The economic situation in Egypt during the last 6 monthsThe Egyptian economy, and the status of construction and contracting companies: - All economic sectors have been affected by the repercussions of the closure imposed by the Corona pandemic and decisions and procedures have contributed to increasing pressures on the construction sector, the latest of which is the decision to stop licenses and construction work for a period of 6 months in all governorates of Egypt. This decision exacerbated the construction and contracting companies' crises. Eng. Shams El-Din Youssef, a member of the Board of Directors of the Egyptian Federation of Construction and Building Contractors, a member of the Compensation Committee, and Chairman of the Board of Directors of Al Shams Contracting Company. He believes that the law gives the state the right to review all licenses and apply the law to violators in the implementation work and the law allows the state to implement this without need. To take the decision to suspend licenses, which affected many contracting companies in the governorates for contracting to supply raw materials and building materials, in addition to that the decision contributed to laying off a large number of workers and increasing the number of unemployment in difficult circumstances that everyone is going through. In spite of this, a large proportion of construction and contracting companies affiliated with the New Urban Communities and Cities Authority and mega-projects such as the New Administrative Capital, the New Alamein City, and a number of fourth-generation cities are not subject to this decision and have not been affected by the suspension of building licenses. In May 2020, the Central Bank included the construction and contracting sector for the industrial and agricultural private sector initiative, in order to help reduce the burden on contracting companies, provide the necessary liquidity to complete their projects, as well as increase the employment rate in the sector. Central Bank Initiative Text: - The Central Bank issued a decision to include contracting companies whose turnover and annual revenues reach 50 million pounds or more for the initiative that states: Availability of 100 billion pounds through banks with an annual 8% diminishing return to finance industrial companies and companies operating in the agricultural field on a regular basis and the aim of including the construction and contracting sector for the initiative is to reduce the financial burdens borne by contracting companies and in order to help provide the necessary liquidity to complete projects. As well as encouraging companies to participate. in the initiative, to reflect positively on the entire contracting sector. Construction and contracting companies ’opinion on the Central Bank’s initiative: - The opinions of officials of local contracting companies differed regarding their benefit from the Central Bank's decision to include them in the initiative. ● Some believe that they were able to benefit and obtain financing to complete their projects that were disrupted due to the Corona pandemic on the one hand, and their delayed financial dues with government agencies on the other hand. ● While others believe that the conditions imposed by the Central Bank are incapable of contracting for new projects. Many senior economic officials in Egypt see the construction sector as the locomotive of the economy and it has great importance in circulating cash liquidity in many other sectors. Structuring the conditions of construction and contracting companies: - The Egyptian state has tended to structure the conditions of contracting companies, especially the small companies that represent the vast majority in the Egyptian Federation of Construction and Building Contractors, and they are the main public on which it relies on the implementation of many projects. The conditions of the profession are gradually being structured, the efficiency of the entities working in it is raised, and classification mechanisms have been introduced in front of construction and contracting companies so that each seeks to possess a strong technical, administrative and financial apparatus suitable for promotion, raising its degree to a higher category, and entering into larger work, and adding new specializations in the sector helped. With the development plans for the real estate market to create new opportunities for work in the country for contracting companies in various fields, including: Building maintenance work. Maintenance and renovation of roads. Maintenance and renovation of facilities. This small contractor contributed to working strongly despite the difficult situation in recent times. It also contributed to supporting the preservation of the state's real estate wealth and economic growth.

Reconciliation law and the construction and building sector in EgyptIn recent months, many information and news have circulated related to the "reconciliation" law and the effect of this law on a large number of citizens, as well as companies operating in the field of construction and buildings, and most of the major companies working in the construction and building sector abide by all legal standards for construction, as well as safety and protection factors. But random construction is more than the law has been subjected to in order to organize and protect. The law of reconciliation and settlement of legal violations related to construction on state land is required. And also the law has been rejecting buildings that violate safety and security requirements and pose a threat to the lives of citizens. An application for a settlement and the decision shall be based on the visit and report of the advisory committee. The advisory committee makes a detailed report on the thickness of the concrete pillars, the load distribution, studies all building plans, examines the building specifications for comparison, and answers the most important question: "Is the building compatible and suitable for the needs on which the building's license is given?” The advantages of the reconciliation law for the construction sector and building: - • The main objective of the law is to protect life and property • Evaluating and classifying buildings throughout the Arab Republic of Egypt during the last 20 years • Identifying buildings that are dangerous and unsafe for residents to deal with • Knowing whether the building can be restored and repaired or demolished, whether in whole or in part. Cons of the Reconciliation Law for the Construction and Building Sector: - • The short period of reconciliation and submission of requests, especially with the increasing numbers of registration. • Increased pressure on advisory committees may lead to routine inspection and failure to provide a complete report. • The collapse of one building that was evaluated and settled according to the law after reconciliation, the law may lose its relevance. The most important situations in which reconciliation is prohibited: - • Exceeding the building of floors in height, in violation of civil aviation decisions. • Not submitting a request to reconcile construction conditions on state-owned lands. • Building violation of the construction requirement on lands under the protection of the Antiquities Authority • Violation of construction requirements for building on lands that are protected by beaches and the Nile. • Buildings violating structural safety. • Buildings in violation of the decisions of the Ministry of Defense. Safety tests for buildings and constructions: - Buildings higher than 6 floors are tested through • Examine the general structure of the building. • The quality of concrete used in building and construction • The ability of concrete to bear “Soil is one among the foremost important factors affecting building safety. It may be that all the components of the building and construction process conform to specifications accurately. In terms of concrete bearing capacity, mixing ratios, and appropriate height, but ... the building may nonetheless pose a danger due to the nature of the soil and the ground on which the building is being constructed. Engineers must take into account the nature of the soil and treat it before embarking on building and construction, regardless of money, time, or effort that costs to preserve the security and safety of the building and the lives of citizens. In the end, the reconciliation law, despite the objection of some citizens to it because of the cost and the sums that must be paid, starting from the registration fees and up to the amount that is estimated ... However, the importance of inventorying, recording and evaluating buildings, protecting citizens and preserving lives and property is one of the most important advantages of the law. The current situation also informs us that building and construction by major companies that have a prominent name and history in the engineering community is the most appropriate choice for real estate investment and the preservation of money and lives. ref: alaharm news for more news about construction &industrial world: constguide news constguide : It covers also construction news, tenders, the Encyclopedia, magazine, and jobs Required in the field of construction in the Middle East and Africa.
