Centre Knowledge Exchange (CKE)

The Centre for Knowledge Exchange (CKE) is an enterprise hub based at the School of Built Environment and Engineering that connects Leeds Beckett University research, knowledge and expertise with the regional built environment sector.
CKE builds the School’s business relationships with industry through its seminars, workshops and networking events, improving our course and research offering as well as enhancing employability and opportunities for our graduates. We are supported in our endeavours by a proactive group of sponsors, partners and individual ambassadors, all recognized as regional and national leaders in the construction and related industries.
Employers can benefit from the following range of services. With our collaborative support, you can:

Network across the construction industry through our two principal projects; Constructing Excellence Yorkshire and Humber and thinkBIM.

Constructing Excellence Yorkshire and the Humber

Constructing Excellence in Yorkshire and Humber (CEYH) is the regional partner to Constructing Excellence, the single organisation charged with driving the change agenda in construction, housing and regeneration. 
Our goals are to improve cross sector collaboration, promote positive change and bring together our fragmented industry for the benefit of all involved in construction in the region. We also run the annual Constructing Excellence Yorkshire and Humber Awards rewarding the most innovative and exemplary building practices within our region.

thinkBIM is our School’s award winning network for Building Information Modelling (BIM) and digital construction advocates set up in 2011 to accelerate the adoption of new technologies throughout the built environment industry. Now in our sixth year, we have over 2000 regional and national digital/BIM leaders in our network and continue to promote digitalisation through product showcases, case study focussed events, guest lectures, workshops and seminars. 

We also deliver consultancy and approved CITB BIM training across the region to many businesses, organisations and educational facilities. In addition, thinkBIM also works with the School to explore ways in which digital processes can be embedded into course content.

Green Vision

We promote the green building agenda which considers all aspects of environmental and sustainable building from energy performance through to healthy materials and social and ethical issues for construction organisations and the implications for construction projects. Our regular conferences and seminar events give your organisation the opportunity to be part of the region’s sustainable built environment.
