Nomination for the Digital Top 10 Award 2023

Automation through AI could become one of the technologies that permanently changes the construction and real estate industry. The optimised planning and implementation of construction projects and the associated simulation of various situations in real time is proving to be a valuable and efficient tool. With this focus, an expert jury nominated several innovations from the fields of planning, design and urban development for the Digital Top10 Award 2023.

Gruner was selected as a finalist for this award 2023 with its innovation Early Stage Design. Public voting will take place until 3 February 2023. Afterwards, the best three projects will be presented and awarded on 7 March 2023 in Zurich as part of the Digital Real Estate Summit.

Early Stage Design is an innovative service that provides investors and developers with a higher-quality basis for decision-making at an early stage in real estate and project development. The Gruner team brings in know-how, offers professional support and ensures more sustainable decisions with feasibility studies. This improves communication with stakeholders and reduces time and development costs. Thanks to the optimisation of the variables investment, profit, return, grey energy, energy consumption, solar & PV potential and CO2 emissions, KO criteria can be identified at an early stage and holistic solution variants identified.

The service includes multidisciplinary co-creation on the digital model, integrated engineering analytics, visualisations and real-time reporting of all relevant data for decision-making. The specialists from the areas of structural engineering & civil engineering, building services design, sustainability, cost planning, building physics & acoustics as well as fire safety accompany the co-creation and enable a targeted, transparent and comprehensible real estate and project development of individual plots and entire areas.

With Early Stage Design, Gruner picks up on the current developments and trends in the real estate industry and thus establishes itself as a pioneer. This innovation is constantly being developed further, with environmental social governance also playing an important role in the future and, in particular, incorporating sustainability considerations into the project with the necessary importance.
