The BCEE and CIISE Departments houses several laboratories that support research and training in the areas outlined in the mandate of CICIEM.

CFI Construction Automation Lab

EV 11.255

This lab has a variety of Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) and automated construction monitoring equipment and hardware devices. This include UAVs, a wide range of wireless sensors and IoT devices, ground penetrating radar (GPR), 3D laser scanners, infrared and digital cameras, radiofrequency identification (RFID) capabilities (RFID printer, and hand-held receivers), and software systems for decision support, planning and scheduling, cost estimating and computer simulation including discrete event simulation, agent-based simulation and system dynamics.

Cyber-Physical Construction and Infrastructure Systems Lab

EV 8.415

This lab has a variety of PTZ and spherical cameras, several real-time location tracking systems, virtual reality systems, and a wide range of software for modeling and simulating construction and infrastructure systems.

CFI Structures and Infrastructure Testing Laboratory


This upgraded lab is equipped with state-of-the art structural testing facility. The facility is capable of testing different structural elements and assemblages, including columns, bridge girders, frames, and walls that are made of concrete, masonry, steel, or their combinations. The testing mode could be static, cyclic, dynamic (to simulate wind or seismic forces), or fatigue (to represent multi-million cyclic loads from traffic on bridges).

CFI Structure Safety Simulation Labs

EV building

The computer labs are equipped with software packages covering the following research areas: Nonlinear Finite Element Analysis; Simulation of response of structures to dynamic and blast excitations; Seismic hazard simulations. Specifically, the labs have the following specialized software: ABAQUS, ANSYS, HyperWorks, OpenSees, Perform3D, VicTor, and others. In addition, the lab has highly specialized equipment, instrumentation, and software packages for on-site monitoring, non-destructive assessment, and field measurements for various existing infrastructures.
