founded in 2011 by Karen Kam, our operational and financial leader, and inspired by Dr. Calvin Kam, international thought leader and industry ambassador
We have 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, management consulting, 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 assesses effective use of technologies such as Building Information Modeling (BIM) for projects, teams, organizations, and economies worldwide.
Our teams work seamlessly between corporate offices in Palo Alto, Hong Kong, and Singapore, our newly-merged organization in Amsterdam, and teammates distributed more generally in Asia, the Americas, and Europe. We espouse a World Village approach in concept and in action.
