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 report explores the capabilities required to specify, procure, design, deliver and manage services based on, and embedded in, the built environment in order to optimise effectiveness, efficiency and productivity for their stakeholders, whilst making best use of data and information through-life and across assets and infrastructure. It also looks to identify what new capabilities the UK will need; what research, development and demonstration is necessary to build, deploy and disseminate such capabilities; and where the basis for such development and demonstration exists today. 


The report outlines twenty candidate capabilities for a digital built Britain.
