced. A shorter delivery time allows medical care to be delivered to a community earlier, reduces the chance of hospital obsolescence before occupancy because of the rapid changes which take place in the medical field, and avoids increased project cost due to the escalation in costs experienced in the construction industry.
Although the length of time to do any activity may not be shortened, it is generally agreed within the construction industry that overlapping phases, if properly managed, will result in substantial time reduction over the sequential path followed under the conventional approach.
Overall time is reduced by starting and completing construction sooner. The reduction in time will differ from project to project.
The complexities of individual projects, the availability of financing, the size and type of facility, the weather during construction, and the ability to meet project schedules all have a bearing on total project time for the individual facility.
Construction of post-tensioned slabs on grade is very similar to using reinforcing steel, except for the tensioning step. Cables are arranged as indicated by the engineer and chaired to run through the center of the slab.
For residential construction, tendons at 48 inches on center are common. A residential post-tensioned concrete slab will typically be 8 inches thick and use 3000 psi concrete. Once the concrete has gained strength to 2000 psi, typically within the 3 to 10 days recommended by PTI, the tendons are stressed.
Larger structural concrete members may also be post-tensioned, especially in bridges and floors and beams in parking structures. The process is very similar to that used for slabs, except on a bigger scale.
One interesting difference is that the tendons will often be “draped” so that they are low at the midpoint of a beam and high at the supports this places the steel at the point of highest tension where it can keep the concrete held together tightly.
With structural members the duct is often grouted full following stressing to bond the strand to the concrete along its entire length these are called bonded tendons.
Decorative Post-Tensioned Concrete
Since PT is simply reinforcement, there really aren’t any specific decorative applications related to post tensioning. The advantages of PT as noted in the opening page are the lack of cracking (or at least very narrow cracks) and the ability to span farther.
PT slabs on ground can be placed and stamped just like with any other concrete slab. Surfaces can be stained or overlaid. The only concern is to always remember not to cut or drill into post-tensioned concrete slabs, since once a tendon has been cut, it is very difficult to repair.
