About Building&Co: You are the architect!
Building&Co is a management simulation game which allows the player to experience all the aspects of managing and supervising a real construction site. Players must adhere to building specifications, keep to budget and take into account technical constraints; as well as hitting crucial deadlines to be able to complete on time and progress on to more ambitious building projects.
In a rich and highly detailed 3D environment, players take control of the complete construction process such as hiring, managing and coordinating workers to the purchasing of materials, constructing foundations and floor design.
Building&Co is the first construction management simulation game to offer unprecedented freedom in decision making, and offers hours of fun with a technical twist that will appeal to fans of the simulation genre.
