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

InSAR (radar) imagery taken by satellites can be used to monitor millimetre-scale movements of built environment assets over time. Combining a range of monitoring technologies enables assessment of new generation techniques (such as satellite monitoring) and comparison with more traditional monitoring. InSAR applications can be assessed for future use and identify opportunities to embed new practice into current methods.

This project will take advantage of a key potential benefit of this process to better understand the performance of our structures, by creating robust and reliable data that can leverage whole-life value of an asset or portfolio of assets by informing more efficient asset management.
