About Us

We Are a Multinational Innovation & Technology Hub

GENx Design & Technology is a New York and Istanbul based modern innovation hub committed to take part in Industry 4.0. With partners around the world, we aim to provide BIM integrated project management solutions that are case specific.
Along with the advent of Industry 4.0, we thrive off of our research and collaboration with our professional and academic partners. We invest great importance in the outcome of construction and perceive it as not only a ‘product’ but also as a ‘process.’ We are a leading force behind leveraging aerospace & automotive technologies into the AEC industry.
Our small yet highly skilled team excels in solving complex problems in the construction of high-rise and large-scale projects. Utilizing BIM knowledge and pioneering ground-breaking Generative Design and Automation techniques through CATIA and 3DExperience platforms, we provide enhanced project coordination, streamlined timelines, and overall cost reduction. Across major cities like New York, Shanghai, Dubai, Istanbul, Mexico City, Singapore, and Malaysia, we’re reshaping the construction landscape, setting an unparalleled standard for excellence in the industry.
In conjunction with our work on the field, we are committed to contributing to academia in order to bridge the gap between the academia and the industry as we believe that the academic community plays a crucial role in the transformation of the AEC domain.
