Digitising Custom Build is a collaborative R&D project that focused on developing digital tools and methods to help those wanting to buy, design, build and live in a custom build home. The tools will help housing professionals and their customers to better manage the planning and design, customisation and sales, onsite construction and post-completion handover stages of new custom build homes.

The technology developed throughout the project aims to unlock creativity and facilitate the growth of a large scale custom build housing market in the UK, such as you see elsewhere in Europe and most of the developed world.

Hear from Michael Kohn, DCB project lead and chief executive of Stickyworld, about the project and what it wants to achieve:

 

The project ended in September 2016 but the technology developed throughout the project will be carried on by the project partners, including at a live site in the Heartlands, Cornwall.

Funded by Innovate UK, this project involves seven partners: NaCSBA, Stickyworld, HTA Design LLP, Axis Design Architects, Facit Homes, Commusoft and Slider Studio.
