“We closed our pre-seed investment round, forged several key local and international partnerships, and introduced our cloud-based construction project management solution, encompassing several key modules including construction, labor force, inventory, and cost management modules. With our solution, we aim to address the prevalent challenges of budget and deadline overruns within the global construction sector—an issue that carries an annual cost exceeding $1.8 trillion,” Alsubaiey said.

Elaborating on the total value of projects, which amounted to over QR100m, he said “We were excited to see projects begin to utilize and benefit from our solution, addressing bottlenecks and streamlining communication and operations with all project stakeholders, all on one centralized platform. Amongst our strategic partnerships was the Lean Construction Management Institute, focused on bringing the best lean management practices and sustainability management practices into our platform”
