There is Constantly a Way

As I reflect around a single of the most uncommon decades that we have ever had, I am reminded of one particular reality – ‘there is always a way’.  A single of our most powerful Main Values at DRB is – “Focus on the Solution, not the Problem.  The reply is usually in the Solution”.  This has and continues to be a core benefit for the companies I have started or the place I am part of the management crew.

When the crew believes that the alternative will be predictable and will resolve the obstacle, it modifications almost everything.  I am confident everyone has been about true trouble solvers.  Individuals who, when confronted with a challenge instantly, concentrate on the remedy and not the difficulty or who to blame.  When the workforce leaders have this target, difficulties get solved faster with notably a lot less conflict.

With the challenge of COVID, this outlook has by no means been more crucial.

This basic “solution finding” theory directs the management and the job team’s target on finding prosperous results.  This core value has enabled our groups to exceed customer anticipations.  We definitely think that no obstacle is far too tough to prevail over.

When place into use, terrific achievements will take place.  Examples involve:

  • The design and style and reconstruction of a vacation resort soon after a hurricane on a Caribbean island – defining the scope of work, acquiring acceptance for the $58M price range, then applying the prepare to provide the vacation resort all in 7 months and on price range, in time for the peak time.
  • Defining a new Town Organization and implementing that framework and method in 45 days, enabling the Town to meet up with the State’s demanded deadline.


As a country, we will conquer the COVID Pandemic.  The business local community has taken steps to tackle countrywide considerations and uncover answers, together with producing 3 vaccines in just 8 months.  Working with the Federal Governing administration where by the concentrate was on getting rid of hurdles without compromising safety has led to, what at very first ended up unimaginable achievements.

The Design business has shown that they can maintain manufacturing even though defending personnel, vendors, and subcontractors.  Most firms have been capable to keep on to run all through this essential time.

A person of the major indicators for the Building Business is design and style contracts and layout billings. Given that March, the quantity of layout inquires, and billings has ongoing to increase indicating a positive indicator for long run development.  The next AIA supplied chart reflects that design inquiries and billings are again growing (facts details over 50% suggest advancement).

Hospitality is 1 of our core market place segments.  The vacation marketplace proceeds to be adversely impacted by the pandemic, on the other hand, there are pockets of results.  Accommodations positioned in close proximity to medical facilities and heat holiday vacation locations continue high occupancies.   Our on line casino customers are optimistic for the around phrase as revenues carry on to exceed Pre-COVID returns.  We also see some favourable info for freeway resorts and these located absent from urban centers.

Industrial warehouses and land improvement are two industry segments enduring good progress and creditors are extremely interested in these tasks.

In summary, concentrating on the resolution will present a distinctive standpoint.  The benefit is always in the “Power of Perspective”.
