We are looking for key partners to implement better construction processes and strengthen the use of data and technology to create smart cities.

CHALLENGE 2: CONSTRUCTION SYSTEMS

Seek new construction systems, with a focus on efficiency, sustainability, and flexibility, that challenge the way we are building and increase our productive capacity.
