Our historical

OUR ORIGINS

In 2005, our future founder was working as a structural engineer in San José, California.
During that period, and to meet the ends of months, he had a one full time job as a structural design engineer for parking structures, and two part-time jobs as structural design engineer for residential buildings. These required at least 80 to 90 hours of work per week.

Working with contractors in his construction administration assignments (note that construction administration is different from construction management), he was noticing how easily the contractors he was dealing with were leaving “stupidly” money on the table.

 

They systematically had a hard time understanding the scope of work, sure they did not have the mental sharpness and intelligence of structural design engineers but they did not have the sophistication needed to adopt quickly the new trends in BIM and virtual construction, and combining the whole with project scheduling.

He then recorded that the same happened with him early in his career, when he was working on a major oil and gas pipeline project as contractor.

Here came the idea of creating Ekton’s parent company, to deal with these shortages. At that time, a former classmate of the founder, who was working in the oil and gas industry decided to visit him for a few days, while preparing for his PMI PMP certification.

After sharing industries’ insights, it became clear that the issues with scope management and project scheduling where the same everywhere. And most delays in projects were in fact resulting from lack of maturity in project management, regardless of whether those projects were managed by veterans with 20 years of experience.
