Bureau Veritas creates a new digital platform for the real estate market called Building in One


Building in One will enable stakeholders in the real estate business to stock, exchange and structure data and documents related to the life of a building. Increased market complexity and the large amount of data and number of documents required for any transaction is changing the way real estate data is now being handled.

This new digital platform has been co-created with a number of real estate professionals, including BNP Paribas Real Estate Property Management, Nexity Property Management, GE Capital Real Estate and AEW Europe. Our partners all agree that there was a need to create a common system, accessible by all real estate professionals, to file and share quality information. Experts have  reported wasting 40% of their time looking for lost documents and incurring increased costs to carry out repeated surveys in order to file the necessary documents that any real estate operation requires.

"The future platform is a result of a new approach we are adopting to co-create services jointly with our customers", informs Philippe Lanternier, Executive Vice President for Corporate Development, Bureau Veritas. "This new innovative service will help our customers save time, reduce costs, improve cash flow and most importantly carry out their business confident that the data being transmitted is up to date and exact", he continues.


Building in One


This common tool that will be shared by all the profession, will enable all building information to be classified with a single entry for professionals to access up to date information. Other benefits of the tool include safe long-term document storage, multi-user access and geolocalisation of the data. The management of assets in operation will be largely facilitated by these extensive features.

Bureau Veritas has worked closely with gPartner/Devoteam, one of Google’s partners for the development of applications using Google for Work tools, to develop this new platform. Google for Work tools, such as Drive for Work, Maps for Work and Cloud platform will ensure that the platform is fast, secure and responsive.

Bureau Veritas is particularly well positioned to create this service because of their knowledge of the real estate industry, their wide international network, and their neutral position in any real estate transaction.

The application’s prototype has been created with 4 partners, BNP Paribas Real Estate Property Management, Nexity Property Management, GE Capital Real Estate and AEW Europe. The application is due to be marketed in March 2015 and deployed throughout Europe and the United States.
