Like millions of businesses around the world, COVID-19, has meant changes to ways of working and doing business at Projects & Designs Engineers. “This year, has been a particularly challenging year, says Stefi. “Back at the beginning, in March, April, when things were starting to get complicated, we took some days off just to see where things were going. And then some of the guys decided to work from home. Others like me came to the office. So I was particularly busy here working in the office and getting everything organised.”
While some of their larger projects were put on hold for a while, their reputation for reliability and quality of service meant that the company picked up a lot of renovation projects as local residents sought out engineers to help with improvements to their homes.
Now, Stefi says that construction is returning to Queensland: “Many people from New South Wales and Victoria are moving back. And even expats from Dubai and other parts of the world, they’re coming back and they’re buying properties. The property market here is so hot at the moment. Everyone was expecting that the market would drop. As it was really uncertain at some point, but now it is a stronger market.”
