Hackathon: Smart Procurement Toolkit for the AEC Industry

Using R3 CORDA blockchain + Kotlin for smart construction and infrastructure projects


The CBC is pleased to announce our second DLT/AEC Hackathon, led by University College London and R3. On this event we will develop blockchain smart contract tools for the real state and construction sector and further develop our open source project: Smart Procurement for the AEC Industry.

The Hackathon will take place at UCL’s Bloomsbury Campus for 3 days of intense coding with R3 developers.

This event is open to all, but will be of particular interest to CEOs and CTOs in the Real Estate and AEC industries, Startups, AEC Professionals, Computer Scientists and Software Developers. No Corda knowledge is necessary but a general understanding of OOP is desirable. Familiarity with Java and Kotlin is recommended.


10am – 5pm, Wednesday 7th to Friday 9th November 2018


University College London, Malet Place, London, WC1E 7JG



The CBC's Hackathons are strategic, tailored events to develop open source DLT & Blockchain solutions for the AEC Industry. The collaborative effort is open to many technologies and aims to grow the CBC open source projects. We bring together leading technologists, industry experts, and academic practitioners to investigate the potential disruption and practical application of emerging technologies and actively develop new digital tools for the built environment.

[All proceeds from events will go towards the development of CBC open source projects]

The Construction Blockchain Consortium was established to develop knowledge transfer, arrange commercial and academic presentations, assess and test commercial services and technology, conduct research, and drive policy, regulation and understanding of the consequences of Blockchain and other emerging technologies in the Built Environment. The CBC is led by the UCL Department of Computer Science and The UCL Bartlett Faculty of the Built Environment. We also investigate the development of open source tools on behalf of the industry and encourage application developers to build proprietary technology and services to deliver sustainable construction solutions.
