Dev Amratia is the CEO and Co-Founder of nPlan, a company that uses machine learning to analyse construction schedules, determine where the biggest risks lie, and then recommend improvements.

Whether it’s a new stadium or transport system, construction projects are consistently delayed, and nPlan is committed to solving this problem by using all available data on these projects to optimise planning schedules.

Dev has worked for the UK Government, where he led the national review on AI and was previously a project manager with Shell where he saw first hand how challenges in scheduling can make or break construction projects.
