Building and infrastructure innovations
Rising to every challenge.

Pioneering new possibilities for the built environment industry.

Digitalisation, rapid urbanisation and climate change. These are just some of the megatrends that are transforming the way we build.

At JTC, we are meeting these challenges by anticipating change and staying one step ahead.

From smart facilities management to sustainable industrial development, we are partnering industry players to introduce solutions. We are also working with research and academic institutes, collaborating with the brightest minds to uncover game-changing possibilities.

Embracing digital transformation.

As buildings become more complex, so does the construction process. With digitalisation, we now have a solution that not only simplifies operations but brings new possibilities to planners and builders.

Championing renewable energy.

Solar energy is good for the environment. But can it be good for business? Our SolarRoof programme proves it’s possible. Not only that, it turns out to be a win-win situation for adopters and providers too.

Working with artificial intelligence.

Is there a safer and less tedious way to inspect buildings? Our partner H3 Dynamics answered the challenge with a high-flying idea. Say hello to AI-enabled technology.

Automating tasks with robotics.

Can technology give our building painters a hand? Transforma’s PictoBot does more than that. Adaptable and tireless, the robotic helper gives productivity and safety a boost too.

Restoring our natural environment.

Didn’t know we use our engineering expertise to enhance nature? Now you do. In this project, our skills in creating vibrant spaces came in very handy giving marine life a new place to thrive.

Is your solution the next game-changer?

At JTC, we are always looking for ways to help the built environment sector do better.

Through our Innovation Challenge, we give the public an opportunity to contribute solutions.

Winning entries will enjoy project funding from us. You will also have access to our expertise as well as sites where you can conduct real-world trials.

This co-development, and resource sharing for R&D, will help bring the solution to market faster.

To qualify for the challenge, be sure your solution is still in the Proof-of-Concept to Test Bed stages.
