Digital Built Britain Housing Network

The Centre for Digital Built Britain (CDBB) commissioned CCHPR to establish a network of academics, practitioners, policy makers and government to determine the key areas of inquiry in relation to residential housing and DBB. An evidence base was established in order to scope out a research programme designed to meet the needs of UK plc in delivering housing in a digital built Britain.

The network built on CCHPR’s earlier research for CDBB which looked at the need for innovation in construction and experimentation with new forms of housing delivery such as modular housing. Our report reflected the ‘state of the nation’ and summarised the opportunities and barriers to the uptake of digital tools, standards and processes (Building Information Modelling) in innovations found in the UK house building sector.

The objectives of the network were to facilitate dialogue between key stakeholders in relation to the construction, management, servicing and lived experience of housing in the development of DBB; to determine the key questions that should be the priority for investigation; to scope out the existing literature in relation to these questions; to identify the gaps in knowledge and gaps in capabilities; and to use this evidence base to scope out a research programme to meet the needs of UK plc in delivering affordable, sustainable and inclusive housing in a DBB.
