Based on the long term successful cooperation and the combined research and development strength, Cardiff University, Dalian University of Technology and China Communications Construction Company (CCCC) jointly set up a BIM for Smart Engineering R&D Innovation Centre (BIMSE) in 2019. BIMSE works with a wide range of UK and China industry partners, including buildingSMART international, China State Construction Engineering Group (CSCEG), Royal HaskoningDHV, BSI and other well recognized academic partners. Within Cardiff University, an interdisciplinary research group (Smart Engineering Research and Development Group) has been set up to facilitate the joint R&D activities.
