Platform Design Programme Overview

What is the Platform Design Programme?

Construction is changing. For the first time there is a funded Construction Sector Deal, through UK Research & Innovation’s Transforming Construction Challenge (TCC) programme, which seeks to create a more sustainable and productive sector. The Construction Innovation Hub is playing a key role in this transformation targeting a built environment with better whole life performance and exploiting digital and manufacturing technology to help achieve this.

The Hub’s Platform Design Programme is helping to create new platform solutions that can be deployed across multiple projects and sectors. We are working with industry through this programme to identify, refine and develop solutions that can be deployed at scale. We are also engaging with government departments to understand their requirements for new buildings such as schools, hospitals, social housing and much more.
