Dozens of new studies are shining the light on the “slowness” with which the built industry has adopted technology.

But in 2017, with more affordable costs and less risk, there’s no longer an excuse not to take a stake in tech investment. This November, we’re helping industry companies get a “taste” of what technology can do for their business.


Introducing the BuiltWorlds Hackathon.

It’s a week-end long competition where all-star developers, makers, and designers gather to hack creative solutions to burning AEC industry problems, using the world’s most cutting-edge technologies.

How It All Works

Stage 1: Teams of 3-6 people are given an industry problem to solve.

Stage 2: Teams have 21 hours to churn out a prototype solution.

Stage 3: The pitch. Each team presents their ideas to a panel of judges. The winner receives a $$$ prize.


Choose Your Challenge. Feel the Heat of Competition.

We have three challenges available for hackers to enter:

  • Software Challenge (the best application of software)
  • Maker Challenge (the best application of hardware or robotics)
  • Design Challenge (the best design plan to meet an owner’s challenge)

The winner of each challenge receives a cash prize.
