The University of Florida’s College of Design, Construction and Planning (DCP) introduced the Florida Institute for Built Environment Resilience (FIBER) in 2017.

FIBER is positioned to become a key global player in the planning, design, construction and management of built environments and, in addition to developing close interaction with existing faculty, centers and initiatives within DCP, it will seek to build strong collaboration with other colleges and entities at UF and with international centers of excellence.

DCP is uniquely equipped to address the major challenges posed by rapid urbanization, climatic and demographic changes, sustainability imperatives and the need for synergy between the built and natural environments. It houses all the critical disciplines that have an impact on the planning, design, construction, and sustainability of built and natural environments.
