DBEI 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 as a whole. It is not constrained by discipline, software platform, geography, or politics. Become part of a community that does not exist anywhere else, a community run by its members for its members.


DBEI has taken the quality and expertise it is known for in its in-person events and created both curated (DBEI Insight) and open (DISCOVER by DBEI) webinar series to ensure you always have access to the training and knowledge sources that you need, whether you are at an event, at the office, or at home.


A place to find the material you need to support your work. Looking for BIM guidelines for a job in a foreign country? Look here. A survey analysis on drone adoption in construction in South America? This is your place. Research papers on the next generation of tech that will change the way you work in the future? Yep, come here.


Connect with your peers across the industry and across the globe. Learn how other communities work and get answers to your questions from experts in all disciplines, all regions, all levels.


This industry is changing, FAST. Many students are struggling to find the resources and knowledge they need prior to joining the workforce, and academics are also struggling – to keep up with changes in industry, and how to prepare their students for it. The Academy is setup to give you what you need by making connections with industry and expanding the reach and resource pool you can drink from.



Keep up to date with developments in DBEI, in the built environment community, and in the wider global community. Here you will find not just notices about our activities, but also highlights of material from other sources that will help you to keep your finger on the pulse of our industry and our planet.

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.

If you have any concerns or questions about our events please email us at info@dbei.org
