KCAP 2013

KCAP wishes everyone a successful, positive and healthy 2013!

2012 has not been an easy year. But we are happy to have ended it well with new projects, several buildings under construction and awards for our work.

2013 will certainly be as well a challenging year. We start it with new energy and positive prospects. It will be a year in which creativity, quality and entrepreneurship stronger than ever will play a role. We approach this challenge with confidence.

We would like to thank all of you for your engagement, trust and fruitful collaboration in the last year and are looking forward to working with you in 2013.
