BEAM Research

‌BEAM Research Centre seeks to explore the social, environmental and economic interdependencies of sustainable built environments in the context of global climate change and natural resource utilisation.  

Sustainable urban environment

Water treatment research

Focussing on the development, use and revitalisation of built assets to protect the environment and to support the sustainable social and economic development of communities, BEAM research focuses on three thematic areas of recognised strengths and world-leading impacts: 

  • Sustainable Cities & Communities
  • Construction Project Risk and Value Management 
  • Building Resilience and Environmental Impact

Since 2017 Glasgow Caledonian University has aligned its research strategy with the United Nation's Sustainable Development Goals.  The three thematic areas of the BEAM Research Centre highly align with a number of the SDGs.  BEAM aims to develop and measure its research and outputs against the targets and indicators of the goals, demonstrating how its research contributes to each goal and acknowledging where further progress is necessary.
