The Construction Innovation Hub brings together world-class expertise from the Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC), 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, and working around the four core themes of Value, Manufacturing, Assurance and Digital, we are changing the way buildings and infrastructure are designed, manufactured, integrated and connected within our built environment.
We are a catalyst for change. We are driving collaboration to develop, commercialise and promote digital and manufacturing technologies for the construction sector. We are helping build smarter, greener and more efficient buildings much faster and cheaper than we currently do.
Research is helping us understand how the industry needs to change in terms of skills, product standards, capacity and innovation. This is combined with an academic programme to create the security-minded frameworks and rules that will underpin the future digital built environment and grow exports for UK know-how.
We are working 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.
