Centre for Digital Built Britain completed its five-year mission and closed its doors at the end of September 2022

This website remains as a legacy of the achievements of our five-year foundational journey towards a digital built Britain

Construction is an important sector in every economy. Transforming an entire sector is a large-scale change management operation, involving the public sector and industry; and standards bodies and academia, with potential change across public policy, working practices, guidance, internal regulations and projects. The questions of ‘why, how, who, what and when’ must be answered before the process of change can begin. 

There are three distinct levels to transformation: central policy, public sector clients and the private sector. The CDBB International team’s work is focused at policy level to create public leadership and provide public policy support that drives national change. This change brings meaningful transformation across both public clients for social and economic infrastructure - such as schools, hospitals, roads and railways (delivery and operation) - and the private sector. Capacity must be built gradually in both sectors in order to succeed.
