3rd KEKO challenge competition is launched with Combient Foundry

Now we focus on the usage of data gathered during the planning and construction phases. A lot of data is already gathered from construction sites but currently, this data is underutilized. Founders submit your solution by 22nd of October!

Opportunity overview

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 holistic platform approach, we already collect material and process data during building construction. Now it’s your time to take the construction data into use and propose novel business models for example in new data-driven construction process analysis, safety improvements, and utilizing the construction data in later life cycle phases such as maintenance and renovation.

We invite the best talent to create and co-develop solutions for all building stakeholders with the help of our unmatched resources and know-how. If you work on data-driven solutions that can drive the change in how buildings are constructed and managed, keep reading!

Case description

The KEKO consortium partners operate at every level of the building life-cycle. Our cross-industry approach allows us to bring together domain expertise and data for example from building construction, material and people flow, energy consumption, building usage, and indoor positioning into our unique, purpose-built API.

Now we focus on the usage of data gathered during the planning and construction phases. A lot of data is already gathered from construction sites but currently, this data is underutilized. In addition, a lot of valuable data is lost between the building life cycle phase changes, for example when moving from the building construction to the operation phase. 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. The consortium partners for instance track the material and people flow, and the associated environmental data to document how and when the building was built.
