Revo­lu­tion Pre­crafted founder among 25 BuiltWorld pioneers

The Philippine Star - - REAL ESTATE -

Rob­bie Antonio, the founder and CEO of uni­corn prop­er­tytech startup Revo­lu­tion Pre­crafted, has been cho­sen as part of BuiltWorld’s first-ever Mav­er­icks Re­port: “25 Pioneers Who’ve Trans­formed The Built In­dus­try,” a recog­ni­tion of the most in­flu­en­tial movers and shakers in the fields of global ar­chi­tec­ture, en­gi­neer­ing, con­struc­tion (AEC) and re-in­dus­try (RE).

BuiltWorld is a global on­line re­source for play­ers in the AEC and RE in­dus­tries.

The pres­ti­gious ac­co­lade puts Antonio along­side some of the most es­teemed lu­mi­nar­ies in real es­tate, ven­ture fi­nance, ar­chi­tec­ture/de­sign, con­struc­tion, en­gi­neer­ing and soft­ware so­lu­tions. These in­clude Tesla founder Elon Musk, Pritzer­award win­ner Frank Gh­ery and Amer­i­can uni­corn founders Adam Neu­mann of Wework and Michael Marks of Katerra, among oth­ers.

“We are hum­bled by this ci­ta­tion from BuiltWorld. We feel so hon­ored to be part of such es­teemed in­di­vid­u­als who have helped trans­form their re­spec­tive in­dus­tries, and helped cre­ate a bet­ter, more modern world,” Antonio said.

Revo­lu­tion Pre­crafted is a com­pany that man­u­fac­tures, sup­plies and ships lim­ited edi­tion, de­sign driven pre­fab­ri­cated homes, pavil­ions and other re­lated struc­tures. The com­pany has part­nered with 73 of the world’s most pre­em­i­nent ar­chi­tects, de­sign­ers and artists from around the world in­clud­ing Zaha Ha­did, Jean Nou­vel, and Chris­tian de Portzam­parc, among oth­ers.

“In or­der to dis­rupt the land­scape, you have to be more in­no­va­tive and you have to take more risks. Cre­at­ing lux­ury pre­fab­ri­cated homes was a big chal­lenge be­cause be­fore the com­pany, peo­ple don’t re­ally as­so­ciate pre­fab­ri­cated homes and struc­tures to qual­ity and lux­ury. But we saw the op­por­tu­nity to cre­ate some­thing dif­fer­ent and we took the risk. The pay­off has been quite re­ward­ing,” Antonio added.

Since its in­cep­tion in 2015, Revo­lu­tion Pre­crafted has since be­come the fastest com­pany to reach startup sta­tus in South­east Asia, val­ued at $1 bil­lion.

It has bagged close to $6 bil­lion worth of projects, in­clud­ing $1.1-bil­lion Bat­u­lao Artscapes in Na­sugbu, Batan­gas and the $350-mil­lion Revo­lu­tion Fla­vorscapes project in Mex­ico, Pam­panga.

In March, the com­pany an­nounced its $3.2-bil­lion part­ner­ship with Seven Tides to build con­do­mini­ums, apart­ments and ho­tel vil­las on nine is­lands at “The World” project in Dubai. The com­pany also signed a deal with Myan­mar’s KT Group for the sup­ply of homes and re­tail struc­tures for the $1.2-bil­lion Okkyin mixed de­vel­op­ment project in Yan­gon.
