We are Laminar Projects!

If you have already heard about us, you are probably reading this because you are tired of the typical old fashioned and chaotic ways of doing things in construction. Or maybe you’ve heard that we’re bringing our collective experience together to build the digital backbone of a construction organisation?

But in case you haven’t: we are a Construction Consultancy & Tech Startup Hybrid!  And we’re building a platform called Shape to help change the world!

We help construction projects optimize their project management as a consultancy and then we use our revenues to develop our software products. We do things the Laminar Way, that is, we bring control and clarity to projects by implementing pragmatic solutions using a mix of the latest technology, our own processes, and a big dose of common sense.

Our vision is simple: We exist so that everyone in our team can work in a community that:  

  • Connects us with meaningful relationships   
  • Inspires us to develop ourselves to become better humans   
  • Empowers us to learn new things just for the fun of it  

As a self-funded company, we have time to do things right and have full control over what we do and when. It also means we understand the problems we are solving so we can spend more time focusing on the technology than trying to work out what users want.  

The construction industry is the second least digitized industry. That means the infrastructure that we all rely on is a lot more costly, wasteful, and damaging to the environment than it should be. So, we’re building Shape to fix that!

Our solution has world-class UX and human-centred design. We allow users to solve problems on the ground, while we collect site data. We will then perform advanced analytics using AI (Artificial Intelligence) and Machine Learning to help deliver projects more effectively. With this, we can achieve the highest levels of value for the customer, the industry, and the world.  

But hey, don’t just read about it! Listen to our thoughts here.
