Articles and reports

For almost 10 years, we have been publishing reports underpinned by robust research. Our stakeholders number in the thousands and represent many of the professionals and types of organisations working in the built environment. These include architects, architectural technologists, BIM managers, surveyors, building services engineers, structural engineers, landscape architects, manufacturers, contractors and asset managers.

Our understanding of the industry macro environment, such as the emergence of BIM when it was in its infancy, or the issues affecting specification practice, have enabled us to ask meaningful questions to the industry. We have been able to plot trends in the adoption of new technologies or different approaches to procurement.

As well as research findings, our reports include articles from industry experts. These include architects, manufacturers, BIM specialists, legal professionals and government representatives. We are very grateful for these contributions. These reports help to stimulate debate and highlight the importance of making available high quality, structured and standardised information and of collaborative ways of working.
