Shaping the Future of Construction and Real-Estate

Deloitte Catalyst | Tel Aviv

Technology is playing an increasingly central role in the construction and real estate industries as they usher in a new era, opening themselves to new types of methods, business models, and disruptive processes. More specifically, enterprises and investors are increasingly interested in disruptive technologies and innovations in the ConTech and PropTech domains. The technology adoption trend in the construction and real estate industries has also been accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The pandemic and subsequent worldwide lockdowns and
quarantines have reinforced the value of the home. The expectations of
homeowners and renters have risen as they seek fully functioning homes that
include space to live, work, and play in. The commercial real estate space, in
turn, is also affected as the growth of remote and/or hybrid work is causing
significant shifts in the use of real estate.


ConTech and PropTech refer to the intersection of ‘property’
and ‘technology’ and ‘construction’ and ‘technology’, respectively. These industry
areas correspond to the vast ecosystem of startups and emerging growth
companies that offer technologies and/or innovative products, services, and
business models across the real estate market.

Israel, the "Startup Nation," is one of the
countries leading the way in ConTech and PropTech. The country has the world’s
highest number of startups per capita, and over the past five years, the
innovation ecosystem has seen a rise in ConTech and PropTech solutions. The
