Finance; Design; Construction; Management & use; and Demolition / Redevelopment.
Grounded in the Framework for Dignity in the Built Environment (“DxD Framework”), the programme

practice in specific building and infrastructure projects
• Action research and education, including through the global research, narrative, and advocacy

The programme is poised for a step-change in its reach, audience, engagement and impact.
