ProBE (Centre for the Study of the Production of the Built Environment), is a multi-faculty research centre spanning Westminster Business School (WBS) and the faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment (ABE).

Established in 2010, ProBE has a rich programme of research and related activities, including research projects, oral history, film, exhibitions, seminars and other events. It provides a focus for interdisciplinary and international activity related to the production of the built environment as a social process. 

ProBE is inclusive, embracing those actively engaged through funded projects and publications. Integrated cross-faculty research activities are made possible by the proximity of the two faculties on the same central London campus. 

ProBE forms an umbrella, providing a basis for research administration, a website, and a forum for debate and discussion.
