Transforming construction through digital and advanced manufacturing technologies
The Construction Innovation Hub brings together world-class expertise from the Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC), Building Research Establishment (BRE) and the Centre for Digital Built Britain (CDBB) to transform the UK construction industry.
With £72 million from UK Research and Innovation’s Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund, we will change the way buildings and infrastructure are designed, manufactured, integrated and connected within our built environment.
We will be a catalyst for change. We will drive collaboration to develop, commercialise and promote digital and manufacturing technologies for the construction sector. We will help build smarter, greener and more efficient buildings much faster and cheaper than we currently do.
Research will help us understand how the industry must change in terms of skills, product standards, capacity and innovation. This will be combined with an academic programme to create the security-minded frameworks and rules which will underpin the future digital built environment and grow exports for UK know-how.
We will work closely with other initiatives as part of the Government’s Transforming Construction challenge programme. Through collaboration across the sector, we can provide a better built environment for future generations.
