What is Kreo?
Kreo is cloud-based pre-construction planning software centred on Building Information Modelling (BIM). It uses artificial intelligence (AI) to speed up most aspects of pre-construction planning and design – right from the feasibility stage. It is designed for ease of use and to facilitate collaboration.
How does Kreo use AI?
Kreo uses AI in a few ways:
- Kreo Design’s AI does generative design of residential and office buildings. It optimises massing and floor plans for maximum area within the constraints given by the user and building regulations. It offers multiple variations for the user to choose from.
- Kreo Takeoff’s AI classifies BIM model elements.
- Kreo Plan’s AI classifies BIM model elements, assigns activities to the model and creates a build sequence (4D BIM). It generates at least five cost options to choose from for the build, ranging from fastest to cheapest (5D BIM).
How does Kreo differ from other BIM software?
Kreo is a Revit plugin, as well as a standalone tool. This means you can choose to create your BIM model in Revit and import into Kreo, or create your model in Kreo and export to Revit.
Kreo is used for feasibility studies, in the case of Kreo Design, or BIM project management, in the case of Kreo Plan. It uniquely serves everyone involved in pre-construction planning.
Kreo is cloud-based and is a one-stop shop for cost and schedule estimation. It is customer-centric software, designed with and for its customers, to make BIM as simple as possible.
Construction 2020: an open opinion on what the experts say
Following a recent article in Building.com about experts’ vision for construction 2020, here’s a Kreo view into some of the comments.
Digital innovation in asset management and construction
At last year’s Homes UK event in London, a panel was asked to present the case for digital innovation in asset management and construction. They offered solutions that would enable digital innovation.
Funding and the Future of MMC
The Kreo team recently attended the Homes UK 2019 conference, where Julia Valentine spoke on a panel on 'Digital Innovation in Construction'. The team's attention was also caught by a panel on the future of modern methods of construction (MMC) regarding ...
