Firm

Ben Zur Group develops and builds residential urban renewal projects. We concentrate on a limited number of projects and pay much attention to every project and each client.

We believe that the key to success in executing projects with such technical and human complexities, lies with the developer’s level of expertise, involvement, and commitment throughout the entire project. As a vertically integrated firm, we typically act as both the developer and builder/ general contractor in our projects, while conducting other key functions (such as project management & supervision, sales & marketing, etc) in house.

The firm is led by Omer Ben Zur – a 3rd generation of local developers and builders, with extensive real estate experience in Israel and abroad as well as engineering and business education.

Omer Ben Zur

Mr. Ben Zur is a real estate developer and licensed builder/ general contractor in the state of Israel. He began his real estate career after graduating with an M.B.A from the UCLA Anderson School of Management (Honor society), with positions in commercial real estate finance, acquisitions and asset management, in Southern California. He then entered the Israeli real estate construction and development business by joining “Soffer Ben Zur” – a veteran development and construction firm which his father co-founded.

Omer’s involvement in all aspects of the project throughout its lifecycle and his close cooperation with the various professionals, allows him to make a meaningful impact on each project.

  • In addition to his M.B.A, Mr. Ben Zur holds a B.Sc degree in Industrial Engineering from Tel Aviv University as well as a Practical Civil/Structural Engineering degree (with distinction) from Shenkar College of Engineering, Design & Art.

Our Values

 

“Derech Eretz” (Good Manners)

The sages of the Mishna and the Talmud rightfully claimed that “Derech Eretz preceded Torah”. In our daily interactions, we strive to always treat people respectfully and fairly while providing our customers with a warm, personal service throughout the process.

.

Human Life

While construction is a dynamic and exciting process, we are well aware that in the absence of continued and determined attention to safety, construction can easily become dangerous. Since human life is of outmost importance to us, we shall always go above and beyond to ensure the well-being of our workers, customers, neighbors, visitors and everyone passing by our construction sites.

.

Reliability

Since every construction project is a prototype, built by manpower who doesn’t always pay enough attention to quality, construction defects can be found at various levels in every project. This problem escalates dramatically when the developer is not intimately involved in the construction process. To mitigate this problem, the Ben Zur Group acts as the builder (general contractor) in most of its development projects, and always takes a “hands on” approach towards construction.

By doing so, we drastically reduce and number and severity of construction defects in our projects, and significantly enhance our ability to complete them on schedule and on budget while providing superior customer service during construction.

 

Sustainability

Over the past decade, it has become clear that climate change is actually happening, and that we’ve got to take meaningful measures to keep global warming under control.

One of the most promising areas in which to act is the construction industry, as construction consumes 25%-40% of the energy and 33%-50% of the raw material in the developed world, while producing 10%-40% of our planet’s solid waste. Furthermore, buildings are responsible for 60% of electricity consumption and 40% of water consumption, and produce approx. 30% of greenhouse gas emissions.

By implementing the principles of green building, resource consumption can be reduced dramatically. This will not only benefit our earth, but will first and foremost benefit our clients via lower energy, water, operational and maintenance bills as well as improved health and living conditions.

.

Continued Learning & Development

In a world that is rapidly advancing, businesses face two alternatives: to improve, evolve and lead – or stay behind and fade. The inert desire to initiate and take action, the satisfaction from the process of creation, and the prospects of doing things differently, to learn, improve, and keep evolving from one project to another while striving to perfection – are the driving forces which help us keep going with much optimism while dealing effectively with the many challenges along the way.
