There is no fee to participate. The event is free to participants, and visitors who wish to view/follow.
Absolutely not! That’s the benefit of collaborative design. Participants from across the globe are encouraged to register and get in on the action.
Participation from all disciplines in the AECO community, from architects to engineers to landscapers, is encouraged and welcome. The more diverse the disciplines of your team, the better.
It’s encouraged to be for organizations of all sizes. In March 2015 we held an SME (Small to Medium Enterprise) specific competition in the UK & Ireland. The teams included a college for boys as well. So Colleges and Universities are also encouraged to compete.
We have anywhere from 15 to 45 teams compete on a global level. Some firms and colleges/universities like to pair up to create a diverse skillset for the competition. This promotes collaboration and interoperability.
Participation has grown from strength to strength as the competitions gain more notoriety. The awards are so coveted by the teams that they often advertise the awards on their email signatures following a win.
Historically we’ve had 6 judges.
Teams are encouraged to collaborate and use open inter-operability to complete the project on time. BUILD EARTH LIVE also serves to highlight the skills of each team to the wider audience and gives educational institutions the opportunity to compete or collaborate with commercial firms out in the real world.
