IMS Institute - Activities

The IMS Institute is a scientific research organization whose main activity is scientific research and applied work in the field of construction designs, housing construction, prestressing systems, construction materials technology, control of thermo and hydro- electric power plant equipment, protection of objects from water, heat, noise, fire, etc.
During its eight decades long and rich history, the IMS Institute has taken part in the biggest construction projects, both in the country and abroad (IMS construction technology has been used in a dozen of countries around the world) and during that time it has gained the reputation of an independent research and consulting organization.
Thanks to its personnel potential, equipment and technical means it possesses, the IMS Institute is capable of delivering qualified services in the field of its activities.

Constant work on improvement of the existing technologies and development of new ones, together with the development of informatics and quality system in the world, gets more and more important role in the Institute’s programmes. All this requires permanent education of the personnel and modernizing of the equipment with successful co-operation with ministries, other scientific research institutions, faculties and industry.

The activities of the IMS Institute are from various technical disciplines, and they include:

The field of materials
  • Stone, aggregate rock, sand
  • Construction ceramics
  • Concrete technology
  • Connective materials, insulations and anticorrosive protection
  • Construction physics
