A New Product for End-to-End Construction
With new innovations in construction emerging almost every day, Katerra, katerra.com, is looking to stand above them all with the announcement of its new end-to-end design and construction platform.
For the past several years, Katerra has delivered solutions that have been answering the call to urbanization and rising populations to streamline better processes for homebuilding and residential facilities. Yet, the technology is prime for the commercial market as well.
Taking a page out of electronics and automobile manufacturing, Katerra is combining the scaled systems approaches used by those industries and combining them with its own models in technology, design, material sourcing, manufacturing, logistics, and construction. The result is an integrated design and construction platform that meets the demands of projects faster. Along with speed, comes lower costs and less waste from the jobsite.
The technology also connects ERP (enterprise-resource planning) supply chains with BIM (building information modeling) tools and computational design, making it even easier for contractors and project managers to order materials and track deliveries. Ready-to-install shipments to the jobsite draw further influence from manufacturing, as the fast-paced process resembles that of precision product assembly seen on the factory floor.
