Searching for the Mango in the Construction Industry
In 2019, the Danish Industry Fund launched a research project worth around €1 million to develop ideas for the use of blockchain in the construction industry. ZÜBLIN is involved in this research.
The project is divided into these six individual projects:
- Tracking BIM Changes
- Decision Made by Clients
- Internet of Things Devices
- Smart Contracts Defects
- Logistics/Digital Twin
Interdisciplinary teams with representatives from various companies work on these topics and develop ideas and applications based on Ethereum technology (decentralised open source platform).
ZÜBLIN provides practical know-how and pilot construction sites for testing purposes as part of this project. At the Carlsberg City District construction site, for example, numerous sensors were installed to generate data that can be used to test blockchain applications. In addition, possible areas of application and needs were discussed with site managers and initial ideas were presented.
