Centre for Digital Built Britain


The Centre for Digital Built Britain (CDBB) has been housed at the University of Cambridge since September 2017. Uniquely, it is a partnership between government (BEIS) and the University of Cambridge, working in partnership with industry, government, and academia to develop a digital built environment that improves quality of life for all. During that time, it has been supported by several different funding streams, with different stakeholders, focuses and remits. Initially envisaged as an academic bridgehead, it has undergone several changes of emphasis over the past 3 years. It is currently funded as part of the Construction Innovation Hub, leading the digital stream of activities, and via BEIS funding supporting the National Digital Twin programme; and its focus has moved now towards delivery and implementation of digital transformation.

As part of our Construction Innovation Hub programme we desire to lead in the development of information requirements for managing energy and carbon emissions. This focus is built from our work leading on the development of Government Soft Landings and we are looking for a partner to move the capabilities forward in this space.
