Research

Since the visit by the Chinese Premier Li Keqiang to BRE’s Headquarters in 2011, we have been introduced to many important organisations in China and formed partnerships with national and local Government, developers and universities.

Our vision is to ‘build a better world together’ by creating a collaborative programme of research and knowledge exchange on exemplar projects and developments that help raise standards and best practice in the built environment in both China and the UK.

In April 2016, BRE China was officially launched in Shenzhen to further strengthen our partnerships and relationships and broaden our reach across the country with a range of educational programmes aimed at improving our buildings, homes and communities for the benefit of people, the environment and the economy.
