Centre for Digital Built Britain

 

Prof Andy Neely, Director of the Centre for Digital Built Britain is speaking at an open Cambridge Network event on how a digital economy may affect the construction and building industry in the future.

The Centre for Digital Built Britain is a partnership between the Department of Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy and the University of Cambridge to deliver a smart digital economy for infrastructure and construction for the future and transform the UK construction industry's approach to the way we plan, build, maintain and use our social and economic infrastructure. 
 
Digital technology is changing the way we plan, build, maintain and use our social and economic infrastructure. Over the next decade this technology will combine with the internet of things (providing sensors and other information),  advanced data analytics, data driven manufacturing and the digital economy to enable us to plan new infrastructure more effectively, build it at lower cost and operate and maintain it more efficiently.  
 
Digital Built Britain seeks to digitise the entire life-cycle of our built assets finding innovative ways of delivering more capacity out of our existing social and economic infrastructure, dramatically improving the way these assets deliver social services to deliver improved capacity and better public services. Above all, it will enable citizens to make better use of the infrastructure we already have.
