Our Company

It is Build-Apps© mission to promote and drive the movement for data democracy by empowering CRE portfolio owners with solutions that will lead them to data independence.

Our vision is to lead the digitalization of CRE data globally through the provision of innovative CRE solutions.


Build-Apps is a strong believer that building performance data accessibility and independence is essential and as such advises all our clients to centralize their built environment data in a way that is organised and accessible on their own servers. For too long, SaaS (Software as a Service) has led to the operational data of buildings being stored on external, fragmented and inaccessible platforms making portfolio owners reliant on service contractors to manage their data for them.


Build-Apps is uniquely placed to provide application solutions for the built environment within the 365 Microsoft environment. Our dedicated team of solution architects, software developers and real estate professionals are here to enable on-boarding of specific building performance data of your property portfolio for you.

Liam Murray

Founder & CEO

Liam is the founding director of both Build-Apps and Building-Performance. His insight into real estate operation and in particular the sustainable optimisation of building assets, combined with Liam's IT capabilities, led to a natural desire to code and develop his own built environment apps. Playing professional soccer whilst also undertaking his BEng, he developed a unique understanding of teamwork and innovation. Liam's years of frustration with the lack of clarity and ownership by major REITs, Trusts and property portfolio owners of their own building performance data has led him to look for, and create a better outcome.
