Open competition

Do you have a viable idea that uses a new or emerging technology to radically reduce costs, increase efficiency or improve sustainability, quality or compliance during construction or throughout the built life cycle?

Enter to win cash prizes, R&D funding, investment in your business and exposure to influential leaders.

COINS Grand Challenge is on a mission to discover people from all over the world with innovative ideas that have the power to positively impact the built environment, and our society.

For a winner of the COINS Grand Challenge Open competition, they are looking for someone with a grand but viable technology-based idea that will have a significant impact on any of the aspects of cost, efficiency, cash flow, sustainability or compliance.

This could relate to any stage or process in the construction life cycle of built assets, from component design and manufacture, through the build and on-going usage, or with an impact throughout the whole construction life cycle.

Undergraduate competition

What new and emerging technology will have the greatest impact on business in future years and how might those technologies be applied to the built environment, whether during construction or throughout the built life cycle?

Send an 800-word essay or short video for a chance to win cash prizes and get in front of some of the industry’s biggest players
