GS E&C’s history
GS Engineering & Construction Corp. (hereafter, GS E&C) was established in 1969 and entered the overseas construction market in 1978. In 2002, GS E&C launched a new apartment brand called ‘Xi’ (eXtra intelligence), and in the next three years, in 2005, Xi apartments comes in first in the Korean Service Quality Index. In 2005, the company was renamed GS E&C after the LG group split into LG and GS. Even after the separation of groups, GS E&C have been in charge of most of the construction projects for LG affiliates such as LG Electronics and LG Chem. GS E&C took over the European company Inima, one of the world's leading water treatment company in 2012. In 2019, GS E&C was ranked the 24th largest international contractor among top 250 construction companies by ENR magazine (a widely regarded as one of the construction industry's most authoritative publications) and also listed on the DJSI (Dow Jones Sustainability Index) Asia-Pacific Index for 10 consecutive years.
GS E&C recently developed the 'Xi AI Platform', a big data-based and a customer-satisfied platform service that goes a step further from the existing home network and builds various data generated within the apartment complex through big data solutions, and creates new services by connecting them organically with various partners.
