Optimization of Buildings and Infrastructure

The construction sector is a significant source of CO2 emissions and a central economic activity. Optimization can help the sector through the green transition and greatly improve resource efficiency while respecting the actors' other interests.

Presently the construction sector does not fully use the potential of digital tools and decision support, which improve the efficiency.

Lack of efficiency causes many kinds of resource waste: Time, materials, CO2, city space and so on. We see potential in every step of the chain, from architectural design and pre-project phases through construction, logistics and maintenance.

We work in projects that tackle better material usage in building construction, better efficiency in mass transportation for e.g., road construction and with better decision support for architects and developers when planning a site.
