BuildEXT won foreign market access support

The year started with great success for BuildEXT Kft, after the company won a nearly 50 million HUF tender from the National Export Protection Program launched within the framework of the Economy Protection Action Plan announced by the Hungarian Government.

Csaba Livják, the founding owner of BuildEXT Kft. received the certificate on Foreign Market Access Support from Levente Magyar, Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Budapest.

The Deputy Foreign Minister said at the ceremonial handover event: “The situation caused by COVID-19 must be seen as an advantage, in peacetime, there has never been a year in which the government has mobilized hundreds of billions of forints to protect and expand the positions of Hungarian exporters.”

The aim of the Hungarian government’s national export protection program launched last year in the framework of the Economic Protection Action Plan is to help domestic enterprises compete in foreign markets and preserve and strengthen the Hungarian export performance achieved in recent years.

“BuildEXT was an architecture and then a general design company a few years ago, but by now it has become a major player in the region’s digitization of the construction industry. Our office responded to the changed economic situation due to COVID-19 not by cutting costs, but by increasing the number of employees by 30 people, acquiring equipment and strengthening R&D activities, and applying for Foreign Market Support.

As a result, we have implemented technological developments in the field of building information modeling (BIM) that will reshape and make the domestic construction industry more efficient with its world-leading paradigm shift solutions. Advanced digital twin technology also brings spectacular acceleration and efficiency gains in design, construction coordination, and building operations. The 30-50% of the time, energy, stress, and cost saved in this way is reflected in cheaper construction, operation, energy consumption, and, ultimately, much lower CO2 emissions, and a more sustainable built environment.

“It is our responsibility to apply this
technological knowledge as
widely as possible.”

“to share it with local players on the market, increase the country’s export capacity, and create high-quality jobs for engineers living in Hungary or returning from abroad” – Csaba Livják summed up following the event.
