Big Ideas Triumph at COINS Construction Industry Grand Challenge

Big ideas for energy conservation and sustainability in construction triumphed in the inaugural COINS Construction Industry Grand Challenge.

The twelve finalists represented 6 countries and a wide variety of ideas: solar desalination, high resolution building management data capture & analytics, 3D 'printing' of buildings using recycled materials, and more.

The achievements of the finalists were celebrated during a gala dinner and awards ceremony at Cambridge University's Magdalene College on the 8th of December 2015. Our friends at Crossform Media have put together this highlights video for the competition.

The Grand Challenge Team set out six months ago with a very ambitious target of creating a new global competition to uncover innovators and entrepreneurs with big ideas that could impact the lives of millions. We are here tonight seeing that goal in action: celebrating the achievements of the Grand Challenge finalists and giving them a platform for sharing their ideas.
