Three top specialists from Leviatan Design explained how current uncertainties in the construction sector can be counteracted, at the conference “Construction – The Engine of the Economy in 2023.”
The event took place on February 9, 2023, and was organized by eDevize. The conference discussed numerous current topics, such as the uncertainties about the workforce and the prices of construction materials, economic trends in this market, digitalization of construction sites, and the specific needs of this industry.
Macro-Level Perspectives on the Construction Market
Cătălin Podaru, CEO of Leviatan Design, presented in the first panel discussion a series of macro-level perspectives on the construction market. These included the challenge of absorbing funds from the National Recovery and Resilience Plan (PNRR) and infrastructure investments in the context of Ukraine’s reconstruction, human capital versus artificial intelligence, revolutionary technologies in construction, new models in making major investments and sustainable project development from an ideal to a profitable business model, and improving the quality of life in the long term.
The use of artificial intelligence and new technologies in the workflow is one of the solutions identified by Cătălin Podaru to successfully combat current uncertainties in the construction field. “AI will radically improve productivity across all segments, from contracting, procurement, document generation, project integration, to quantity lists and estimates. Leviatan Design has managed to efficiently use modern digital tools and significantly reduce the time dedicated to these processes, with much greater control of quality, traceability, and the manner the offer is made,” said Cătălin Podaru, CEO of Leviatan Design.
Assessment and Correct Offering in the Construction Sector
In the second panel discussion, Gabriel Marcu, Chief Technical Officer at Leviatan Design, explained how to correctly assess and offer in construction, in the current context.
Thus, Gabriel Marcu, Chief Technical Officer at Leviatan Design, showed that the budget dedicated to design dictates from the start the level of experience and professionalism of the specialists who are co-opted in the development of a project, and time is imperatively necessary for understanding, discussing, detailing, and correctly budgeting the project.
The Digitalization Process in Construction
Romina Posea, Head of Planning & Continuous Improvement Office at Leviatan Design, presented in the third panel discussion a series of good practices regarding digitalization in construction.
In the case of Leviatan Design, the digitalization process and the use of innovative solutions have made a significant contribution to overcoming current challenges in the construction sector.
