We have a wealth of experience in supporting suppliers and clients in delivering sustainable construction solutions and recognise that The Supply Chain School is a valuable support network and are looking forward to contribute to it…"
David Richardson, Director of Centre for Sustainable Products
is an independent and impartial, research-based consultancy, testing and training organisation, offering expertise in every aspect of the built environment and associated industries. We help clients create better, safer and more sustainable products, buildings, communities and businesses - and we support the innovation needed to achieve this.
We were set up in 1921 as the Building Research Station (BRS). This became the Building Research Establishment (BRE) in 1972. Since being privatised in 1997, we have called ourselves simply ‘BRE’.
The BRE Group of companies is wholly owned by the BRE Trust, a charitable organisation representing interests across the built environment sector. The Trust’s objectives are to advance knowledge through research and education in all matters concerning the built environment.
BRE’s Watford Innovation Park is a flagship development that embraces a network of existing and future Parks in the UK and around the world. The Innovation Park in Ebbw Vale, Wales is already an important innovation demonstrator. It will be joined by Innovation Parks in Scotland, Brazil, China, Canada and the US, which BRE is now in the process of developing. The aim of the network is to provide a bridge for exchanging knowledge, to enable collaboration and unlock exporting potential.
