Stockholm/Oslo, Thursday, 20 February 2020: Today Per Lundquist, SVP Operations Development JM and Håvard Haukeland, co-founder and CEO of Spacemaker signed the expansion of their partnership.

JM is one of the leading developers of housing and residential areas in the Nordic region. With the AI technology delivered by Spacemaker, JM aims to cement its position as a leader within digital transformation and sustainability, which it considers both a responsibility and an ambition.

“At Spacemaker, we believe that technology has an integral role to play in creating well-functioning communities and the best possible living qualities for the people of today and tomorrow. We are very enthusiastic about the partnership with JM, as we share the vision that a clear emphasis on sustainability must form the basis for building cities and communities that can stand the test of time,” says Håvard Haukeland, CEO of Spacemaker.

JM was an early supporter of Spacemaker, testing the application in the field and contributing valuable insights to key features of the AI platform. The company is now expanding the collaboration as part of its extensive investments into the digitalisation of processes and products that will help create modern and sustainable housing for today and the future across the Nordic region.

Spacemaker has been growing rapidly since its launch in 2016. With now more than 100 employees and offices in Stockholm and Gothenburg, its objective is to dramatically improve decision support and collaboration in real estate development with the help of AI. The site intelligence platform empowers real estate developers, architects and municipalities to consider environmental criteria that are critical for the development of sustainable communities from the outset, such as wind, sunlight, quality outdoor spaces or noise.
