As land owners, developers engage and work closely with other Built Environment firms to develop, redevelop and rejuvenate the buildings we see everyday! As property owners, they maintain, operate and manage existing buildings too!
Builders manage an ecosystem of sub-contractors to plan, execute, oversee and inspect construction projects, from design to project's completion! Processes are increasingly digitalised to enhance productivity - this means less time spent on site, and more time to plan ahead!
Consultants design different systems that we see (and may not see) within a building, ranging from architectural, structural, mechanical to electrical! They oversee and administer contracts, and provide cost management advisory too!
Facilities Management Company ensures that buildings are well maintained, clean and safe. They supervise sub-contractors, manage operating budget and optimise longer-term building performance, such as energy efficiency!
Technology providers are the digital spine of the sector, enabling greater productivity through innovation! From robotics and automation to digital platforms and systems, the technology scene in the Built Environment sector is growing steadily!
