Today, in our traditional People of LMS section we are introducing our deputy project manager (Platov Airport in Rostov-on-Don, Stolitsa and Nebo shopping centers in Moscow) Doğa Çepiç.
Tell us what you do in Limak Marash company, your area of activity, functions, position.
At Limakmarashstroy, I hold the position of deputy project manager. I am engaged in administrative work within the framework of project management, monitor the implementation of the construction schedule, ensure compliance and optimization of budgets during the implementation of the project, and also directly participate in the organization of the facility commissioning.
How did your career in the construction industry begin? Where did you work before Limak Marash?
After graduating from the Kirikkale University in Turkey, I came to Russia because I wanted to develop as a civil engineer, and started working in Marashstroy company.
I participated in the implementation of many company's projects. My first project was the construction of an industrial facility, RusVinil, an enterprise for the production of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) in Kstovo, the Nizhny Novgorod region. This project became a starting point for me in my professional development.
In Marashstroy company I managed to work on the implementation of the following projects: Sky shopping center in Nizhny Novgorod (the current name is Nebo shopping center), a residential complex in Ulyanovsk and the Maxi shopping center in Arkhangelsk.
After the merger of two companies — the Russian company Marashstroy and the Turkish construction company Limak Group — I took part in the construction of the Platov International Airport in Rostov-on-Don, Stolitsa shopping center in Moscow. And now I am working at the site of the future shopping and entertainment center Nebo in Moscow in the Solntsevo district.
What do you like most about your work?
Each new facility is a unique experience for me and for the growth of the company as a whole. What I like most about my work is that I have the opportunity to watch how future buildings grow: airports, residential complexes, shopping malls. These are incomparable feelings.
Share your successful cases. Do you implement your own developments, technologies that allow you to improve the quality and efficiency of your work?
Each project is a unique microorganism where everything is interconnected. Some components of the project implementation may not correspond to each other, for example, the foundation reinforcement project does not coincide with the column reinforcement project, and this problem requires a fast, effective, and most importantly, a balanced and optimized solution. My first priority as a civil engineer is to anticipate these 4-5 steps in advance during construction.
Every problem that arises during my work is a constant study of the construction sector and the search for new technologies that are best suited for a particular project, whether it is the construction of an airport or an industrial complex.
How do you see the development of your direction in the company? What prospects does the company have, in your opinion?
I acquired all my experience in engineering while implementing projects — first in Marashstroy company, and then in Limak Marash Group of Companies.
With each new project that the company participates in, I have the opportunity to improve my professionalism and acquire new knowledge about the latest technologies in the construction industry.
The more complex the project, the more opportunities for the company and its employees to grow.
