Bryden Wood and ZIGURAT join forces to drive innovation in the construction sector

ZIGURAT Institute of Technology, a pioneering institution in online master's and postgraduate programmes in the Built Environment and Tech Management, has announced a strategic collaboration agreement with Bryden Wood, a global leader in integrated design and construction technologies.

The partnership between ZIGURAT and Bryden Wood aims to foster synergies in three key areas: education, talent, and promotion. The goal is to bridge the gap between academia and the industry and lay the foundation for a new generation of professionals with the skills and knowledge needed to drive innovation and sustainability in the construction sector.

Among the agreement's benefits are specific scholarships that allow Bryden Wood professionals to expand their knowledge through ZIGURAT's master's and postgraduate programmes.

In the promotion area, both entities will share knowledge through masterclasses open to the public. The first action of this kind is the masterclass (in Spanish) regarding The Forge, two eight-story office buildings known for using P-DfMA (Platform Design for Manufacturing and Assembly) and being the UK's first carbon-zero (NZEB) commercial construction.

Bryden Wood's innovative project has been recognised with the “Zehnder Award for Best Product, Material, or Nanomaterial Innovation” at the REBUILD 2023 Advanced Architecture Awards.
