The KARDHAM Group introduces KARDHAM DIGITAL and acquires HDR Communications to become a key player in smart buildings.

The KARDHAM Group, announces the creation of its subsidiary KARDHAM DIGITAL, a digital services company specialized in digital technologies applied to commercial real estate. This independent and integrated player in the professional real estate market also presents the acquisition of HDR communications, expert in the design and implementation of BtoB digital solutions. These two developments should enable the KARDHAM Group to accelerate its positioning in the digital sector, initiated in 2017, and to reinforce its holistic approach to professional buildings and their working environments with the aim of becoming a key operator in smart building.

Founded in 1992, the KARDHAM Group has rapidly evolved from its original business as a developer of professional spaces to become a global real estate operator, through a strategy of external growth, from the strategic genesis of projects to their complete delivery, including architectural and technical design.

Starting in 2017, based on its cross-knowledge of buildings and uses, the KARDHAM Group has embarked on its digital mutation to guide the transformation of the real estate sector towards a revolution in uses, centred on services and intelligence at the heart of the building, under the impetus of numerous technological innovations.

To support its clients (public and private companies, key accounts, smes, start-ups, etc.) In their digital transformation, KARDHAM today announced the creation of KARDHAM DIGITAL, whose mission is to provide property owners and investors with expertise to improve the performance and marketability of their assets, and to optimise and enrich the user experience in business premises using digital technology.

The philosophy of KARDHAM DIGITAL is to integrate the multiple architectural, technical, regulatory, ergonomic and human dimensions to make the project a success. The company is involved in smart building, smart office or digital workplace applications by offering a range of services in the design, implementation and operation of digital solutions. With an experienced team, KARDHAM DIGITAL is able to guarantee the relevance, operationality and security of digital transformation solutions in the complexity of real estate projects.

To strengthen KARDHAM DIGITAL’s core competencies, the KARDHAM Group announces the acquisition of HDR Communications, a company specialized since 1995 in the design, production and operation of btob digital solutions: professional broadcasting and audiovisual, multimedia and digital display, mobile applications, web development.

The acquisition of HDR Communications is a unique strategic opportunity for each of the companies.

“By welcoming HDR Communications, we offer the KARDHAM Group the opportunity to strengthen the digital expertise of its subsidiary KARDHAM DIGITAL. This acquisition, which is naturally in line with our positioning as an integrated player, consolidates our ability to deliver a global offer to our clients which, combined with our in-depth knowledge of end-user expectations, will enable us to better respond to the stakes and challenges of smart building”, underlines Jean-François Couëc, Chairman of the KARDHAM Group.

We are pleased to join an independent and leading french group, to benefit from its commercial strike force, its locations in major french cities and existing customer synergies, to develop together the best digital infrastructures and services and make KARDHAM DIGITAL a key player in today’s and tomorrow’s buildings,” says Daniel Trabucco, President of HDR Communications.
