NYCEDC Smart Buildings Tech Challenge Seeks Applicants for Brooklyn Army Terminal Pilot Program

100 years ago, the Brooklyn Army Terminal launched as a military depot in Sunset Park. Designed and built in less than two years (!), BAT was the country’s biggest supply base in the world’s largest concrete building. Now, it’s home to light manufacturers, retailers, and, starting this summer, NYC’s smart technologies. NYCEDC is seeking short proposals for innovative building tech pilots that can transform the Brooklyn Army Terminal into a smart and sustainable 21st century industrial campus. Applications are due July 12 at 4pm, and here is the application.

The Smart Buildings Tech Challenge invites applicants with market-ready technologies to submit proposals for pilot projects that address a few key challenge areas related to infrastructure and operations at BAT. Challenge areas include Smart Metering (electric or water metering), Smart Maintenance (onsite infrastructure maintenance, including elevators and water pumps), and Smart Communication (tech facilitating communication/information sharing within BAT and with the surrounding community). Selected finalists will be invited to a pitch event this summer, and winning proposals will be contracted by EDC to pilot the project at BAT. All the details are here.

Important Dates:
June 11, 2pm: Optional site tour. RSVP to [email protected] by June 6, 5pm
June 15, 5pm: Submissions of questions to email above
July 12, 4pm: Applications due to NYCEDC
August 15: Finalists will be notified
