The Digital Built Environment Institute is proud to announce its second Hackathon in Sydney running on Wednesday 17th June, International Towers, Barangaroo, Sydney. This is running in conjunction with, and a day prior to the commencement of BILT ANZ.
This year’s theme is “Collaborative Data Modeling”.
From barn raising to delivering an international airport, building is a collaborative process. As the demands on the built environment have become more stringent and complex, more specialists are required to offer their expertise and more data sources are required for a successful project. Building talent and critical data must be enlisted from multiple locations around the world and clear communication is critical to support today’s practice of rapid delivery by multiple disciplines, working in multiple languages, on multiple platforms. For these reasons, this year the DBEI Hackathon series will focus on Collaborative Data Modeling.
We’re interested in solutions that focus on clear, concise, and effective communication of intent, proposals, and solutions involving the best technologies and key data sources pushed one step farther. Whether you’d like to explore better data interoperability or realtime collaboration in virtual reality, we’d like to see what’s possible to ensure the deepest understanding of project issues and their resolution. Let’s explore past the horizon of today’s collaborative methods and start building the better systems of the future!
So how will this DBEI Hackathon work?
A 1-Day design sprint-like event where teams work together, on a specific idea, with the goal to create usable software or hardware as functioning prototype or product by the end of the event.
How will the DBEI Hackathon work?
Each hackathon group will be between 4-6 people, with each group working on your respective project idea. You can either form a group prior to the event (maybe get a few of your friends or colleagues together) or sign up individually and join a group through our Slack Communications Group, or if you are late to register you can join a team on site!
- Wednesday morning, we kick off with introductions
- From 9:30am the hack (or fun) begins!
- Expert Users will be on hand throughout the day to offer their help for your hack
- 8 hours later teams will demonstrate and show off their results to all attendees and the Judges
- Following will be the awards ceremony with a hard earned drink or two to commemorate a job well done!
The Winning Teams will be rewarded with prizes, plus 1st place will be given the chance to present the winning project at the BILT ANZ closing plenary on Saturday 20 June.

DBEI Insight Webinars help me stay up to date on the global BIM trends and learn more about various processes of the AEC community. Plus, it truly feels like friends helping friends, just like at the BILT conferences!
BILT epitomises the desire for change in today’s construction and building management industry as it gathers together similarly motivated professionals from all sides of the conversation and gives them a platform to exchange ideas as freely as they wish to exchange data. I attend BiLT every year to learn, to share, and to re-energise my enthusiasm for driving digital change in the built environment.
BILT offers a great opportunity to engage with our industry partners, to break down the collaboration barriers, and to get an understand of the possibilities of technology within our industry.
This is the number one conference for both training and strategic thinking in BIM and Digital Engineering in the built environment. Truly a meeting of minds with the best practitioners from all parts of the industry and all over the world.
It's always great to see what industry peers are up to. BILT is a reality check that validates whether you're on the right track within your industry. As always there are a few golden nuggets to take away and implement back at your own practice. The fresh perspective that different points of view provide is invaluable.
"For me it was a great opportunity to engage experts, new learners, and those curious about what is possible. Everyone had something to contribute - how much better can that be!!! And the best part is I learn new things I can use - I didn't expect that."
"I came in to the Hackathon with very little coding experience and wondering if I would get much out of it at all, but the event surpassed my expectations and was a fantastic experience both as a learning opportunity and as a networking event and challenge for all of our team's abilities."
"This was my first Hackathon and it was a blast! I really didn't know what to expect going in and was a little worried about my "hacking" skills. However, there were people of all skill levels and experts and other team members were very helpful and supportive. It was a great learning experience and I hope to do it again soon!"
‘We are completely satisfied with the (BCS) experience, we were able to engage the “right” people. It has led to future opportunities and ideas to move forward’
