TLDR: We are not unbiased. We believe in MMC and that the traditional way of building should be changed. In this blog we compare the pros & cons of each development option and our tool to compare them, Kreo Modular. We also examine a particular use case ...
Building Information Modelling, or BIM, is being increasingly used across the construction industry to make project delivery more efficient and more predictable. However, amongst quantity surveyors and estimators, BIM adoption is still quite low - Kreo’s ...
Following a recent article in Building.com about experts’ vision for construction 2020, here’s a Kreo view into some of the comments.
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.

Everyone’s talking about modern methods of construction. But very few organisations in the UK are embracing it.
Kreo and LogiKal Projects recently collaborated on a webinar: Project controls in construction will never be the same again. It inspired us to look into demonstrating the impact advanced technology can have when it comes to project planning.
Let's set the scene: Tech @ Housing Conference, Manchester, late June 2019. Andrew Carpenter, Chair of BIM 4 Housing and Chief Executive of Structural Timber Association, caught our attention with BIM.
Construction is not the easiest industry to break into for software companies. In comparison to other industries, construction lags even behind agriculture in terms of digitalisation.
Building Information Modelling (BIM) is increasingly becoming a vital process in the construction industry.
At Digital Construction Week 2019, Kreo ran a BIM Workshop: Stop the Blame Game: Fix Pre-Construction Planning.
In 2018, Kreo launched Kreo Design at Digital Construction Week. This year, Kreo will be showcasing new features and products, but the highlight will be something completely different...
Taking off quantities from BIM is not as hard as it used to be. With a plethora of tools out there providing the service, it should be easy.
Since its emergence, digital technology has affected a great number of industries across the globe. While it’s more visible in certain areas, such as agriculture, manufacturing, and retail, it’s the construction industry that’s taking the biggest ...
Digital transformation in housebuilding: threat or opportunity? This was the webinar topic introduced by Magomed Galaev, CEO & founder of Kreo. In the live Q&A with James Dearsley, Co-founder of Unissu, we discussed how we're seeing real estate change ...
At the Chartered Institute of Housing’s Housing Conference – the largest housing festival in Europe – Kreo presented on the trends disrupting the industry. But there were two separate themes that were prevalent throughout the conference.
What to do with the quality of high-rise residential building has been a UK focus ever since the Grenfell tragedy two years ago.
It’s impossible to deny that safety in the workplace is crucial – especially when we imagine harm to oneself or a colleague. Pretty much anyone, whether a construction professional or not, could reel off a list of potential hazards in a construction ...
The RIBA Plan of Work 2013 is an eight-stage building design and construction process for UK professionals.
Building’s fifth annual BIM survey shows that the number of companies taking advantage of BIM is growing. With the number of BIM design tools also on the rise, which of these are leading the way in improving the feasibility study process?
Kreo uses sophisticated machine learning in its cloud-based building information modelling (BIM) software. It is designed to simplify the pre-construction planning and design process for firms within the architectural, engineering & construction (AEC) ...
Leading UK construction consultancy, Cast Consultancy, has signed up to use Kreo's artificial intelligence in pre-construction planning and concept design.
According to a survey Kreo ran with Construction Manager Magazine, quantity takeoff (QTO) is the top process in cost estimation people would like to automate. The survey included quantity surveyors, cost estimators and project managers, among other ...
At Kreo, when we demonstrate what artificial intelligence (AI) can do for pre-construction planning, we sometimes get nervous reactions. “If Kreo can automate building design, bills of quantities, cost estimating and Gantt charts – what’s left for me to ...
Cost estimation is a sensitive subject in the construction industry.
The structural design process is simply a series of stages engineers follow to solve a problem. So shouldn't it be automated?
BIM Show Live is a two-day conference held at the Boiler Shop, Newcastle. In February, 250 attendees discussed the latest technology and processes in the construction industry.
The construction industry makes substantial cost savings and improves the quality of buildings with building information modelling (BIM). How can the real estate industry get value from BIM?
Digital twin is fast becoming a buzzword in the real estate industry. But what does it really mean?
Anonymous BIM case study (January 2019)
Kreo attended the construction industry event BIM Show Live as an exhibitor in February 2019.
As business roles such as Head of Innovation or Digital Transformation increase exponentially, some feel confused about the myriad of technologies now available to us.
Most of the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry now recognises the benefits of Building Information Modelling (BIM).
What is BIM sustainability and what does it mean for your projects and the wider construction industry?
We’ve spoken a few times about the benefits of BIM. The main reason companies are fast adopting BIM (outside of mandates) is the savings you can make on costs and time when you implement BIM. But how exactly does that work?
With new, emergent artificial intelligence finally breaking its way into our industry, some architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) professionals tell us they are concerned about their jobs.
We all agree that BIM is beneficial to the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry. So, if BIM is so great, why aren’t we all adopting this new technology?
Combining the power of BIM with artificial intelligence will help you win more projects and reduce your company's risk of being left behind.
The tendering and contracting process can often be a minefield. It’s full of hurdles and barriers that can often make finding a contractor more difficult than it needs to be.
Imagine a piece of software that could help you design a building from scratch, purely from drawing shapes on a map.
