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!

We are calling all start-ups, scale-ups, and SMEs from the software and hardware area to submit their solutions and services in 4 main categories: ConstructionReal Estate | Smart City & Environment, and demonstrate how they are shaping the future of the industry and making our territories smart.

The Construction site 4.0. exists not only in a remote future vision but also in your project drafts. Now it’s time to show it! Either digital tools for planning and design, AR/VR-applications, (BIM) collaborative software or IoT-solutions for the smart construction site and eco-friendly intelligent building materials - make your innovation 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!

Smart cities are on the rise across the globe. What used to be a beautiful vision in the past became urban residents’ reality worldwide. Intelligent solutions for infrastructure optimization and governance, smart transportation and mobility, autonomous buildings, streamlined and responsive utilities - how does it feel to live in a smart city? Give us the answer in your solution!

Do you want to improve the environment we live in and keep our planet green and clean? Inspire us with your solution including software and platforms for green building, efficient water and energy management, smart waste management, minimization of greenhouse gas emissions, IoT connectivity, 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:
