The history of the changing status and research remits of the Building Research Establishment over 76 years is described as a dynamic response to changing government policies, industry needs and funding arrangements. The recent government decision to change BRE's status to a private sector body is briefly described. The move into the private sector and the creation of the Foundation for the Built Environment has created the opportunity to modify the existing organizational structure of BRE and identify emerging research, products, services and consultancy functions for the future.

Il faut considerer le changement de statut et les differents mandats de recherche du Building Research Establishment (BRE) au cours des 76 dernieres annees comme une reaction dynamique aux differentes politiques gouvernementales, aux besoins de l'industrie et aux mecanismes de financement. Dans cet article, l'auteur explique brievement la decision du gouvernement de transformer le BRE en une entite privee. Cette transformation et la creation d'une fondation pour le cadre bati (Foundation of the Built Environment) sont autant d'occasions de modifier l'organisation actuelle du BRE et de recenser les nouveaux axes de recherche, les produits, les services et les fonctions consultatives de l'avenir.
