Meet a team member: An interview with Andrijana Kuzmanoska

 

 

The uniqueness of Breon is the balance between the professional care for the clients, the team spirit inside the company, and the social responsibility for the community. Only by achieving this stability and having happy and healthy surroundings, we can prosper.

 

Like all stories, this one is also told best by those who have experienced it, and in our case – the team members. By meeting them you can build your picture of what the brand represents.

 

We had the pleasure of talking with Mrs. Kuzmanoska, a Master of Architecture, an experienced 3D BIM Technology professional, a working parent, and a true expert in multi-tasking and keeping a balance between the passion for the profession and the family.

1. As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?

As I remember, I wanted to be an artist or musician.

 

2. You are an Engineer Architect, what is the most important skill an architect should have and why?

First of all, analytical thinking. Before you start any project (design or construction) you must first analyze all the information you have collected, so only by merging those “puzzles” of information you can create the correct final “picture”.

 

3. The Breon team is a diverse group of professionals, enthusiasts, and pro-active people. What is your favorite thing that you do as a team?

I like Monday morning walks with the team. I think that this activity helps a lot to “wake up” and restart your brain after the weekend.

 

 4. In Breon Engineering you work with some of the latest software in construction and create 3D BIM models. Can you tell us more about BIM technology?

With BIM (Building Information Model) we create 3D Models that include data, associated with physical and functional characteristics. That means when some 3D element is changed the view is also updated. We can use the information in the model to improve our design before it is built. By working in BIM we make sure we will have fewer mistakes (BIM is more precise), smaller project risks, better project outcomes, and virtual reality of the project.

5. The projects Breon works on are for the Swiss market. This is a very competitive market for your high-scale construction industry. Can you share with us some details about a current project that you’re working on?

At this moment we are working on a really interesting project in Zürich, which includes a partial renovation of an existing hall and construction of a new modern depot hall. It also contains 2 residential towers between them and a public area with commercial and service sectors.

 

6. Besides your professional success as an architect, you are also the mother of a 3-year-old boy. What is your advice for other working parents?

Those who are parents know that it is quite difficult, especially in this period with all the restrictions and a situation that we are living in. I am very thankful to my family and to Breon of course, who are always supporting me. My opinion is that the key to success is to find a balance between the passion for the profession and your family who is always in the first place.

 

7. The global pandemic continues to affect all the aspects of our everyday life. What changed in Breon and how did the team function?

In Breon, there are no maјor changes, except the fact that we all respect protection recommendations and we keep a distance. This situation has an influence on every part of our life, but we need to learn to live in these new conditions.

 

8. Working from home has its challenges. How was it for you and what was the best part?

There were a few days that I needed to work from home. As I mentioned before, I am thankful to my family for the support that they gave me and for helping me take care of my son while I was working, because it is almost impossible to do these two things at the same time.
