Who we are

The Digital Built Environment Institute is a not-for profit global organization dedicated to the advancement of people, processes and technology, and the improvement of productivity, efficiency, and sustainability for the built environment and the AECO industry. It is not constrained by discipline, software platform, geography, or politics, but rather it is a unique community of industry participants driving and implementing continuous improvement that does not exist anywhere else, a community run by its members for its members.

Who is DBEI for?

We are a community of AECO/FM industry participants passionate about improving ourselves, our industry, and our environment. Our industry is ripe for change – in productivity, in efficiency, in sustainability – all places where we can make a major difference to our industry and hence our whole planet. We focus on creating answers, not roadblocks, on innovation, not status quo, on communities, not silos. If you love what you do (as we do!), want to be a part of your community - whether locally, regionally, or globally - and want to learn from and contribute to the dialogue about what we do and how we do it, DBEI is for you.

Our Community

We are building a wide array of services and structures to support you. Join us in the DBEI community and not only gain from them but be a part of the discussions that defines them! We are all a part of this community and we need to work and act together to create the industry, and the built environment, that we need now and in the future.

COVID-19 Update

20th May 2020

DBEI has been closely monitoring the COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation around the world. While some parts of our society are beginning to open in baby-steps, none of us know how the situation will develop over the coming months. As such, DBEI has now made the decision to postpone all our 2020 events to 2021 as the well-being of all our partners and participants in our events remains our utmost priority. For new details on each region please visit our event pages. We have also sent communications to all registered attendees, speakers or sponsors for all of our 2020 events.

In the interim, DBEI will be launching several exciting virtual events and webinars in 2020 to continue to deliver the same expertise, insights and knowledge to the AEC industry during these uncertain times. We also have some other exciting initiatives we are working on to continue to provide value to our community, which we look forward to sharing with you all shortly.

We wish to thank you all for your support and appreciate your patience and understanding under the current circumstances and will continue to update our website and the community if there are any changes.
