EDA welcomes PEDMEDEPublished 21/4, 2020 at 10:35
The European Demolition Association has welcomed PEDMEDE as its latest member.
The Panhellenic Association of Engineers Contractors of Public Works (PEDMEDE) was established in 1935 representing the construction sector in Greece, specifically companies dealing with public works construction. Its members consist of individuals from public works contractors as well as technical companies from grade A1 up to grade 7 (the upper grade), according to the Greek Ministry of Infrastructure & Transport classification.
PEDMEDE is located in Athens and operates 15 regional departments covering all Greek regions, as well as a separate section of construction companies. It is the sole Greek contractors association representing the country at a European level. In particular, it is a statutory member of FIEC (European Construction Industry Federation) and EIC (European International Contractors), holding seats in steering committees of both entities.
At the core of its scope, PEDMEDE aims to ensure and promote its members’ interests and welfare at all levels. Within this scope, it operates in close cooperation with public authorities, government representatives and key stakeholders representing the construction sector. To this end, it helps shape the national legislative framework, helping to form construction polices and initiatives and having a leading role in social dialogue. Additionally, PEDMEDE has enhanced its managerial capacity and is actively involved in EU funded projects (namely in the framework of Erasmus+, Horizon etc.) related to its specific areas of specialisation.
One its endeavours, is to create a ‘National Producer Responsibility Scheme’ for the collection and treatment of construction and demolition waste.
