Infrastructure


Sustainable and properly planned infrastructure improves our transportation networks, roads, community buildings, water and waste water supplies and access to power.

Infrastructure is Essential.

Infrastructure is essential to the economic, social and political fabric of communities.

Sustainable and properly planned infrastructure improves our transportation networks, roads, community buildings, water and waste water supplies and access to power.

This group of researchers is working closely with government and industry partners to make great strides in safe, sustainable, and eco-friendly structures.

Challenges: Eco-friendly and sustainable buildings, restoring and improving infrastructure, improving building integrity to protect against disasters
