03 Dec At the centre, the project
Giovanni Battista Furlan, President of NET Engineering International and Vice President of OICE, takes part in the event for the presentation of the 2019 Report on the AEC sector in Italy
On December 4th, at the Major Hall of the FAST Congress Center in Milan, the meeting “Imprenditorialità e centralità del progetto” (Entrepreneurship and centrality of the project) will be held, an event by prof. Aldo Norsa and Guamari Srl, during which the 2019 Report on the Italian Architecture Engineering and Construction industry will be presented.
Some of the main companies in the AEC sector will participate in this meeting / debate which will be opened by the greetings of the leading exponents of the Conforma, ANCE and OICE associations.
As Vice-President of OICE, an association of engineering, architecture and technical-economic consulting organisations, engineer Giovanni Battista Furlan will hold a speech that reaffirms the centrality of the Project as a fundamental requirement for the activity of engineers and architects.
The engineer Furlan emphasises that «the GDP of the construction sector represents more than 7% of the total national GDP and without engineers, architects and the organised engineering and architecture companies represented by OICE, this wealth would not be produced. This is why the centrality of the Project becomes a value that must necessarily be shared by all the protagonists of the construction sector, starting from the legislator.
Even beyond possible divergences on specific aspects, all stakeholders (clients, designers, validators, builders, financial institutions, and above all citizens as end users of the work) must always remember to put the Project at the center, in order to obtain ‘vitruvianly’ useful, stable and beautiful works, but also sustainable from an environmental and economic-financial point of view»
