Hack.Asia Challenge
Building a Better World
For Students & Innovators

Built environments have significant impact on our natural environment, not only in their creation but in the ongoing operations to keep them safe, secure, clean, comfortable, and healthy, for everyone who enters.

In today's world, this is largely done through manual labour. JLL is exploring technologies to enhance the ability of the human workforce to provide the aforementioned assurances for built environment while reducing the impact on our natural world.

About JLL

JLL is a world leader in real estate services, powered by an entrepreneurial spirit. We want the most ambitious clients to work with us, and the most ambitious people to work for us. It's as simple as that.

We buy, build, occupy and invest in a variety of assets including industrial, commercial, retail, residential and hotel real estate. From tech startups to global firms, our clients span industries including banking, energy, healthcare, law, life sciences, manufacturing and technology.

THE CHALLENGE

In building management, staffing turnover is quite high which leads to very high onboarding and training costs. What technologies could help quickly upskill the workforce that manages and building to help them feel a better sense of fulfilment in their work, learn valuable new skills, and focus on better serving others?

Capital costs for materials, hardware, and systems that help reduce environmental impact of buildings more often than not exceed the savings they create. What technologies being used currently for other sectors could help reduce operating costs, energy consumptions, and extend lifecycles of core systems in buildings?
