Attending great real estate events
This year we had the chance to participate at two important events: DEVO – The International Forum of Large Developers, where Florin Popa, Managing Partner Vitalis Consulting, talked about The Light One office building and other industry facts within the “Large Scale Project Management” session and Danfoss Conference, where we discussed about the evolution of Romanian construction market and the latest trends and innovations in the construction industry, with prior focus on sustainability and energy efficiency.
Building trust through innovation and sustainability
From the very beginning of our activity in the field and this year as well, our main focus was on creating and developing sustainability in every single phase of the projects we coordinated. We did that by creating sustainable buildings with long term benefits in quality, efficiency and safety in order to improve the comfort and quality of life for those who will have the chance to live or work in and to decrease the negative environmental impact of the construction processes.
Today we are a Certified Energy Auditor providing Energy Performance Certificate for the buildings we help developing across Romania. Over the years, to support our efforts towards sustainability, we were involved in representative activities for this area, such as the establishment of the Romanian Green Building Council in 2008, when we attended as a founding member.
Achieving work recognition
Today, after over 13 years of experience and hard work, we are extremely proud of being recognized as one of the key players providing consultancy services in the Construction and Real Estate area, both in Romania and abroad, as the projects we had coordinated have crossed the country’s borders to Ukraine, UK and Moldova.
Over the years our work and efforts were rewarded within the prestigious CIJ Awards Gala Romania, as we brought home 6 of the “Best Project Management Company of the Year” awards, out of 10 nominations and we are happy to be again this year for the 11th time on the nominees list for the same category.
