Innovo spearheads technological revolution



Innovo Group is on a mission to become one of the world’s most innovative and responsible developers. Smart, rapidly evolving technology is the key to achieving those goals. According to Innovo CEO Bishoy Azmy, “The Built environment creates over 40% of the globe’s carbon footprint. Innovative technology is advancing so fast, especially Artificial Intelligence (AI), that it has become the quickest and surest way to create productive, safe, and sustainable outcomes.” With this global mandate, all Innovo businesses are enthusiastically embracing technology. And Innovo Egypt is at the forefront of this technology revolution.

We collaborate closely with global venture capital companies, embassies, and our customers to uncover the latest technologies and integrate them into every aspect of our projects. According to Roger Wahl, Innovo’s Chief Technology Officer, “We are leaving no stone unturned in our search for the most innovative technologies that help us decarbonize, improve efficiency, and increase safety across the entire Built lifecycle. We assess thousands of tech startups each year, shortlisting and implementing those that create the biggest impact.”

When leveraged properly, technologies build upon each other to achieve optimal outcomes. Advancements in Quantum Computing hardware, AI intuitive software, 5G communications, the Internet of Things (IoT), and sensors to process the information at the endpoints have resulted in unprecedented capabilities.

During a typical project lifecycle, we leverage multiple state-of-the-art technologies to improve outcomes. AI reduces design cycle time and creates optimal results. 3D Building Information Modelling (BIM) creates a virtual picture of the asset down to the smallest level of detail. While building, Digital Twin captures the build reality via Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) scans, comparing the actual build to the BIM design, which enables us to eliminate defects before they occur. Digital Twin also passes crucial asset information to the maintainers like expected wear-and-tear, predictive maintenance schedules, and optimal environmental factors resulting in increased quality of life for residents.

To ensure sustainability is at the center of all our projects, we are creating a platform that integrates a sophisticated array of leading technologies to meticulously track and analyze every facet of our carbon footprint. Utilizing AI algorithms, IoT sensors, and the high-speed connectivity of 5G, we monitor the entirety of our supply chain, construction processes, crane operations, personnel commuting, generator usage, and energy consumption. This comprehensive approach enables us to gather real-time data, identify areas of inefficiency, and implement targeted strategies for minimizing our environmental impact at every stage of project development. Following COP 28, global governments are imposing stricter, and quicker, carbon controls. Technology is the path to compliance.

For Innovo Build Egypt innovative technology will be the key to creating the best possible outcomes. According to Mohamad Gamal, Managing Director of Innovo Egypt, “Emerging and innovative technologies are enabling us to successfully navigate challenging economic times by adding certainty and continuous improvement to the project lifecycle. We are 100% confident that we will exceed customer expectations.”

Innovo is leading the way by leveraging new, smart technologies wherever possible. We are confident that our customers, employees, and communities will reap the benefits for years to come.
