On a mission to accelerate adoption of technology in the AEC industry.


Our Purpose

Mainstream education is no match for today's fast-paced tech-revolution.

The world has much more to offer architects and engineers than age-old curriculums, outdated tech, and uninspiring jobs. It's all about empowering the community to seize the opportunities.

That’s why we created Novatr:

Where we tap into insider experience to identify relevant skills and pave a brilliant path forward for you.

Where there's access to tools, technology, industry expertise, projects and mentors to help you grow.

Where community and creativity are leveraged to design tech-first curriculums that open doors to your future.

Where the industry's inadequate standards are addressed by being the voice that advocates better for you.

“A house on the Moon in the Metaverse. Structures that defy gravity. Algorithms that give rise to cities. You can create them all. We'll show you how.”

How It All Began

In 2018, we were fresh out of college, excited to start our journeys as architects. Reality hit us hard when we entered the job market and realised that we hadn’t a clue about how projects were executed in the real world. Our friends, too, were stumbling around, trying to negotiate their way through a confusing industry.

To top it all off, opportunities were few and exploitation was rampant. Something didn’t sit right.

Investigation led us to conclude that the AEC space itself was extremely fragmented and a lot of it came from an inertia for embracing new technologies. Since then, we’ve been on a mission to transform the way the AEC industry operates.

We believe a new world cannot be built if talent and industries remain stuck with old tricks.
