World Changing Idea


Falkbuilt’s “World Changing Idea”

Fast Company recognizes Digital Component Construction

When Falkbuilt launched a few years ago, the small but mighty team was confident they had an idea whose time had come. Today, with more than 2,500 projects installed around the world, more than 100 Factory Direct Branches and a nod from Fast Company for our “World Changing Idea,” it’s more than clear that Digital Component Construction is making a mark.

Fast Company’s annual competition seeks out businesses and organizations that are bringing the best and brightest innovative solutions to vexing global challenges “It’s terrific being recognized by a leading publication like Fast Company,” says Mogens Smed, the co-founder and CEO of Falkbuilt and Echo.

“We started Falkbuilt with the credo: We’re innovating, not inventing,” he says. “In less than three years, Falkbuilt—using Echo technology—is doing what no other company in the whole world can do. We have successfully installed custom projects in India, the Middle East, Europe and across North America. We even have an installation in Antarctica!”

Powered by Echo technology, Falkbuilt manufactures digital components and ships them to job site for fast efficient installs, using far fewer materials with virtually no waste on site. Echo creates an engineering accurate model in the cloud, streamlining the process from design to manufacturing to installation. During design, stakeholders use mobile devices or desktop to meet inside the Revit model, in the cloud, to discuss and make real time changes. Echo empowers industry-standard software and ensures the right information goes where it’s needed, when it’s needed, reducing human error and saving time and money.

“Our World Changing Ideas Awards are an annual recognition of the innovative ways companies and individuals are tackling the thorniest challenges of our time,” says Aimee Rawlins, the outlet’s Senior Editor. “These problems can feel overwhelming, but these projects are a reminder of the many people who are tirelessly working on creative ways to solve them.”

Fast Company editors and writers read through thousands of entries to find “the most inspiring and unique solutions that have the biggest potential for impact.”
