IT, Telecom & Data

Data and data-driven technology have reshaped the construction industry. The brick and mortar sector is transforming fast into a data-driven, technology sector. Sea locks depend on complex software, traffic lights are ‘connected’ and sensors are placed on railways, roads and bridges for predictive maintenance and other purposes. This requires a fundamental rethink. HabrakenRutten is at the forefront of this development with an IT-practice which uniquely focuses on the needs of the sector.

Smart cities and infrastructures put increasing pressure on the speed and capacity of telecom networks. Where fibre optics can no longer meet the demand, providers will densify the network by way of small cells, terrestrial connection, hybrid techniques, 5G and other wireless techniques. Our team operates at the forefront and understands exactly this market’s needs.


HabrakenRutten’s IT-practice does not operate as a silo but fully integrated with the other practices. We advise among others on digital transformations, smart infrastructures, out- and cloud sourcing transactions, ‘As-a-service’ solutions, the ‘Internet of Things’, artificial intelligence, data privacy, IP rights, GDPR compliance and information security.
