Creating a digital solution for early stage building design, targeting low CO2 alternatives for the residential sector

At CRH, specifically from the Innovation Center for Sustainable Construction (iCSC), we identify sustainability to be a fundamental strategic imperative for our business, that is deeply embedded in all aspects of our business. Our vision is to develop solutions that build, connect and improve our world. Since the construction industry contributes to circa 40% of the CO2 emissions, we are bringing to you a challenge that aims to tackle the existing construction industry and provide sustainable solutions to our customers.

  •  Digital Solution Hackathon

Dedicated to students, digital product designers, developers, engineers, and those in the Architecture, Construction, and Engineering sectors to make a real impact.

The challenge is to create Minimum Viable Products (MVPs), guided by our designers and coaches, who will make sure you are fully supported in this journey.

The Digital Solution would ultimately empower architects, consultants and construction companies to design zero Co2 buildings and cities.
