Innovation in traditional sectors has been a recurring theme in recent years. Many companies have been able to apply the technology in industries considered less open to change with great success. This is the case of Checktobuild, a startup in Malaga that has managed to enter the construction market and revolutionize the way projects are carried out. Since its foundation, Checktobuild’s main objective has been to optimize operations and improve productivity in the sector. To achieve this, they have created a software platform that integrates “deep technology” solutions and specializes in preventive detection of build faults. “We focus on making life easier for those responsible for construction, from ‘reality capture’ to management, visualization and analysis of architectural models (BIM) and 3D models of reality (pull point), explain CEO and co-founder Alejandro Ruiz Lara. The startup offers a solution Unique to the market, its technology allows automation of alignment and comparison processes between BIM models and point-drawing.With the platform, it is possible to complete tasks “five to nine times faster,” which translates into an increase in productivity “up to 87%,” says the president.

This means lower pollution rates and lower resource costs. Regarding the environment, it is possible to avoid the emission of up to 821 tons of carbon dioxide per project. From an economic point of view, savings of up to 300,000 euros are possible. Despite the complex solution they created, Ruiz Lara asserts that the biggest challenge “was the technological leap assumed by the sector”. As in any other sector, there is a refusal to change, and although there are many examples from other industries that attest to the benefits of digitalization, “in construction there is a particular reluctance.” “We offer a solution that is appropriate for its time, but ahead of the industry,” says the CEO. To deal with reluctance, the startup offers a “first look and use of our technology without commitment,” as well as a communication strategy focused on creating educationally valuable content. To this day, the company has set its sights on the American market. “We first focused on serving the country where the balance between growth in new construction and technology application is most prominent, more specifically in Florida, the fastest growing state in terms of construction and real estate in the United States,” he says. Ruiz Lara. The startup has also managed to establish interest in business accelerators in East Asia, becoming one of the IoT Tribe Singapore accelerators. In addition, they have worked on a pilot project with Japan’s largest general contracting company, Kajima Corporation. The project also reached the finals of the Entrepreneurship World Cup, which was held recently in Riyadh.
