KOREC Group Announces £650k Investment In Partnership with Trimble to Establish BuildingPoint UK & Ireland

KOREC Group has announced that it is expanding its operations with the launch of BuildingPoint UK and Ireland as it becomes the newest partner to join Trimble’s BuildingPoint distribution network.

Through this new Trimble partnership, those that work within the construction industry, can now access a full Trimble digital construction portfolio of hardware and software, backed up by regional experts.

Developing Expertise Within Construction Technology

This will be delivered through a BuildingPoint team dedicated to bringing tried and tested workflows to the UK and Irish markets. These workflows have been developed to deliver increased productivity, schedule adherence and cost discipline through tighter coordination, improved project transparency and collaboration.

The £650k investment will be used to hire 10 new personnel and develop sales, with KOREC planning to expand the team to 25 new roles over the next three years.

This dedicated and experienced team will be looked after by Sam Hough (UK) and Kevin Colwell (Ireland) whilst a new BuildingPoint construction-focused website for the UK and Ireland has also been launched.

The offering will also include assistance with the adoption of digital workflows through a range of task-specific software and hardware solutions, from general setting-out tools to augmented and mixed reality technology, and robotics.

Alan Browne, Group Chief Executive of KOREC and EY Entrepreneur Of The Year Finalist 2022 said: “Over 70% of UK and Ireland construction projects run over time and over budget due to a number of factors including rework, barriers to stakeholder collaboration and challenges to onsite efficiency and productivity. 

The creation of BuildingPoint UK and Ireland is the next phase in our journey alongside Trimble, to help our partners in building construction to operate more safely, more quickly and more accurately whilst reducing costs and the impact on the environment”.

A Trusted Partnership

Since 2019, the Trimble construction side of KOREC’s offering has been operating as KOREC Construction, until September 2022, when BuildingPoint UK & Ireland joined the global BuildingPoint family.

This network brings the full range of Trimble Buildings’ solutions to their respective markets – with solutions designed to improve productivity, schedule adherence and cost discipline through tighter coordination, improve project transparency and collaboration.

KOREC Group is an established Trimble Geospatial Distributor and has been one of the largest and most successful in the world for over 25 years. The company has been active in the construction market since its inception in the 1960s.
