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

CDBB was committed to developing tools, guidance, case studies and insight papers to support the adoption of the UK BIM Framework, data-driven decision making and to enable public and private sector digital transformation that improves the social, economic and environmental performance of the built environment. CDBB worked in partnership with BSI, the UK BIM Alliance and others to develop these resources that show how, why and when to adopt innovations designed to improve the way we design, build, operate and integrate the built environment. 

Case studies 

These case studies highlighted various applications of digital ways of working in the built environment, and showcase methods for assessing their impact.
