Karst Ltd. as a specialist geotechnical contractor has been founded in June of 1995. Name “Karst“ has its roots in German geological terminology; meaning “karst” as a phenomenon caused by water impact against carbonate/CO₃ rocks. Such processes are known as “karstification”. Typical forms of karstification are: caverns, karst fields (sinkholes and estaveles), lost rivers, caves etc.
Main characteristic of karst formations is heterogeneous structure. In overall Croatian geology, some 2/3 of territory is built mostly of limestone or other carbonate rocks (dolomites); and although karstic formations build a significant part of Croatia; company Karst Ltd. is executing geotechnical works in all kind of rock/soil materials; within and/or outside of the Country.
Following more than two decades of activities in construction business, today; Karst Company is one of the leading contractor within Croatia in very particular area of civil engineering – specialist geotechnical works. We are well equipped with all necessary “state-of-art” machineries/technologies, and having some 40 experienced specialists in our permanent personnel team.
