The story of Talu Construction was explained by Mr. Gönül Talu as follows:
I will try to explain how Talu Construction was created:
I was graduated from Istanbul Technical University, Faculty of Construction, Department of Civil Engineering as Civil Engineer (M.Sc) in 1961. I had worked as chief of various construction sites in the Highways Authority, had experience in the private sector and built structures as a private contractor until 1969. I had worked as a contractor and completed projects for the Highways Authority. In 1969, I started to work at Doğuş Construction for 50 years uninterruptedly. I served as Project Manager and General Manager in the first 15 years of such 50 years, and as Chairman of Board of Directors and Executive Director in the last 35 years.
I have managed some 150 projects with total value more than 30 Billion USD inland and abroad. Particularly, I have completed and timely delivered projects in all lines of infrastructure construction such as dams, highways, railways, metros, viaducts, bridges, airports, maritime constructions and various environmental projects in Turkey and many other countries such as Yemen, Libya, Saudi Arabia, Kazakhstan, Ukraine, Bulgaria, Morocco, Qatar and India.
I founded Talu Construction to operate in the field of infrastructure construction thanks to my 60 year experience in the sector. The biggest asset of Talu Construction is its staff that is highly experienced in construction. Managers, engineers and foremen that have been trained over the course of time are our biggest strength.
Good Luck to All of Us‘
