Engineer Rubén Rojkés talks with us concerning Avanco and the growth opportunities arising within the Argentinian construction sector for 2019. Civil Engineer Ruben Rojkes has been a true estate developer for over twenty five years, “building the dreams of the people”.
1. What was your motivation when making Avanco?
AVANCO is an acronym that comes from advancing by building. I’m a civil engineer and construction is a passion for me. I made a decision to maneuver forward in life, building, making, that’s what I’m passionate about. Once I raise myself, Ruben, what’s what makes you fill the most fulfilled regarding your work, I’m not passionate regarding shopping for and selling solely, I need to create, manufacture, develop a product, that’s what I love.
2. What was your first successful project?
It had been the primary building I engineered which I launched nearly 28 years ago; it was a very little building, in the road San Luis 77. It consisted of only 11 units with one or 2 bedrooms, with a lobby and 2 higher floors, without elevator. I sold it quickly. It was my first work, and thank God, all the works I have done are successful and fully sold.
3. How does one manage the balance between family life and your work?
I think family must be considered as the foremost important COMPANY we tend to have, that suggests that we tend to must take care of it, dedicate time to them, correct if one makes a blunder, get pleasure from it. My family is my support, my motivation, I get pleasure from it terribly much, and I invariably strive to form time to share with them. I get pleasure from spending time with my wife and children. Even though my kids are grown, we have a tendency to still share a ton of fine times. I continually make time those moments, with trips, meals, or playing sports with them.
4. What recommendation would you give to future entrepreneurs?
I would tell them to be passionate and put a lot of dedication to what they do. That they ask for advice from people with more experience. I consulted a heap of veterans once I wasn’t clear or I had doubts concerning a project. Work with a team of folks who are passionate about what they do. It is an activity that you just can’t do without a sensible team.
5. What are the foremost innovative projects that are developed within the region?
I feel that at the Housing and Countries level, our company is that the one that’s innovating the most in the Region, with the type of amenities of our comes, and also the expertise of the architects that we tend to have, we are operating with a fashionable design and we tend to are in continuous evolution.
We tend to recently completed a residential building referred to as The Point, in which we tend to left standing a stunning old facade of a house that’s over a hundred years recent, and combined it with lovely modern buildings. It is one thing that is seen a lot in Europe however it is the primary time it’s done in the area. It had been a success.
