What do we do?
Our facilities allow researchers and construction professionals from across the world to develop and to explore innovative building materials and constructive systems.
Part of the BRE CICM centre, our research aims to study properties of low carbon, low impact construction materials that will make a real difference to the future of construction, both in the UK and worldwide.
The HIVE is a facility designed to support research into construction materials and is the first building project being developed at the Building Research Park.
This Engineering and Physical Sciences Council (EPSRC) funded project (EP/K04039/1 and EP/L005689/1) is being led by Dr Mike Lawrence from the BRE Centre for Innovative Construction Materials in the Department of Architecture & Civil Engineering.
