The Building Centre is a hub for the built environment, providing a platform for the exchange and development of knowledge. Established in 1931, the Building Centre is unique in representing and bringing together the different disciplines that form the built environment industry.
Built Environment Trust
The Built Environment Trust is looking to better understand and communicate the social impact our surroundings have on people and communities.
Our mission is to inspire, connect and empower people to improve the quality of our built environment. We recognise that the built environment shapes lives and communities and we are committed to involving all members of society as knowledgeable and active voices in determining how we construct our future.
The Building Centre started life as a building materials bureau at the Architectural Association in 1931, but 158 New Bond Street became the Building Centre’s first home, where it opened its doors to the public on Wednesday 7 September 1932
The Building Centre and the Built Environment Trust are run by a dynamic group of professionals who are passionate about furthering knowledge and understanding of the built environment. Join our team
