Accelerating the implementation of advanced manufacturing techniques

August 20, 2019 / Planning, BIM & Construction Today

As BRE’s programme director for the Construction Innovation Hub, I was delighted to attend a recent BRE-hosted industry roundtable on the topic of advanced manufacturing techniques in the built environment. For those not yet familiar with the Hub, it is designed to be a catalyst for change, bringing together world-class expertise from the Manufacturing Technology Centre, Building Research Establishment and the Centre for Digital Built Britain to transform the UK construction industry. Together we have been awarded £72m from UK Research & Innovation’s Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund to change the way buildings and infrastructure are designed, manufactured, integrated and connected within our built environment. With a purpose to drive collaboration to develop, commercialise and promote digital and manufacturing technologies for the construction sector, leading to faster, cheaper, smarter, greener and more efficient buildings.
