LAS VEGAS – February 19, 2019 – Katerra, a technology company redefining the construction industry, has unveiled the Katerra Apollo software platform, designed to support the entire lifecycle of the building process. Apollo manages all critical resources – cost, schedule, teams, and materials – all through one persistent data stream, enabling significant increases in productivity and collaboration.
“Better, faster, cheaper building requires us to support earlier decision making, create faster feedback loops, and drive increased integration from beginning to end, for all teams involved,” stated Michael Marks, chairman and co-founder of Katerra. “Given our model of vertically integrated building, Katerra is uniquely positioned to bring all these elements together in a robust software solution.”
Current AEC software tools predominately focus on solving the challenges of specific trades or distinct phases of the building process. Apollo is a marked departure from this current landscape as an operating platform with a suite of connected applications spanning the full building life cycle. With a platform architecture and open API Integration, Apollo is positioned to continually expand its base application, as well as integrate with tools currently in use by construction firms.
“We are confident that Apollo will deliver the software tools needed to keep up with the new pace of change in our industry,” said Richard Harpham, vice president, Katerra Software Products. “Any firm can benefit from utilizing Apollo, but in particular those well-aligned with Katerra’s mission to optimize building through fabrication and technology-enabled teams.”
The first of the Apollo applications to launch commercially will be Apollo Construct, Katerra’s platform for comprehensive construction management. Apollo Construct supports coordination of cost estimation, schedules, material supply, and workforce management across the entire building supply chain. Additional applications will be available by the end of 2019. Developer, design, and construction organizations in the U.S. interested in testing Apollo software are encouraged to join the Apollo Pioneer Program. For more information, visit: Apollo.katerra.com.
