Get ready to take the construction industry to the next level digitally! 🏗
Digital Construction 2022 will take place for the fourth time on 23-25 September to create a prototyping platform for the digitalization of the construction industry.
This year and for the first time the event is not built up on specific challenges but we're welcoming all cool ideas that help to digitize the construction industry. In 2022, the sky's the limit!
Nevertheless, to keep you a bit on track, we've developed topic areas that give you an insight into what is most relevant and needed in the industry and where it's heading in the near future, so you'd come up with solutions that have a real potential output for the market. Check out the topic areas section to get further insight and get inspired!
Digital Construction 2022 is organized by Garage48 and Remato in cooperation with the Estonian Digital Construction Cluster. The event is supported by the Estonian Ministry of Economic Affairs and Communications, the Estonian Woodhouse Association, Bauhub, and Werk.
Garage48 Digital Construction 2022 hackathon is a pre-event for the World of Digital Built Environment 2022 happening on September 28 - 29.
We welcome architects and developers, BIM specialists, contractors, engineers, building materials producers, software engineers, UI/UX designers, data scientists, business visionaries, students, young professionals, marketers, and everyone else interested in digitizing the construction industry. Every skill and background is valuable!
Garage48 hackathon is an intense, hands-on experience with expert mentoring, checkpoints, demo drills, and teamwork where you can implement your creativity and resourcefulness to the full extent. Don't miss the opportunity to build working prototypes in just 48 hours and be the change makers of the digital construction industry.
Digital Construction 2022 is a fully on-site event, taking place in Tallinn, at The Estonian Academy of Arts on 23-25 September.
You can register as an individual or a team, with or without an idea! Team formation will take place onsite at the beginning of the hackathon after all idea owners have pitched their potential solutions to the others.
The best solutions will be awarded sweet prizes that help the teams to develop their prototypes further and get them ready to enter the market.

There's a lot that can be done in the field of digital construction. To help guide your idea formation, we've set some topic areas. We encourage you to use the existing e-construction platform API services or think about how their prototype/service could add value to the platform. However, if your idea doesn't fall under any of the categories below, you're welcome to submit it anyway. As we said, the sky's the limit!
Circular economy of buildings
Accelerate the transition towards a carbon-neutral built environment by exploring opportunities in the circular economy and with the life cycle of buildings. Come and solve circular economy problems with data-driven solutions in terms of:
materials and products of waste and disposal;
societal or economical benefits of life cycle thinking;
carbon footprint assessment;
any other climate action opportunities utilizing building datasets.
Deep energy renovation digital solutions
Find solutions to high energy consumption levels, insufficient ventilation, uneven indoor temperatures, and insufficient thermal comfort levels:
scan to BIM processes and workflows;
BIM construction elements catalog;
automated design for manufacture;
energy and sustainable modeling workflows;
all other solutions to boost up offsite-prefabricated renovation technology.
Health and safety
Find solutions to raise the standards in construction health and safety:
Training and manuals
Incident reporting and documentation
Tools and equipment maintenance
Personal protective equipment
Find solutions for construction supply chain and communication inefficiencies related to many different parties in the segment:
Clients and main contractors
Main contractors and subcontractors
Contractors and material suppliers
Architects and engineers
Design and design management
Support clients, design teams and design managers to plan and develop better new or existing infrastructure and building projects for maximizing client and end-user value proposition, and achieving ambitious European Green Deal goals.
Value creation and management
Integrated and collaborative design project delivery
Remote design process management
- Communication and information management
Spatial planning and building
Bring efficiency and transparency into the spatial planning field. For example:
Text segmentation from explanatory letters (spatial planning and construction projects). Possible topics are conditions, recommendations, and explanations. How to find and digitize different conditions from a text document and how to use them in the building permit process?
3D visualization of spatial planning. How to visualize spatial planning conditions and how to use them in building permit procedures?
- Involvement tool for interest groups. How to easily communicate and involve different interest groups and how to manage feedback?
GENERAL CHALLENGES OF THE ESTONIAN CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY
- Low productivity and profitability;
- Low digitalization levels within smaller construction companies;
- Very little digital collaboration;
- Moderate implementation of modern technologies;
- Poor document and information management over the whole lifecycle of the building;
- Information exchange between building material producers and the other parties in the industry is not done automatically;
- Life cycle assessment and CO2 footprint for buildings are time-consuming to calculate due to insufficient data quality;
- Digitalisation and implementation of BIM.
