Join BESIX in co-creating sustainable innovation


Digital, the construction sector?

“Yes ! BESIX was one of the sponsors of the 1st hackathon on the theme “digital construction” organized by the Belgian Construction Federation on 20-22 April.”

@Peter Bertels, in charge of Creativity & Digital Enabling at BESIX, was the facilitator of this weekend of co-creation with no less than 55 enthusiasts.

Inspired by 4 coaches during 48 hours, the 55 participants focused on artificial intelligence, 3D technology, lean and IoT applied to the construction sector.

Results: 7 projects have emerged including CoCo, a collaborative robot that already received a contract with a customer on Saturday, a project in which participated @Gaetan Auvray, cost controller at BESIX!

The first award went to the SAM Machine, an app health & safety detecting dangerous situations on construction sites (lack of helmet, risk of falling, …)

The icing on the cake: BESIX won at the end of the weekend the “sustainable award” for Cocycle, a waste recovery project on site.

Congratulations to all participants !
