New Patisserie in Kever Benjamin
I finished the plans for the Poultry Slaughterhouse and according to the reports, it may be rejected because I did not include a section of the Romold grease interceptor. I have the drawing on my desk but judged it to be too trivial and standard to include it in the Technical Report. Well, a true Israeli environmental bureaucrat is physically unable to approve a project at the first submission. Something must be wrong, surely something is missing.
Today I studied the new supermarket in Sharona Center, and the new patisserie in the industrial area. The supermarket is being remodelled with shining chrome, and looks very impressive. The place was full of people visiting the new Tribunals, the Social Security and the phone company offices. The place has changed hands and names several times, may be the new chain will succeed where others failed. The patisserie is the same story, a large building on the industrial area´s main street (Rehov Taas) that has changed owners almost every year. The new entrepreneur is investing a lot of money in remodelling the place.
I am working very very hard, I am producing first class professional designs and reports, but my income is under average. I am hearing that my prices are not so low anymore. How do other consulting engineerings survive in this country?
