Construction companies across Southeast Asia have a growing appetite for digital construction solutions. To meet the construction boom across the region, they will need to shift from the point solutions and office software packages they have been reliant on, to an integrated platform solution that can deliver project visibility, efficiency and business intelligence.
Several national codes specify the use of Building Information Modelling (BIM) software on certain projects, fuelling a high BIM adoption rate across the region. Singapore’s Building and Construction Authority (BCA) introduced Integrated Digital Delivery (IDD) promoting the use of digital technologies and created the Productivity Solutions Grant to offset the cost of adopting pre-approved digital solutions. Collectively, these initiatives have encouraged construction firms to update their tech stacks and transition to true platform capabilities.
Procore recently announced its expansion into ASEAN, establishing a direct team in Singapore and working closely with established partners like CS Global to help clients on that digital journey. Procore’s aim is to help the industry lift its technological maturity, with a platform approach that addresses specific regional needs. Organisations including Obayashi Corporation, Kajima, Sime Darby Property, JVACC and Makati Development Corporation have already signed on with Procore.
