COINS Grand Challenge RedBite CEO

RedBite CEO, Dr Alex Wong submitted his grand idea for the COINS Construction Industry Grand Challenge and is one of only 12 finalists who will compete in the grand final on the 8th of December 2015 where he will present his ideas in person to the judging panel.

The challenge was to put forward an idea using a new or emerging technology to radically improve energy consumption during a building’s lifecycle.

Alex’s idea is entitled “Building stories: one bit at a time” and is centred on the principle of creating buildings that can provide live, historic and crowdsourced data that paints an accurate and full picture of a building’s energy usage over its lifespan.
