We firmly believe that building performance data accessibility and independence is essential and as such advise 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.
Our team works closely with our sister company Building-Performance to create and evolve the Build-Apps suite of tools to meet the needs and demands of an ever-changing digital environment. We are also here to assist our clients both in the implementation and operational use of our apps through further customization and ongoing technical support.
Working closely with our existing clients, many of whom manage billion and even trillion-dollar real estate investment trust or portfolio funds, we are constantly innovating to help maximize the performance data of buildings via the much under utilized power of Microsoft 365.
The Microsoft Power Platform enables a unilateral data and security exchange within a single Microsoft 365 license and environment. This puts the data control and integrity in the hands of the property owners. Using Power BI for analytics and business intelligence helps unlock a plethora of insights which allow key business details to made with full knowledge of the building performance capacity now and in the future.
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.
