Marco Polo 100 Digital Build Challenge was created with the goal of achieving our mission to build affordable housing using new construction technologies and processes.
Revolutionize the construction industry, solve the affordable housing crisis by building a multi-residential building for $100/sq ft using new technologies. Invitation to innovators in 3D printing, prefabrication technologies, robotics, architecture, and construction.
With 7 decades of experience building, financing, and operating complex long term infrastructure projects in one of Canada’s most influential cities, Toronto, Horizon is driven to pioneer the next innovation in sustainable real estate.
Construction is an industry that’s made relatively little progress in how it organizes its business, still using century-old technologies and processes. We believe digital capabilities present opportunities to make qualitative leaps for the industry. There have been piecemeal efforts made, but no significant revolution in overall project scale practice.
This is where we want your help!
Horizon is looking for passionate individuals around the world who have innovative solutions that can help us bring our vision to life. We want your ideas & will partner with you to realize them. We will provide land, technical expertise, and funding to actualize and build the chosen concepts. At the end of our journey, our goal is to have several completed buildings that are operational, and places people can call home.
All of the above has resulted in a shortage of affordable housing for the modern family.
We hope that with increasing use of technology, automation, and innovation in construction processes we can:
- Reduce costs and timelines for construction
- As a derived effect of the above, reduce the cost of housing
- Reduce project risks, particularly with on-site construction risks such as weather and other external factors
- Improve efficiency and productivity
- Attract younger people to the field of construction and create new types of jobs
- Improve health and safety conditions for workers
