  • Company to make substantial investment in expansion across the United Kingdom
  • Announces collaboration with Microsoft on deployment of Digital Twins and HoloLens technology

Fexillon plans to double its headcount by the end of the year and is collaborating with Microsoft to develop a range of digital services.

Fexillon, the Ireland-based leading provider of digital asset management solutions for infrastructure and real estate, has today announced it is to make additional investments in the UK as part of its European growth strategy. The rapidly growing technology firm is planning to double its UK headcount to over 20 employees by 2023 and will establish offices in London and Birmingham.

Fexillon works with blue-chip firms in the public and private sectors to provide a more streamlined approach to buildings and property management. Its software and value-added services provide a secure environment for managing building information from planning and design stage, construction and handover to operations and maintenance for the building owner and operator. The company’s platform enables its clients to make proactive, data-led decisions in real time, which allows them to make better, more collaborative decisions around reducing energy consumption and operational emissions through to creating zero energy buildings.

This expansion will ensure Fexillon is now well positioned to support mission critical building owner operators in the UK with regional and global footprints as the Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) industry embarks on an accelerated digitisation journey and makes significant advancements over the next five to ten years.

In addition, Fexillon has also announced that it is collaborating with Microsoft in the assessment of a range of solutions including Digital Twins, HoloLens technology and Building Information Modelling (BIM) integration. The expansion of the relationship will see Fexillon utilise Microsoft’s Azure cloud computing platform to support interactive digital replicas of Microsoft’s built infrastructure, allowing for the real time management of assets and leading to greater operational efficiencies, while leveraging the security benefits of the Microsoft Cloud.

The announcements were made today (Thursday 19th May) at this year’s Digital Construction Week, the UK’s leading exhibition for innovation and technology in the built environment, where Fexillon is one of the main exhibitors. The company joined Microsoft and Enterprise Ireland for a panel discussion on the provision of digital infrastructure as well as digital twins, mixed reality, and sustainability.

Fexillon was founded 22 years ago by George Harold and Kieran Beggan. From its base in Dublin, the company’s ambition is to become Europe’s largest provider of digital asset management solutions having completed numerous projects for UK owner-operators in the higher education, healthcare, rail infrastructure, pharma, and high-tech Cloud sectors, resulting in a need to establish a base in Britain.

“Over 22 years we have built a strong reputation for quality and innovation,” said Fexillon co-CEO and co-Founder, Kieran Beggan. “Our solutions offer peace of mind for blue-chip firms in the public and private sector, providing a more streamlined approach to buildings and property management. These markets will accelerate at pace as the pandemic eases and remote management capability expands under Industry 4.0 and includes process automation, IOT and robotics.

“Our expansion into the UK will ensure Fexillon is well positioned to support mission critical building owners with regional and global footprints and can provide a secure environment for managing building information from planning and design stage, construction and handover to operations and maintenance for the building owner and operator.”

George Harold, co-CEO and co-founder said: “Fexillon is now poised to become a significant player in Europe with our new UK base and the expansion of our international team. Launching in the UK marks a strategic pivot in our future direction and ongoing development of the company, and we believe that the potential to unlock further opportunities in the UK and European markets are huge.”

Fexillon supports a number of leading companies across Ireland, the UK and Europe such as Balfour Beatty, Bank of Ireland, University College Dublin, the University of Strathclyde, Manchester Metropolitan University, the Mater Hospital, Hines, Dublin Zoo, Fingal Country Council, the Aviva Stadium, Croke Park, Microsoft, CBRE, Irish Rail, Mace, and Winthrop as well as other multi-national technology companies. and other multi-national technology companies.

Fexillon has experienced rapid growth over the past year, having recently raised €2 million in equity through The Davy EIIS Fund, an employment and investment incentive scheme in Ireland which is managed on behalf of investors by BES Management DAC, a joint venture between BDO and Davy.

The company rebranded itself from IFS to Fexillon last December, when it shared plans to create 100 new jobs over the next three years to help expand its operations in the US, UK and Scandinavia.
