AEC Hackathon

**UNDER CONSTRUCTION, NEW SITE IN THE WORKS**

The AEC (Architecture, Engineering, Construction) Hackathon was created in 2013 to give those designing, building, and maintaining our built environment the opportunity to collaborate with cutting edge technologies and its developers and designers. With over 45 events globally, it’s an experience of geeking at its finest for improving the industries that affect all that live or work in a house or building. It has quickly become a global community of innovators that include all elements of the built environment.

If you are a built environment and or tech professional, expert, company, conglomerate, country, alien, robot AI, or other working to improve the built environment / give super powers to its workforce, join us!



This video from our friends at BLOXHUB gives a great overview of what an AEC Hackathon is about.
