Advanced Infrastructure Materials Laboratory

Advanced Infrastructure Materials Laboratory

Located in the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department at Imperial College London, the Advanced Infrastructure of Materials Laboratory has state of the art equipment to undertake fundamental analysis, processing, imaging and testing of infrastructure materials.

Researchers will be able to use advanced techniques that are not readily available for infrastructure materials research in the UK.
The research will inform decisions on the challenges for infrastructure materials by ensuring better performance and durability, delivering lower environmental impact and a lower lifecycle cost as well as ensuring materials are used efficiently and adhere to circular economy principles.

The facility has been up and running since Spring 2019.
