Local Authorities & Public Services

Adapting to changes in society to promote community safety


The local authorities and various State bodies have a continuing role in adapting to changes in society and its reforms, the better to meet all citizens' needs and ensure their greatest safety while promoting the economic attractiveness of the regions. Public sector bodies are also in charge of major real estate and infrastructure projects; in this context, they have to consider new guidelines on sustainable development (energy efficiency and sustainability) and incorporate new technological practices.
Apave and its experts can help you control your risks on a daily basis.
