Cities are being changed by new approaches to buildings – its constituent parts – and also by how they are used. The city is currently an area that involves public, commercial, and industrial activities but also a place where people live, work, learn, and create and take in culture and sports. Increasing an area’s attractiveness is a major challenge for the local economy as a whole.
The construction sector is going through an unprecedented revolution. Regulatory requirements and the growing demand for new services and uses is forcing the development of new tools and increasingly connected solutions. Also, bringing various stakeholders together is increasingly necessary to optimize economic development, manage public assets, and "living better together".
In this context, we want to work on developing tools/digital services that help address the following issues.
Together, these tools will help improve the management of property assets and will bring local area stakeholders closer together in an economic and civic sense.
The applicant should present his/her solution/service that includes a technological, technical or service innovation related to one or more of the following themes:
All of these solutions and services will need to meet demonstrated needs in building construction or renovation and can be applied at the scale of a single site, a neighborhood or a public or private real estate asset.
The winners will be selected based on the following criteria:
