B4B CHALLENGE 2021 - 22
DIGITAL INNOVATION FOR URBANISATION
CARBON EFFECIENCY & SUSTAINABILITY - BEST PRACTICES IN REAL ESTATE
This year, B4B challenge will focus more on how the value chain of Real Estate, ranging from building material, energy management, design & planning, construction & demolishment, facility management, can become more sustainable through the empowerment of technology.
One may relate the real estate businesses mostly to buildings and bricks, but in fact, the property sector is closely related to a wide range of other sectors including many of our daily activities from a workplace, to a retail shopping outlet, a transportation station, and of course our homes.
Given its all-encompassing nature, there is plenty of room for innovation in this space. From tech startups that offer predictive inspection system to smart home IoT and geospatial analytics to others that use AI for construction site safety, advancements in real estate seem to hover just inches from realization.
