Leading on research for a more sustainable built environment
Research - Slide 2
Research that shapes the future
Our aspiration is to deliver world-leading, co-created research that shapes built environments of the future, delivering global impact to support the creation of sustainable, resilient buildings that embrace ideas to improve the wellbeing and wider cultural lives of all citizens.
Built environment expertise
Our academics have breadth and depth of expertise across the entire range of built environment and property disciplines. Individually, they expand our understanding of the world; collectively and collaboratively, they deliver analysis that addresses the major challenges in the delivery of a sustainable built environment.

Inclusive future-built environments
We acknowledge the new fast-changing realities in our towns and cities. Disruptive innovations, largely relying on the significant advance in digital technologies, have already made significant strides towards achieving sustainable, resilient, and more inclusive future-built environments.
Generating concepts and solutions
We therefore position ourselves in a way to best deliver against these new realities. Our staff are poised to generate concepts and solutions that are designed to create ideas, digital tools and new infrastructure, that all work together to deliver solutions for new forms of living. In doing so, we aim to address the UN Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDGs).

Sustainable Built Environment and Property Research Centre
Our research centre places the UN Sustainable Development Goal 11 and 12 – of sustainable cities and communities; and of responsible consumption and production – as our central focus.
Achieving a better Built Environment is increasingly synonymous with a sustainable Built Environment as we address:
The reality of climate change
The challenges and decline of infrastructure
The emergence of the ecology of cities
The challenge of governance
The economic turmoil
The need for a true circular economy
The impacts of urbanisation
