We’re here to make your project much easier

Our story

At ProperGate, we understand the problems posed by complex construction projects.

We know the thrill and the buzz of construction, but we also know the headaches and frustration – because we’ve experienced it all first-hand.

What’s different about ProperGate is that we’re also experts in digitalisation.

So we know how to model that real-world complexity – and translate it into lines of code.

We also have an in-depth understanding of the needs of different job roles. So your people can get access to exactly the right information, in the right way, at the right time.

Meaning that you can focus on the part that you’re good at.

Building things.
