Ireland-based building tech firm, Fexillon, has formed a strategic partnership with JE Dunn Construction, one of the largest construction companies in the US.
In what is the firm’s first foray into the US market, Fexillon will apply its building information and asset management solutions on up to 10 of JE Dunn’s mission critical sites, worth over $3 billion in construction value.
This will enable JE Dunn to create a golden thread of information from construction right the way through to operations management and handover.
Fexillon CEO, Kieran Beggan (pictured left), commented: “Today’s announcement marks the next step in our future direction and the ongoing development of Fexillon in North America.
“Being appointed as a strategic partner to JE Dunn’s build programme underlines our commitment to working together to radically change the construction industry and built environment for the benefit of customers, the occupier and the environment.”
“Fexillon’s pipeline of work is set for exponential growth and reinforces our conviction around the significant future opportunities for the company in the US.”
Founded 22 years ago by George Harold (pictured right) and Kieran Beggan, the company aims to become Europe’s largest provider of digital asset management solutions as the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry becomes increasingly digitised.
Chris Teddy, Vice President at JE Dunn Construction (pictured centre), said: “Fexillon has decades of experience in the digital construction field and the reliability of their team, coupled with its streamlined approach, platform, and expansion capabilities, make them a perfect choice to partner with across our mission-critical sites throughout the US.”
Fexillon’s platform is already in use across several sectors including construction, energy, healthcare, and critical infrastructure throughout Ireland and the UK.
It is a current collaborator of Microsoft which sees Fexillon utilise Microsoft’s Azure cloud computing platform to support bespoke, detailed, and interactive digital replicas of Microsoft’s built infrastructure.
