The Journey

Founder and CEO, René Morkos, grew up in the construction business. The son of a civil engineer, his first job was as a draftsman. He later managed projects large and small, from Beirut to Dubai to Afghanistan to Athens. On every job he had heard the same questions. How can we build faster? What can we do to speed up the job? Why are my crews waiting?

team

It's when he attended Stanford University for a PhD in Construction Management where Morkos gained better insights into how modern computer technology and artificial intelligence could be applied to the construction industry.

ALICE Technologies is working with some of the largest construction companies in the world to help them build faster and more efficiently. We integrate directly with leading Building Information Management systems and generate sophisticated 4D (with time as the fourth dimension) planning routines and recipes that make it drop-dead simple to optimize the most complex projects. As a customer of ours who’s a 35-year veteran scheduler likes to say, anyone can become an ALICE expert in half a day.


Our growing team is made up industry experts, construction doers, and a team of engineers that is out to solve construction's biggest problems.
