Unrivalled testing facilities for the construction industry
Backed by an extraordinary range of facilities BRE prides itself on being able to answer virtually any construction-related testing question. Created in 1921, we were the world’s first dedicated testing and research organisation for the built environment and remain one of the world’s leading, independent centres of knowledge in this field. Our experts test individual materials and products, building systems, engineering structures and whole buildings using both well established methods and bespoke research tests and simulations. Several of the international performance standards for the built environment were developed by BRE, giving us a unique insight into the testing requirements.
