The Digital Building Heritage Group (DBGH) is a research cluster at De Montfort University (DMU) in the UK which provides expertise in digital technologies, and the techniques for using them to understand and interpret historic buildings and the artefacts and people associated with them. We work with a range of organisations including museums, businesses, heritage centres, community heritage groups, local government and the media on many kinds of projects that focus on historic buildings. We have expertise in architectural history, conservation, historic interiors, exhibition design, laser scanning and surveying, mobile app development, 3D digital reconstruction, Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR), digital animation and visualisation, 3D printing of museum exhibits and models , architectural design and adaptive re-use of historic buildings. Because we are part of a large, creative and international university we can quickly draw in other in-house expertise that exists within our organisation as required. We are fully involved in undergraduate and post-graduate teaching and often employ our recent graduates as research assistants.
