The Center for Education and Research in Construction (CERC) develops responsive scholarship with broad impact on people and practices from project planning to operations.

CERC Labs work on several interrelated streams of research including Safety and Health, Project Delivery and Management, Virtual Design and Construction, Infrastructure Development, Collaboration and Sustainable Built Environments.

Alongside industry partners, CERC faculty and students champion construction education and applied research.  Expertise is used to translate knowledge into an unparalleled construction education and distinguished training programs that forge tomorrow’s leading construction professionals.


CERC is home to multiple research projects, robust Labs and CM courses.  Areas of inquiry and study range from performance issues, such as materials and structural analysis, to project management, including estimating and risk analysis, to emerging technologies including green building and design.


The Center for Education and Research in Construction counts, among its many resources, a cutting-edge facility housing labs, classrooms and meeting spaces to support research in virtual construction, methods and materials, and construction education.
