Construction project management company Drees & Sommer Romania estimates a turnover of approximately EUR 2 million in 2010, similar to the one posted in 2009. “2011 will be a difficult year and we don’t see any growth. Our target is to maintain the current turnover next year also,” said Anton Stroe, technical director at Drees & Sommer Romania.
For the past two years OMV Petrom has been among the company’s most important clients, generating about EUR 500,000 of its overall turnover in 2009 and 2010. The partnership started back in 2006 and over the years it covered project management services for the demolition and rehabilitation of Petrom gas stations and warehouses.
In 2011 the company plans to focus on facility management and infrastructure consulting and estimates that about EUR 300,000 will be generated by the continuation of its partnership with OMV Petrom. Another business direction that Drees & Sommer Romania plans to tackle on the medium and long run is green buildings consultancy and related certifications. “We see demand for such services but the market is still in its early beginning. Only in about three to five years we can talk about a local market for green buildings,” said Marc Porath (pictured), managing director of the company’s local branch.
Drees & Sommer has been present in Romania since 2005. Founded in 1970 in Germany the company now manages projects worth EUR 6.6 billion (annual value).
