In 2012, Africa Israel won the contract from the Tel Aviv Municipality to build the parking garage next to Assuta Hospital. Yet before construction even began in 2014, the CEO of Danya Cebus, the subsidiary company carrying out the construction, Ronen Ginsburg, described in a 2013 interview how the company was chosen to carry out the project. He explained to the Calcalist, Ynet's sister publication. that they chose to use an architect rather than an engineer to save money.

The Labor and Welfare Committee of the Knesset held an emergency session on Thursday with the CEO of the construction company that built the parking garage that collapsed, Ronen Ginzburg of Danya Cebus, to discuss the circumstances surrounding the collapse of the structure.

 

Kulanu MK Elie Elalouf, the committee chairman, said "The committee sadly foresaw this. We held seven hearings on the situation. We saw that there is serious negligence in the construction sector. No one held a discussion on the required preparations for the massive amount of construction going on in the country, which is only expected to grow. We've also seen the lack of preparedness on the part of government ministries."
