The CIC would like to extend its thanks to the visitors and researchers who participated in the tour of the CIC labs on October 16, 2023.

The University of Alberta’s President and Vice-Chancellor, Bill Flanagan, was joined by the Vice-President of Research and Innovation, Dr. Aminah Robinson Fayek, and the Dean of the Faculty of Engineering, Dr. Simaan AbouRizk, for an in-depth look at some of the CIC’s ongoing projects.

During the tours of the CIC lab, the Nasseri School of Building Science Lab, and the I. F. Morrison Structures Lab, researchers presented their work on exoskeletons for construction workers, biosensors used to improve safety and productivity on construction sites, virtual reality environments and digital twins, construction robotic applications, an environmental chamber for material testing, 3D printing for construction, and large-scale electro-hydraulic testing.
