About CONTAKT GmbH.

Revolutionising, disrupting, thinking outside the box, transforming… These are not simple buzzwords for us – these underline our philosophy. Our mission is to drive digitalisation in the construction sector forwards – and to do so intelligently, along the entire value-added chain. Our goal is nothing less than to revolutionise the construction industry.

To this end, our solutions are designed to help customers use resources sustainably, identify the optimum time for every step and to plan the use of man-power smartly. To achieve this, we need two key elements; transparency and solutions. We want to increase transparency in the construction process with the use of digitalisation. This is why we are developing innovative solutions, that can measure parameters such as progress, quality, time and costs.

Let’s revolutionise the construction sector together.

We can only achieve this goal by pooling knowledge from different domains. This is the concept behind the CONTAKT GmbH team, which is made up of construction management experts, tender managers, construction project and manufacturing specialists, as well as gurus from the fields of sensor technology and artificial intelligence. We also work with industrial partners and software developers who bring their own expertise on board. Together, we are working towards our mission with one overriding goal: change.

However, everyone on a construction site has a vital role to play if we are to bring about change. Project managers, foremen, sub-contractors and builders all have to work as one and be ready to break away from the beaten track. Think differently. Think innovatively. That’s the only way to start a revolution! And that’s the only way to achieve something new, something more sustainable, and something smarter.

A member of Umdasch Group Ventures GmbH.

CONTAKT GmbH was founded on 1 January 2019 and is headquartered in Amstetten, Austria. The company was established independently as part of Umdasch Group Ventures GmbH, an innovation hub and ‘company creator’ specialising in the construction and retail sectors.

Vision & philosophy.

Population growth. Urbanisation. Housing shortages. And all this is accompanied by a lack of productivity in the construction industry. Today’s context is extremely complex. The CONTAKT GmbH team considers this complexity not only as a challenge, but also as an urgent reason to act. We are convinced that there is a way of providing everyone in the world with affordable housing – and we want to play a significant role in this. With our solutions we want to digitalise the construction industry. We want our knowledge to drive the evolution of planning, constructing and commissioning processes forward. We want to drive the revolution of the construction sector. This was what pushed us to develop Sitelife und < CONTAKT build & hub. Designed by experts, for experts. To make construction processes competitive. To avoid idle efforts. To motivate people. To drive innovation forwards. Because the future is well under way.

Courage: The most important tool.

Many people freeze when faced with fear and uncertainty. Construction projects come to a standstill. Dreams collect dust on the shelf. And this is what we actively want to change with our solutions! We motivate companies to take their future into their own hands. Sitelife and CONTAKT build & hub help you make your existing business more profitable, or use the new data to develop innovative business models. Yet through all of this, the core element remains constant: people. At the end of the day, it’s the people on a construction site that lay the foundations and make sure everything is correctly in place. They are the true heroes here, simply helped along with software and solutions. What every hero needs is courage. Only when companies have the courage to venture off the beaten track, welcome new concepts and view digitalisation as an opportunity can we contribute to their success. Only then can performance be quantified. Only then can learning happen. And only then is there a connection between the real and the virtual and between man and buildings.

The foundations for tomorrow’s buildings.

Our vision is to use the collected data from our technologies to fully digitise construction projects, to identify potential and to make errors visible. To this end, we provide companies with a powerful tool – a digital construction site roadmap that helps them determine the best path towards their goal and avoid bottlenecks. And although the choice of production techniques is vast today – in-situ concrete, mobile prefabricated constructions, 3D printing – they all have one thing in common: every project needs a production plan and a solid concept. CONTAKT plays a pivotal role in this because the data we’re collecting today will flow into the foundation of tomorrow’s buildings.

Excellency right from the start.

Just one year after the company was founded, CONTAKT GmbH won the German Innovation Award for Connectivity. The solution’s added value has successfully proved its worth in lead projects by strategic customers. Meanwhile, CONTAKT has been invited to spread the word about their innovative concepts at trade congresses such as the German Lean Construction Conference 2020, the Austrian SolidBIM-Konferenz and the Autodesk University in Las Vegas.

Our partner.

The Sitelife software was developed together with the successful construction consultancy b.i.m.m GmbH.This partnership forms the basis for the development of the innovative Sitelife construction site software. Diese Partnerschaft bildet die Grundlage für die Entwicklung der innovative Baustellensoftware Sitelife.

b.i.m.m GmbH accompanies companies in the conversion from two-dimensional construction plans to a multi-dimensional, digital building model. The team, consisting of master builders, architects, civil engineers and software developers, has more than 25 years of experience in the construction industry – from planning, structural analysis and cost calculation to construction execution and supervision.

The merged expertise of b.i.m.m and CONTAKT combined with in-depth know-how in BIM, software development and lean construction methods are thus bundled in a digital tool.
