BRE (Building Research Establishment) is an independent, research-based consultancy, testing and training organisation, operating in the built environment and associated industries.

BRE's SiteSmart was launched at Digital Construction Week in October 2016, where BRE was Digital Knowledge Partner. It provides an information and resource hub for smart construction professionals, giving access to a growing set of digital tools and information at anytime, from anywhere, to help improve performance.

It is a web brand encompassing BRE’s range of digital tools; SmartWaste, YellowJacket and the recently launched process improvement tool, in addition to information and links to training, publications and industry-wide statistics. The SiteSmart team is also working to add more new tools.

SiteSmart will help organisations monitor, and report on health, safety, process and environmental information, enabling them to continuously improve, leading to changes in behaviour and increased project profitability.

BRE’s Director of Building Futures Group, Simon Cross said, “Safety, knowledge, efficiency, and sustainability are the heart of any successful construction project. By bringing all these aspects together online accessible from anywhere at any given time, we aim to maximise progress and opportunities for our clients. Smart technology is already here, and we are helping the industry to use it in a smart way."
