Connect with our network of experts for support in up-skilling your business to gain the benefits of Smart Construction

About the Network

The Smart Construction Network has its origins in 2018 following a review by the CLC Innovation in Buildings workstream which identified a need for ‘Centres of Excellence’ to support the uptake of Smart Construction in the housing sector. Since its launch, the Network has grown to include organisations with world-leading expertise in the fields of offsite manufacturing, BIM & digital construction, and high performance buildings.

The Network aspires to be the conduit through which expert knowledge, innovative ideas and best practice can be shared. Its mission is to encourage the uptake of Smart Construction across the whole sector, including housing and in doing so, support the journey of transformation towards a more modern, productive and sustainable construction sector.

Collaboration is the cornerstone of the Smart Construction Network. In order to deliver on its mission, the Network must continue to grow, bringing together experts and innovators to support the construction industry to make full use of digital technologies and industrialised manufacturing techniques to improve productivity, minimise whole life cost, improve sustainability and maximise user benefits.
