We create connections

Roads, bridges, tunnels and airports connect people and places.
We make sure those connections are here to last.

All our companies are privately owned.
We are independent and impartial.

We believe the biggest challenge our clients are facing today
is the extremely high level of expertise and flexibility required in today’s marketplace.
It is a challenge we are willing to take on.

Nievelt Labor GmbH was founded in 1976 by Luise and Gottfried Nievelt. It is headquartered in Stockerau, a half-hour drive from the country’s capital, Vienna. The company was an approved construction materials testing laboratory until 1987, when we added a consulting service and focused above all on road condition surveys. We have since entered new business segments, and we have been developing new markets in Central and Eastern Europe since 1991.
