The Centre for Digital Built Britain is a partnership between the Department of Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy and the University of Cambridge to deliver a smart digital economy for infrastructure and construction for the future and transform the UK construction industry’s approach to the way we plan, build, maintain and use our social and economic infrastructure.

As part of the Construction Innovation Hub, the Centre for Digital Built Britain is working with four leading University of Cambridge academics, Dr Gemma Burgess, Prof. Michael Barrett, Dr Ajith Parlikad and Dr Mohamed Zaki, to coordinate, collaborate and champion a national, multidisciplinary research community. Announcing the funding in 2018, Business and Industry Minister Richard Harrington stressed the importance of the Construction Innovation Hub in galvanising the UK construction sector to revolutionise infrastructure through digitisation and innovation, and, through industry-wide collaboration, to transform the way buildings and infrastructure are designed, manufactured, integrated and connected within the built environment.
