Buildings and infrastructures, however big or small, face one major challenge—standing the test of time. As these brick and mortar structures withstand the vagaries of nature, climate, and age, they also succumb to ‘birth defects’ of design and construction, which quite often, decides the longevity of assets. “If you look at most of the buildings and infrastructures that fall or require reconstruction, one significant predicament that baffles engineers is the birth defects that emerge as flaws during the lifecycle of these assets. Most of the incidents reported in history where buildings or bridges or mega-structures collapse lead up to such defects,” begins Marcel Poser, co-founder of TectusDreamlab. “At our company, we specialize in reducing such hindrances through timely inspections. Our solutions allow one to inspect and examine an infrastructure or asset in an efficient and sophisticated manner.”
TectusDreamlab is built on the idea of “Perception is Everything,” allowing industry leaders to perceive the problems that affect the durability of their infrastructure. Poser views his company’s approach to diagnosing the infrastructural hindrances similar to a patient visiting a physician. “Depending on the health condition of the patient, the doctor would suggest suitable remedies, medication, scans or other forms of diagnosis. At TectusDreamlab, we have essentially put together a suite of technologies that enables structural engineers to look inside structures and identify weak spots, ageing conditions, or wear and tear, in addition to a software that automates or digitizes the workflows of inspection,” he adds.

Thriving across seven crucial market segments ranging from engineering and construction, Internet of Things (IoT), digital health, real estate, advisory and investments, and finally, entertainment and lifestyle, TectusDreamlab has re-engineered the methodology of infrastructure inspection through its portfolio of solutions and services. It creates intelligent workflows, combining a startup culture with 75 years of industry experience to craft solutions that fall in line with the trends of the digital era. Such a steady foundation has been the driving force behind the company’s success in building a vast clientele across various geographies. One of these clients, a Singapore construction and engineering firm, needed software-defined workflows to inspect a newly developed project for 200-300 condos. TectusDreamlab helped the client map paper-based inspection and handover processes into an intuitive app solution, allowing the client to coordinate with subcontractors, inspection teams, and field service operators. The solution enables the client to move away from traditional manual workflows into automated reporting and sharing module. “The client was pleased with the outcomes of our solution and has approached us for yet another project that revolves around inspection and defect analysis and management,” elaborates Poser. TectusDreamlab has carried similar projects with more significant complexities involving radars and ultrasound devices, interconnected to its suite of software to bring in the much-needed coherence with the construction workflows. Clients have started targeted inspection businesses in Europe that identify weak spots emerging from corrosion and similar ageing factors, based on TectusDreamlab’s suite of solutions, showcasing the merits of the construction pioneer in an exhaustive manner.
