It is Build-Apps© mission to promote and drive the movement for data democracy by empowering CRE portfolio owners with solutions that will lead them to data independence.
Our vision is to lead the digitalization of CRE data globally through the provision of innovative CRE solutions.
Build-Apps is a strong believer that building performance data accessibility and independence is essential and as such advises all our clients to centralize their built environment data in a way that is organised and accessible on their own servers. We are a Microsoft Partner and ISV (Independent Service Vendor). Our apps are developed using Microsoft's Power Platform architecture and are deployed directly into the clients Microsoft 365 tenancy.
The Applications reside on the clients existing Microsoft 365 Platform in a deployment style referred to as APaaS (Application for Platform as a solution). This has significant advantages over SaaS offerings, such as genuine data ownership and increased Artificial Intelligence (AI) capability to maximise your enterprise databases.
Our dedicated team of solution architects, software developers and real estate professionals are here to enable seamless onboarding, ongoing support and development.
Founder & CEO
Liam is the founding director of both Build-Apps and Building-Performance.

Playing professional soccer whilst also undertaking his BEng, he developed a unique understanding of teamwork and innovation. Liam's years of frustration with the lack of clarity and ownership by major REITs, Trusts and property portfolio owners of their own building performance data has led him to look for, and create a better outcome.
