AEC Hackathon brings together the brightest tech developers and the building industry's leading forward thinkers to improve how buildings and cities are designed, built and operated.
On the weekend of February 26-28th, software and hardware developers & designers will team up with built environment professionals to create tech solutions and solve specific challenges for the built environment.
Built environment professionals consist of architects, engineers, planners, construction management professionals and facility managers.
Join us at the Consortium for Building Energy Innovation (CBEI) HQ for a weekend inspired by energy sustainability in the architecture, engineering and construction industry.

BEST OVERALL PROJECT
The project that really hits the mark on execution, utility, and technical merits.
BEST PROJECT THAT SOLVES A BIG AEC PROBLEM
The project that solves a big problem for a built environment profession.
BEST DIGITAL CITIES PROJECT
The best application using city data with open standards based frameworks and technologies.
BEST HACK FROM A PAST EVENT
Projects must be from previous AEC Hackathons or from AEC Hackathon Open Source projects to qualify. Keep the innovation going! See Open Source Projects Here
Best Use of Immersive Construction Lab Capabilities
The ICOn Lab is a 3 screen immersive display system that allows for full scale engagement with models, along with different interactive workspace characteristics
This challenge holds the opportunity for teams to have access to real time energy data of the venue as a potential source. Funded by the Department of Energy, The Consortium for Building Energy Innovation (CBEI), aims to develop market-tested pathways to 50% energy reduction in existing buildings by 2020. We have partnered with CBEI to provide a living laboratory, datasets and expertise.
Best integration of real time data into building management or building information modeling to improve design, comfort, or building operations.
Prize: A trophy of a scale and style fitting for AEC hackers that are the masters or sensors and 2 raspberry pies to get them down the road
As part of your solution to the challenge, you must use Flux but are not limited in using other technologies and design tools as well. In particular, use Flux to do something that previously could not be done or required significantly more time, such as but not limited to:
Your final design can be, but is not limited to, any of the following:
