Centre for Digital Built Britain


CDBB is 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 works 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. If you would like to develop a case study with CDBB please contact
