IAG collaborates with the client to detect improvement points, to search for the most modern equipment for the process, and to design the required facilities. The next step is to assess the investment and define the work sequence that, affecting plant operability as little as possible, enables the fastest adaptation.
For driving and monitoring the adaptation, IAG provides dispatch and plant engineering, as well as the legalization of new equipment and facilities, monitoring and controlling work, and ultimately what is defined as Project Management.

Management of permits, authorizations, and periodic inspections
When a company decides to implement an activity or expand an existing one, it needs to obtain prior authorization from the various official bodies involved (Town Hall, Councils, Confederation, etc.). IAG carries out the technical projects and final certificates that are necessary, depending on the characteristics of its activity, and all the procedures necessary to register, cancel, or expand an activity or installation, in the various official bodies, legalizing any of these situations.
In addition, if your activity is industrial, IAG concurrently carries out and processes the technical projects and final certificates of each specific installation, to obtain the mandatory and necessary registration in the Industrial Register and thus be able to carry out the activity and obtain the necessary permits for electricity, gas, water contracting, and operation.
Regarding the technical and legal obligations motivated by the development of your activity, IAG carries out a personalized study of what the client’s obligations are and their periodicity. From an environmental point of view, IAG keeps up to date all the permits and authorizations that are necessary, registering and legalizing those environmental aspects that are not authorized.
