Transforming construction through digital and advanced manufacturing technologies
The Transforming Construction Alliance is bidding to deliver a national core innovation hub to transform the construction sector. The bid is in response to the Innovate UK competition announced in March 2018 as part of the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund (ISCF) Transforming Construction programme.
The core innovation hub will support collaboration across the digital, manufacturing and construction sectors to develop and commercialise digital and manufacturing technologies for the construction sector.
We aim to transform the way buildings are designed, manufactured, integrated and connected within the built environment to create high performing assets that help to deliver the safer, healthier and energy efficient buildings that the UK needs.
The hub will enable collaboration to:
- develop a digitally driven, manufacturing approach to built assets
- improve construction sector productivity
- optimise the whole-life performance of those assets
It will lead a programme to develop standards, tools, designs and regulation methods. These will support a sustainable marketplace for digitally driven manufacturing in construction.
The Transforming Construction Alliance is a partnership between the Building Research Establishment (BRE), the Centre for Digital Built Britain (CDBB) and the Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC). The alliance is supported by a number of influential groups in the construction sector.
This core innovation hub, as part of the wider Transforming Construction programme and the Sector Deal as a whole, represents an opportunity for everyone with an interest in construction and the built environment – industry, research or academic organisations – to get involved.
