Buildings client group (BCG)


[edit] Background

The Buildings Client Group (BCG) was established in January 2020 by the Centre for Digital Built Britain (CDBB) as a partner in the Construction Innovation Hub. It is an independent member's group for cross-sector leaders, directors and decision-makers from the property sector who are engaged in digital transformation.

The group aims to connect individuals who are leading the way with digital adoption in their organisation, provide a secure forum for discussion, demonstrate good practice and share real-world case studies to stimulate effective changes across the built environment.

We look forward to helping the group realise its potential, continuing to drive the digital transformation of the sector.”

Chair of the Buildings Client Group and Head of Design Innovation and Property Solutions at Landsec, Neil Pennell, said: “The BCG has grown and developed over our time at CDBB and become a lively and engaging community of individuals who are passionate about the digitisation of the sector and leading digital adoption within their organisation. With our membership comprising both public and private sector clients representing a wide range of building types from across the UK, we provide a unique and secure forum for discussion; demonstrating good practice and sharing real-world case studies to inform and lead the way. We are always ready to welcome new members who are keen to proactively contribute towards us achieving our collective goals. Please do get in touch if you’d like to know more.”
