4th Smart Building Smart Construction Innovation World Cup®

supported by


Everyday more than one thousand houses must be built to meet the demand for new homes for the growing worldwide population. The environment where we live in must evolve. Smart construction sites, smart buildings, and the infrastructures for our cities are needed now. This can shortly be realized only if innovative technologies are integrated to the construction and facility management process supported by Building Information Modeling (BIM). The full potential is still to be unlocked!

Together with our partners Mittelstand 4.0 Kompetenzzentrum Planen und Bau and BIM World MUNICH, we are calling all start-ups, scale-ups, and SMEs from the software, hardware and non-connected fields to submit their solutions and services in 4 main categories: Planning Construction | Operations of building and infrastructure & Environment, and demonstrate how they are shaping the future of the industry, fostering our circular economy and making our territories smarter.

A digital twin is born: All future building projects are constructed visually before the physical execution of the plan. Let us see your solution for planning, data collection and exchange, collaboration between all stakeholders or the visualization of the construction projects – And become the next star in the AEC industry!

Show us how you will make the construction site more safe, more cost and material efficient! From telematic solutions and applications, remote control of vehicles, connected and smart construction equipment, materials and machines to software for a continues site monitoring…or whatelse do you think of? Make your innovation for the construction site 4.0 count!

Are you the one who makes our living spaces smarter and safer? Operation and maintenance of building systems, fully connected smart home systems, interior design technologies, IoT security, and AI devices – we are curious about what else you have to offer for the intelligent property management!

Does your solution improve the environment we live in and keep our planet clean? Inspire us with your sustainable solution for green building, efficient water and energy management, smart waste management, minimization of Co2 footprint and greenhouse gas emissions, smart street lighting, to name but a few, and become a part of our eco-system!

The 4th Smart Building/Smart Construction Innovation World Cup® will celebrate the new applications, user scenarios, collaboration technologies, software, services and efficiency solutions bringing a fundamental change in the construction and building industry. Will your solution enhance the construction process by sensing concrete information, by monitoring the later building quality, by optimizing the supply chain during the construction process, by improving the infrastructure and sustainable development of cities or by making the whole process safer for the worker and the real estate owner? Then this is for you! The finalists of the 4th Smart Building Smart Construction Innovation World Cup® will:
