SBI was founded by Dr. Calvin Kam in 2011 with a vision to optimize the value of the global built environment through continuous improvement in evidence-based business decision-making, performance metrics, best practice processes, sustainability, and appropriate technologies. The global practice now provides research, education, programs, and guidance to several government organizations – roadmaps and mentoring for large property developers and owners – and value-enhancing support to facility design, construction, and management teams. The firm also produces web-delivered software to assess effective use of technologies such as Building Information Modeling (BIM). Our teams work seamlessly between corporate offices in Palo Alto, Hong Kong, and Singapore, our newly-merged organization in the Amsterdam, and teammates distributed in the US, UK, India, Sri Lanka, and more generally in Asia, North and South America, Europe, and Australasia. We espouse the World Village concept in concept and in action. SBI was driven to develop this suite of tools because they could not find an effective tool already available in the market place to facilitate a global organization in managing meetings and actions.
