Corporate Origins

Gökkar Construction was founded in 1990 by 3 brothers (two architects and one literature graduate). First, known as Göktaş Construction, at the early stages, they started selling architectural projects and construction materials.  In 1997 Göktaş Construction was renamed as Gökkar Construction. And now from what they have learned and experienced, the company has taken a turn in project planning and management.

Gökkar Construction gives services to the sector not only in housing production; their mission is not only to build plans consisting of educational buildings and industrial facilities, or plans for hotel buildings and old restoration works, but also to create a city where all types of people can live and reside in peace. During the last decade our team have designed a variety of urban transformation projects, if required, with protection from seismic hazards or, simply, to quench the needs for a better life.
