Buildings are the challenge of our generation
The built environment is responsible for
about 40% of global carbon emissions.
For the sake of livability and resource efficiency, buildings need to get with the times.
Globally, labor-productivity growth in construction has not kept pace with
manufacturing or the total economy. *McKinsey&Co
By adopting a digital-first approach, construction can better manage data and decision-making, collaborate in real-time, and enhance safey and compliance. More accuracy means less uncertainty and risk.
Mistakes in design, construction and maintenance can lead to chronic human health
conditions known as sick building syndrome.
Indoor air pollution alone causes around 4.2 million premature deaths annually. *WHO
Roughly half of the raw materials we extract go into the world's built environment.
That's why construction waste should be recovered for reuse.
