KOREC Group is delighted to announce that it is expanding its operations with the launch of BuildingPoint UK and Ireland as it becomes the newest partner to join Trimble’s BuildingPoint distribution network.
KOREC Group is an existing, established Trimble distribution geospatial partner with over 50 years of experience working with the construction industry. The addition of the BuildingPoint distributorship to its already extensive geospatial portfolio underlines KOREC’s commitment to expansion which saw the company announce 30 new positions across the company at the beginning of the year.
Over 70% of UK and Ireland construction projects run over time and over budget due to a number of factors including rework, barriers to stakeholder collaboration and challenges to onsite efficiency and productivity. Through this new Trimble partnership, those that work within the construction industry, including users of Trimble Tekla, Viewpoint and MEP software, can now access a full Trimble digital construction portfolio backed up by regional expertise .
This will be delivered through a BuildingPoint team dedicated to bringing tried and tested workflows to the UK and Irish markets. These workflows have been developed to deliver increased productivity, schedule adherence and cost discipline through tighter coordination, improved project transparency and collaboration.
The offering will include assistance with the adoption of digital workflows through a range of task specific software and hardware solutions from general setting out tools to Augmented and Mixed Reality technology and Robotics.
Alan Browne, Group Chief Executive of KOREC and EY Entrepreneur of the Year Finalist 2022 said:
“The creation of BuildingPoint UK and Ireland is the next phase on our journey along with Trimble of helping our partners in Building Construction operate more safely, more quickly and more accurately whilst reducing costs and the impact on the environment”
This dedicated and experienced team will be looked after by Sam Hough (UK) and Kevin Colwell (Ireland) whilst a new BuildingPoint construction focused website for the UK and Ireland has been launched at http://buildingpointukandireland.com.
The dates and locations of regional BuildingPoint launch events will be announced shortly.
