Covid-19 pandemic has shown us among other things the importance of being flexible and adaptive. It has been key for businesses to react quickly and adapt to the fast changes that we all have experienced. There are positive aspects and opportunities coming from this difficult experience, as acceleration of digitalization of the construction sites, also enabling a more dynamic and efficient transfer of information between project stakeholders. In fact, the entire construction industry has benefited from this, consequently digital solution, internet / cloud -based solutions being ever more present as a direct consequence COVID 19 pandemic. Also, it had the effect of showing the benefits of a thorough planned approach to project management, which Brisk Group always deploys as part of our services. Having a structured and process driven approach to managing projects, we were able to react and respond in the new context and implement the required measures as to minimize any negative impacts. As one of the greats was saying: “To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often” – Winston Churchill.

Which are the advantages of your business and products, going forward? What are your expectations from the public sector, state projects to support future business?
It is clear that we are currently experiencing a recession, though this is not the kind of recession that has it fundamentals into mishandling of finance and economics. This is a recession based on external threat to our health, a sanitary crisis that impacts our ability to produce and consume (with a direct impact on supply and demand) with big emotional leverage as well. During these times, it is very important, for everyone of us to have a sense of security. This in turn will install confidence in society enabling everyone to feel more comfortable, fact that will have positive effects on the economy – bringing us closer to business as usual mode. As a consequence, it is crucial for business to react in these lines and create a safe and secure environment for their employees, customers and partners. It is very possible that we will see an adaptation / reconfiguration of office spaces, restaurants, high street business, etc.

What transformations you expect in your sector, their effects for the Romanian economy and in a regional perspective?
The construction industry is an essential cog in the mechanism of the economy. As always, the construction industry will play an important role in the revival of the economy. Brisk Group is well equipped to respond to the new trends and requirements of the market. We have all the tools to assure the success of our clients, the effective and efficient implementation and delivery of their projects. Speaking from our own experience we can see additional and necessary increased measures, in the context of COVID 19 pandemic, being implemented with regards to health and safety which naturally attract additional costs to the projects. Also, we can see a rearrangement in prices with regards to labor (as this is more available), cost of material being influenced in close relation to transport, delivery times and production. As we are still in a transition / adaptive period, with regards to the new circumstances, created by the coronavirus pandemic, our estimation indicates a returning to normal scenario in the following months as lockdown period measures in a number of countries will be lifted gradually. We are systematically entering in a more optimistic economic period with a sensible recovery in the first quarter of 2021.
