We are building the global standard for smart building platforms

Creating a safer, more fluent and more productive built environment is an enormous business opportunity. However, no company can make the most of the opportunity alone.

That’s why the KEKO ecosystem brings together leading Finnish companies from among others the connectivity, people flow, construction and building technology industries. This new way of working together beyond corporate borders enables us to solve problems faster and create unprecedented solutions.

Traditionally, buildings are closed systems that are monitored separately and decision making for building is based on investment costs, not life cycle costs. But in future, this will change. Close cooperation with different service provides will bring new value to all real estate stakeholders. We believe in the value of KEKO community – for innovations and more complex & smarter solutions.
