Urbanization and demographic change lead to a very high demand for affordable housing and infrastructure. Construction productivity has trailed that of other manufacturing industries. The potentials for new technologies in construction are unlimited: industrialization, automation, standardization and digitization will be key.
There is no sector that is that intensively influenced by megatrends than retail. Social trends like "Attention Economy" or "Individualization" as well as all technological trends around digization drive a fundamental transformation process within the retail sector.
Since 2017 Umdasch Group Ventures is involved in the disruptive innovation of 3D construction scale printing.
We hold a 30% stake in Contour Crafting Corporation located in Los Angeles. It is the technological pioneer in 3D construction scale printing. Contour Crafting stands for a revolutionary construction method, where a house shell up to 200 sqm. is printed in 24 to 48 hours.
Our answer: Neulandt 3P is our mobile field factory for the production of precast segments for affordable housing.
Internet of things, big data, artificial intelligence and BIM – the spectrum and potential of digital technologies to improve productivity and quality in construction processes is huge.
We are currently preparing the launch of the digital construction platform "Contakt". It makes the entire construction processes intelligent, from which all construction players benefit. The platform manages sites and delivers data insights to identify the best practices of construction processes, reducing costs and time sustainably.
You can develop news solutions and bring them to the market. Or you can join one of our newly founded operational subsidiaries. The career perspectives are great and endless.
