Transforming construction through digital and advanced manufacturing technologies
The Transforming Construction Alliance brings together the Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC), BRE (Building Research Establishment) and the University of Cambridge’s Centre for Digital Built Britain (CDBB). It combines expertise in digital, manufacturing and construction technology, as well as a track record in supporting policy development and industry change.
The alliance has a UK-wide network of existing facilities, resources and cross-sector partners, and is supported by several influential groups in the construction sector.
Following a nationwide competition, Innovate UK has awarded £72 million to the alliance to deliver a national Core Innovation Hub, through the Transforming Construction programme.
The aim of the Core Innovation Hub is to transform the way buildings and infrastructure are designed, manufactured, integrated and connected within the built environment to create high-performing buildings and infrastructure with strong levels of safety, quality and energy performance.
The hub will support collaboration across sectors to develop, commercialise and promote digital and manufacturing technologies for the construction sector. It will collaborate closely with other initiatives that are being funded through the Government’s Transforming Construction challenge programme.
As part of the wider Transforming Construction programme and the Sector Deal as a whole, the Core Innovation Hub represents an opportunity for everyone with an interest in construction and the built environment – industry, research or academic organisations – to get involved.
