How digitalization of the construction sector simplifies business and what impact it will have on the post-war reconstruction of Ukraine

“If you compare the permitting process before versus now, it is like heaven and earth,” says Fedir Delehan, director of Renome Comfort, a real estate developer based in Rivne, Ukraine. Within the past year, Fedir has successfully used Ukraine’s new Single Electronic System in the Construction Sector (SESCS) three times. It has revolutionized his work permitting process.

The construction sector had suffered from systemic corruption for years. The launch of SESCS helps to eliminate opportunities for corruption and bureaucratic obstacles as the system automates all processes of state regulation in the construction sector. Documents cannot be forged, and every submission, transfer, and signature of documents is traceable.
