Annual Symposium 2019

The CBC held its first International Symposium titled Digital Trust in the Built Environment on 6th and 7th June 2019. Held in collaboration with the Scientific and Technical Centre for Building (CSTB) in Paris, the symposium brought together leaders in the field of BIM, Distributed Ledgers, Semantic Web and the Internet of Things (IOT) to ask:

“How can we make blockchain work to transform the production and operation of Smart Environments?”

The CBC presented its progress on its white papers and invited discussion with experts from across industry and academia.

The symposium was held at the CSTB’s offices in Paris. Presentations and media from the symposium will be available shortly.


The CBC's Seminars are strategic, tailored events dealing with topical themes and challenges in the construction industry. The series explores the potential disruption and applications of DLT and blockchain in the built environment. The events bring together leading industry and academic practitioners of the field to share and debate new knowledge.
