Our research influences the development, construction, and management of the built environment around the world. We research energy, technology, building performance, Building Information Modeling (BIM), forecasting, risk management, and many other areas that will improve the lifecycle and processes of the built environment.


The School of Building Construction supports two labs: the CONECTech Lab, and the ESBE-Economics of the Sustainable Built Environment Lab.
