Business

Working with industry is at the heart of the work of the School of the Built Environment.

We have a wide range of expertise geared to working with industry to help solve today’s problems and shape the future of the built environment. The School of the Built Environment works with companies ranging from small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) to major international blue chip companies. We have the capacity to work on short projects to meet immediate issues for businesses to long-term major commercial research projects to address strategically important issues.

Key project areas include our work on Building Information Modelling (BIM), energy and buildings and a wide number of other areas associated with the built environment, including procurement, performance measurement and sustainability.

There are a number of ways we deliver enterprise within the University. We undertake consultancy and commercial research, which may be long or short projects carried out on a commercial basis. We engage with companies through the Knowledge Transfer Partnerships scheme funded by Innovate UK. We deliver training and continuous professional development in a number of subject areas on a bespoke basis. We also have state of the art facilities, such as the Thinklab and the Salford Energy House.
