From Architectural Conservation to Leading the Urban Renewal Field
Initially, Magshimim focused on conservation and rezoning with one of its first projects being the conservation of a 42-apartmets building in Yehuda HaYamit Street in Tel Aviv-Yafo for the purpose of constructing 200 affordable housing units. Afterward, the owners decided to focus on urban renewal, which was an emerging field at the time, while operating in accordance with the strictest quality standards and putting people first - both the future residents and the people whom the company cooperates with, in every project it builds.
Transparency and Reliability
Throughout the years, Magshimim developed a unique work model, which is based on the understanding that the apartment owners are full partners in the renewal process. They share the process from the initial feasibility checks and up to the construction completion and building’s maintenance for preserving it in its rejuvenated state. In each project, all of the residents’ needs and desires are thoroughly reviewed and the renewal process is carried out with a full and ongoing dialogue with the residents, in order to create a pleasant living environment that would significantly improve the residents’ life quality. All of the planning and construction processes are transparent, and residents would soon be able to access the company’s systems and check the project’s status in real-time.
Quality Standards - Gold Standard
Magshimim was the first Urban Renewal - Tama 38 company which QA system was reviewed by the SII and was found to be compliant with the requirements of the Israeli and international standards: ISO 9001:2008, IS 18001 (OSH), and IS 14001:2004 (Certified Environmental Management System).
The company highly believes in the implementation of innovation and advanced technological tools that would march the conservative construction industry into the 21st century. The company’s construction processes are based on cutting-edge trends in global planning, construction and architectural design, which are implemented in projects in Israel. All of the projects and work processes are managed through advanced monitoring and control methods that guarantee a complete coordination between the various entities. On the basis of this strategic approach, the company developed an advanced digital system that enables its customers, apartment owner and new residents, to continuously monitor the construction status throughout all of the planning, execution and check-up stages. In addition, the system provides the company’s subcontractors with optimal payment and budget monitoring capabilities. This innovative system relies on systematic and organizational processes that enable the company to deliver its buildings at the fastest time while meeting all of its commitments to its suppliers and customers.
An Execution Company that Meets Strict Safety Standards
As part of the group, the company employs an execution company that builds the projects. This provides Magshimim with complete and strict control of the progress of construction in every one the projects it builds. It also enables it to significantly shorten the construction time and streamline the construction process while minimizing construction defects. The execution company in Magshimim projects works in accordance with strict standards and advanced work methods, including the acquisition of advanced scaffoldings from Germany which comply with EU safety standards, in order to improve the work safety on its sites.
