So this has a huge impact on the climate of the business world, but that doesn't mean Brantas Abipraya shrinks the spirit of work to become even better.
Innovation is needed as an answer in facing the challenges ahead that are presented by the times to keep growing. The movement of changes and developments in the digital world has also encouraged Abipraya's people to work on implementing Building Information Modeling (BIM) technology in projects that are being worked on by Brantas Abipraya.

This is also proof that we are committed to always implementing the BUMN culture, especially here it is adaptive, by always innovating and being enthusiastic in moving or facing change, "concluded Suradi.
