Steiner AG enters into strategic partnership with HEGIAS

Steiner AG is entering into a strategic partnership with the digital technology start-up HEGIAS and is thus assuming a leading role in the digitalisation of the real estate sector. The Steiner Digital platform encompasses solutions spanning the entire life cycle of a property – from land acquisition, through development, planning and construction and right up to property management. 
HEGIAS, a dynamic start-up company, offers the world’s first automated and browser-based solution for visualisation and communication for the planning, construction and real estate sector using virtual reality (VR). Founded in 2017, the fast-growing company now employs about 20 people at its offices in Zurich and Lugano. “Now that we have Steiner AG at our side, we have a strong partner that will help us achieve our growth ambitions”, says a delighted Patrik Marty, CEO of HEGIAS.
Arjun Dhawan, Delegate of the Board of Directors of Steiner Group, is highly positive about the future collaboration and adds: “This strategic investment has the potential to revolutionise our industry and brings immediate benefit to our construction and development capabilities.”
Ajay Sirohi, CEO of Steiner and Giuseppe Giglio, Chief Digital Officer, are convinced that the cooperation will contribute to the long-term success of both companies: “The combination of HEGIAS’ digital expertise and our proven track record in the BIM and construction fields enable us to jointly design precisely tailored innovations for the market. This first strategic partnership in the digital field means that we can expand our competencies in this area and actively shape the future of the real estate industry. For the future, we are planning further collaborations with innovative start-ups so that we can pursue the digital transformation of our company and ensure our long-term advancement in the field of future technologies.”

The new Steiner virtual collaboration environment will enable everyone involved in a project to work on the same model at the same time and regardless of their location. This simplifies and speeds up existing procedures, thus also helping substantially to avoid errors.

In 2020 the Swiss digital technology start-up HEGIAS launched HEGIAS VR, the world's first automated, cloud-/browser-based solution in the real estate sector for visualisation and communication in the real estate sector using virtual reality. Using drag n’ drop in an internet browser, highly detailed 3D plans that simplify and accelerate the digital planning process can be uploaded by several users simultaneously at any stage in the planning and construction process, regardless of the users’ location. They can then “walk” through the properties virtually, materialise them and fit them out – with or without using a VR headset  Thus HEGIAS VR helps to avoid possible misunderstandings and supports the whole planning, sales and rental process. www.hegias.com
