Profile Information

Image of new Moulsecoomb campus plans illustrating Built Environment Research and Enterprise GroupThe Built Environment Research and Enterprise Group undertakes innovative research and technology transfer related to the Built Environment. The group establishes and disseminates best practices to encourage international collaboration and disseminate good practices to both academic and professional community.

The Built Environment group enjoys good links with international institutions in Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia. We have collaborated on major EU funded projects and established a network of stakeholders interested in sustainability of the built environment and exploring good practices. Our group has joined forces with UK businesses through Knowledge Transfer Partnerships to strengthen ties between research and practice. In addition, our group engages with the built environment research community nationally and internationally. We also host a number of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) events for industry.

We have a number of interdisciplinary and multi-disciplinary research themes: Sustainability, Environmental Impact, Energy Efficiency and Building Performance; Construction and project management; Housing, Community, People and Planning; Education in the Built Environment.
