On Property Matters this week, hosts Carol Tallon and Bryan Fox are joined in studio by Dr. Houssem Jerbi, CEO of Smart PMO, and Padraig Neylon, CEO of +AddJust to talk about how Artificial Intelligence (AI) can de-risk/improve performances across the construction industry and the importance of smart contracts to digitise workflows within construction projects.
First up on the show, we discussed a 7,500 word article published by The Currency giving a full overview of Ireland’s proptech sector:
Virtual realty: Can property technology provide fixes for Ireland’s broken housing market? | The Currency
“Proptech thrives when the property industry fails … smart planning, smart asset management, smart transaction, smart design, smart build, and smart city….”
Our first guest in studio this week was Dr. Houssem Jerbi. As founder and CEO of SmartPMO, Houssem discusses Irish construction industry problems and synergies with the housing crisis. The discussion moves on to talk about how Artificial Intelligence, or AI, can help address many of the problems by de-risking projects, saving costs and eliminating delays. “Project overruns are not inevitable” according to Houssem. He also spoke about the Irish Construction Data 2020 project, what exactly this project is and how it will contribute to the improvement of the Irish construction sector.
Our second guest this week was Padraig Neylon, CEO and co-founder of +Addjust. Padraig begins his interview by explaining the importance of contracts and robust financial management in construction and infrastructure projects. He explains the benefit of digitising the workflows of the industry and goes through some recent projects. He closes out his interview by giving Carol and Bryan a run through of the future role of collaborative technology in the construction industry.
