Fexillon, the Dublin-based provider of digital asset management solutions for infrastructure and real estate, is expanding its presence in the UK.
At Digital Construction Week, the firm announced that it is planning to double its UK headcount to more than 20 employees by 2023 and will establish offices in London and Birmingham.
Fexillon works with blue-chip firms in the public and private sectors to provide a more streamlined approach to buildings and property management. According to Fexillon, its “software and value-added services provide a secure environment for managing building information from planning and design stage, construction and handover to operations and maintenance for the building owner and operator”.
The company’s platform enables its clients to make proactive, data-led decisions in real-time.
In addition, the firm revealed it is collaborating with Microsoft in the assessment of a range of solutions, including digital twins, HoloLens technology and BIM integration. The expansion of the relationship means Fexillon will use Microsoft’s Azure cloud computing platform to support interactive digital replicas of Microsoft’s built infrastructure, allowing for the real-time management of assets and leading to greater operational efficiencies.
Fexillon was founded 22 years ago by George Harold and Kieran Beggan. It was known as Integrated Facilities Solutions until being renamed as Fexillon in December last year. The company’s ambition is to become Europe’s largest provider of digital asset management solutions.
“Over 22 years we have built a strong reputation for quality and innovation,” said Beggan. “Our solutions offer peace of mind for blue-chip firms in the public and private sector, providing a more streamlined approach to buildings and property management. These markets will accelerate at pace as the pandemic eases and remote management capability expands under Industry 4.0 and includes process automation, IOT and robotics.
“Our expansion into the UK will ensure Fexillon is well positioned to support mission-critical building owners with regional and global footprints and can provide a secure environment for managing building information, from planning and design stage, construction and handover to operations and maintenance for the building owner and operator.”
Harold added: “Fexillon is now poised to become a significant player in Europe with our new UK base and the expansion of our international team. Launching in the UK marks a strategic pivot in our future direction and on-going development of the company, and we believe that the potential to unlock further opportunities in the UK and European markets are huge.”
