Our research focuses on the sustainability side of construction, building materials and how waste-resources can be best managed as construction and building materials.

Our past and current projects include aspects of structural health monitoring, carbon nanotubes reinforced concrete production, development of a low CO2 footprint concrete, hydraulic barriers and the holistic remediation of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) affected soils, waters and debris.

Within the overlying aim of sustainability, we also provide research support across a broad range of industries:

  • Extending the service life of built infrastructure
  • Novel mitigation strategies to manage degradation of infrastructure
  • Advanced materials solutions to maximise life of new structures

The team exists of a mixture of experts in the field of civil engineering, concrete technology, clay mineralogy, physical chemistry and environmental engineering which enable us to tackle these highly multidiscipline research projects.
