Demographic change, increasing sustainability requirements and changing customer needs are constantly presenting real estate companies and construction firms with new challenges. With its long-lasting and discrete assets, the real estate and construction sector in particular must consider the entire life cycle of properties in order to react effectively to increasing demands.
The optimal use of integrated information and communication systems, and the consistent use of data, open up enormous potential in the real estate and construction sector. Here are just a few of the promising and ground-breaking areas in which Eraneos provides support: digital twins, digital construction sites with building information modeling (BIM) and comprehensive supply chain management (SCM), corporate real estate management (CREM) and digital building platform (DBP).
How are real estate and construction companies creating potential through the digital transformation? Real estate and construction companies require multi-layered digital technologies in the life cycle of a property. Exploiting the digital potential that is available takes more than the cooperation of a property’s entire ecosystem. Efficiency, resilience and readiness for innovation are also required from the individual players.
Everyone from investors, owners and planners to general contractors and managers must clearly define the sustainable, strategic focus of their own contribution to the value chain. They ensure the future viability of their company through cultural change and proactive innovation management so that it can implement optimized processes by means of consistent digital strategies.
We support and advise real estate firms in developing their digital strategies and leveraging data to optimize processes and meet customer needs.
The digital modeling of real estate as part of a digital twin lays the foundation for its cross-phase and cross-company optimization and use. The digital twin can be used in sales, development (including by means of building information modeling as a basis for the digital construction site), all the way to management and re-use. This is achieved by providing, linking and using all possible data sources.
An integrated data management system is needed to incorporate all technical and organizational elements. Based on this, data analysis methods (data analytics) generate specific added value.
Building automation, control technology and IoT solutions enable the efficient and optimized operation of properties. They provide companies with real-time data as a basis for asset management as well as for ESG reporting to optimize sustainability. The convergence of control technology, IoT and the cloud also opens up new opportunities for real estate and construction companies.
Real estate and construction companies are being forced to ask themselves the following questions: “How do we become more sustainable? How can we invest sustainably and also measure the effectiveness of our investment?” Real-time data from the IoT, control technology or building automation combined with other data sources such as asset management or core systems create transparency and a sound basis for decision-making.
CREM guarantees the efficient use of resources in terms of sustainability and the optimization of operational expenditure. When it comes to operational real estate management, it is crucial to closely monitor shifts in the different fields of investment. Areas such as computer-aided facility management (CAFM), big data, data analytics (digital skills) and direct customer contact will become even more important in the future.
Complex infrastructures, such as data centers, must be actively managed. Due to the high business relevance of this infrastructure for companies, a high level of competence is required, from strategy and design to implementation, migration, operation and optimization.
Our strong combination of industry-specific know-how and technological understanding has empowered multiple customers in the Real Estate space.
