Episode details

In this episode of the Beyond Buildings Podcast, we talk to Karel Bietje from the construction company Taimana Modular in New Zealand. And with us is also the connectivity Guru, Anthony Veri Jr.

This is an interesting episode that took place just before COVID19 started for real, and New Zealand shut down. A lot has happened since but it offers an insight into how a real change-maker thinks and operates in the construction industry.

  • Karel talks about an outdated industry with giants that monopolize the market.

  • On why projects run late and over budget

  • Change requests during the operating phase

  • And the overall need to modernize everything and putting sustainability first.

We talk about the need for lifecycle doing, not just thinking, doing more with less, and how to think about buildings as software-enabled entities.

What do you think? Will construction also be run by software companies that happen to do construction?

Listen in and hear what the world was like Pre-COVID and what a true future-doer thinks about the industry!
