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 opensource 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.


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 to encourage application developers to build proprietary technology and services to deliver sustainable construction solutions.
