New National Research Facility for Infrastructure Sensing in Cambridge

last modified Sep 25, 2019 03:25 PM
The new civil engineering building on the West Cambridge campus has officially opened on 24 Sep 2019. It houses the civil engineering division of the Engineering Department and the state of the art National Research Facility for Infrastructure Sensing

The new Civil Engineering Building, located on the West Cambridge campus, is designed to enable University researchers, industry and other academic institutes to work together on joint research programmes.

The building has twelve world-class, state-of-the-art laboratories focusing on a wide variety of civil engineering disciplines, including sensor development, structures, geomechanics and construction.

In addition it houses the new National Research Facility for Infrastructure Sensing (NRFIS) which is part of the national UK Collaboratorium for Research in Infrastructure and Cities (UKCRIC).

NRFIS will support research in the application of advanced sensor technologies to the monitoring of the UK’s existing and future infrastructure, to provide insights and data to inform the design, construction, operation and management of the UK’s infrastructure and enable better decision-making.

It builds on the University’s track record of delivering innovative sensor advancements through CSIC, the CamBridgeSens research network, and the Centres for Doctoral Training in Sensor Technologies for a Healthy and Sustainable Future (Sensor CDT) and Future Infrastructure and Built Environment: Resilience in a Changing World (FIBE2).
