Gravicon applied for the construction data opportunity for KEKO in October 2020.
After reviewing 90+ startup submissions, the KEKO team has chosen Gravicon as one of the five final startups they would like to directly engage with to evaluate a mutually beneficial long-term commercial partnership in November 2020. Now Selected teams will work with the company decision makers in remote workshops in December 2020 to scope a scalable pilot project. The goal of KEKO is test the most interesting and scalable solutions through a pilot project in 2021.
Manuel Furlotti, the Senior Manager responsible for international sales and partnerships in Gravicon, describes the opportunity to be perfect match for a company like Gravicon.
- In this opportunity, together with the consortium partners KONE, Nokia, YIT, Caverion, Halton, VTT and Netox, we dive deep into the construction phase of buildings. Thanks to our data-driven approach, we collect initial data and requirement information during early stage of the planning phase of the building project, Manuel describes.
KEKO focuses on the usage of data gathered during the planning and construction phases. KEKO bridges the life cycle gaps by providing a platform that lives with the building throughout the whole life cycle. During planning and construction, we collect and store data on the KEKO platform and make it easily available.
- This is an extremely important and interesting opportunity for Gravicon to talk and introduce Modelspace to the bright minds of Nokia, Kone, YIT, Caverion, Halton, VTT, and Netox. Gravicon with Modelspace could help to solve critical business cases by focusing on the early stage of the design project by helping collecting initial data and managing information requirements for the spaces in the facility, says Manuel.
