Lendlease Podium makes Fast Company’s 2021 World Changing Ideas List

  • 4 May 2021

Podium, a digital platform of products and services that collect the entire value chain from development through to management of a building, achieved an Honourable Mention in the Software category – making it one of the top software innovations globally. 

Each year, Fast Company honours those businesses, policies, projects, and concepts that are actively engaged and deeply committed to pursuing innovation to solve health and climate crises, social injustice, or economic inequality. Previous recipients include Microsoft, Walt Disney Company, Apple and Patagonia.

Podium, which provides valuable insights and data to clients at every stage of a project, represents the future of autonomous buildings, allowing previously unattainable economic and sustainability targets to be met. 

For example, Podium Supply Automation houses supply chain management information, armed with live data sharing capability to coordinate the delivery of parts and equipment aligned to the project plan requirements.  

With sustainability at its core, Podium is allowing Lendlease to optimise its choice of partners, suppliers and sustainable materials, creating less waste material and aiding the use of renewable energy sources.
