News MTC, CDBB & BRE form Transforming Construction Alliance

The Manufacturing Technology Centre is working with BRE Ltd and the Centre for Digital Built Britain at the University of Cambridge under the name of ‘Transforming Construction Alliance’ to develop a bid for the recently-announced Core Innovation Hub under the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund for the construction sector.


The Hub will be the core of a national network of digital, manufacturing, testing, demonstration and collaboration facilities.

It will provide the capability for radical and disruptive innovation and translation in the design, manufacturing and operation of built assets. It will integrate activities from research to commercialization, acting as a focal point for collaboration and cross-sector knowledge transfer.

Details of the Alliance are at http://transformingconstruction.org.uk/

The MTC is an unparalleled environment for a young engineer wishing to break into the industry. The work that we are doing here today will shape the manufacturing industry for years to come. To be part of that is not only exciting but a real privilege.
