Better way to build
Tactplan is all about building the right way.
How it all started
Exigo is founded by Kristian Birch Pedersen. He holds a Ph.D. in building informatics. His experience with construction technology and BIM dates back to around 2003. He was one of the early adaptors of 3D modeling in the Danish construction industry and has led the BIM development ever since.
Kristian started working in a construction company at the age of 10 and has since strived for ways to make the industry better and more efficient.
Why we want to make a difference
The construction industry faces several challenges, such as improving productivity and delivering sustainable growth. Exigo’s mission and belief are and have always been to help create a more sustainable and efficient way of building.
We have found three key areas where we significantly contribute to markedly improving productivity and sustainability for our customers.
- First, the projects must have a constructible building model (BIM). Or, as we usually explain, “if you can’t build the project on screen – you can’t build it in reality – therefore, we suggest helping you fix it on screen first.”
- Secondly, in a collaborative process, you must develop an optimal Location Based (Line of Balance) Schedule for your entire project, including the quantities and resources needed.
- Finally, you must track and follow up on progress, preferably daily, and visualize the data live so that it is transparent for everyone and you can mitigate risks and changes as they occur.
Pursuing the purpose
If you succeed with all three key areas, you can save the planet about 15 % of the total CO2 emission of the construction industry. This is because waste in the construction industry is enormous because of defects and bad scheduling.
In the Nordic countries, Location Based Scheduling, or “Cyclogram Planning,” as it is called locally, has gained massive success. Many companies have repeatably documented savings in the construction time of 10-20 % by optimizing the construction site’s tact, flow, logistics, and resources.

Tactplan, is the perfect match
Tactplan is determined to be vital in this industry’s needed transformation. We aim to help build sustainable and better. Save time, save money, and save the environment.
Exigo has used the method since the company’s establishment in 2010 on a broad range of projects such as large-scale hospitals, tunnels, railways and stations, offshore and onshore wind turbines, residential buildings, university buildings, etc.
Our years of experience with Location-Based (Line of Balance) Scheduling and Takt Time Planning is now embedded in the software Tactplan. It is built on scientifically proven methods, modern cloud-based software and is super user-friendly.
We hope you will enjoy working with Tactplan and help make the construction industry more sustainable through better scheduling and transparent processes.
