Twenty-seven lecturers from thirteen colleges across 3 disciplines participated in the project and, through this medium, FUTUREquipped participants were introduced to the latest developments in digitally enabled health and care and construction practices. They were then asked to collaboratively develop new teaching modules to integrate learnings from this pilot into respective college courses.


Smart Housing brings together the domains of technology-enabled health and care, augmented/ virtual reality, advanced construction, off-site technologies, sensor technology, and data.


DHI and the Construction Scotland Innovation Centre (CSIC) acted as hubs to deliver the programme. Digital, robotic and off-site construction technologies were available in CSIC’s Innovation Factory in Hamilton, whilst the DHI gave the project participants access to their Demonstration and Simulation Environment (DSE). The DSE allowed participants to test and showcase emerging health and care technologies, and simulate the integration of these technologies and data flows.
