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

This physical and digital book celebrates the extraordinary progress we have made with our partners in industry, academia and government in creating a solid foundation for a digital built Britain. 

CDBB’s overarching role was to bring people together, to convene, connect and coordinate across the whole of the built environment. We did so with energy and commitment. As a result, we have radically increased the UK’s digital-built ambition, produced resources and training that have grown global capability in Building Information Modelling (BIM) and digital twins, and undertaken key, foundational work to deliver the National Infrastructure Commission’s recommendation to create a National Digital Twin (NDT) of the built environment.

Our Artefacts: Our Stories is not a comprehensive account of our work. Rather it aims to capture something of the essence of CDBB through a set of ‘artefacts’, each introduced by its own curator. The stories presented should provide a sense of both what we achieved and the spirit that drove us.
