Industrial development but with Socratic contemplation and Aristotelian logical linear thinking!
 
 

We believe that the critical challenges for construction and infrastructure corporate entities are (a) increase productivity and thus profitability – competition is shrinking profit margins and constraining essential reinvestment in new technology and better business practices; (b) project performance and complexity – thin profit margins can wipe out profits for the whole company; (c) skilled labour shortages – as the traditionalist and baby boomer generations are already gone or leaving the industry because of retirement, work ethic, attitude, behavior and decreasing experience increase the risk of deliverable delays, quality construction problems and other; (d) sustainability – smart planning and sustainable design thus a new approach to project management are more than ever required as rising global population, environment risks, climate change and water management make a complex environment even more complex.
