The future of construction is rapidly taking shape. 

We live in a world where construction outcomes are rarely predictable, construction capacity cannot keep up with exponentially increasing demands. This requires a new way of building. An estimated 70% of projects miss on schedule and budget, creating trillions of dollars in impact.

77%

$31.3 billion

of megaprojects around the globe are 40% or more behind schedule.

About KatalystDI
