BRE is an international, multi-disciplinary, building science organisation with a mission to improve buildings and infrastructure through research and knowledge generation, and their application.

BRE employs more than 600 people in the UK, China, India, the Middle East and the USA who are committed to building a better world together.

Our products, services, standards and qualifications are applied in more than 80 countries, enabling our customers to make a positive difference to the built environment.

BRE has also established an Innovation Park Network, featuring full-scale demonstration buildings, to inform sustainable development at a global level and stimulate innovation in the built environment. With parks established in the UK and China, and further facilities being developed in Brazil and Canada, the Innovation Park Network is unique in its approach, global reach and impact.

We're owned by a charity called the BRE Trust, which delivers one of the largest programmes of built environment education and research for the public good.
