BKwai leverages data to improve the safety and resilience of the built environment. Collapses of bridges, dams, tunnels and other key services highlight the importance of monitoring structural health, whilst new construction projects must keep sites safe and prevent damage to surroundings. Taking data from sensors, satellites and environmental datasets, we combine data science with structural engineering expertise to develop algorithms that keep infrastructure safe.

Smart Infrastructure is a global opportunity worth up to £4.8T, and we have selected three major infrastructure projects to work with to develop our product, with further companies on the waitlist.

Sakthy Selvakumaran is an award-winning Chartered Civil Engineer with a decade of international experience in the design, construction and maintenance of built infrastructure.
