CSIC is already making substantial impact on industry by delivering a wide range of new technologies designed to overcome specific engineering challenges and provide valuable information, cost savings and a sustainable and whole-life approach to design, delivery and maintenance to asset owners. CSIC is currently working on many of the most challenging and significant engineering projects in the country including Crossrail, National Grid Power Tunnels and Staffordshire Alliance.
CSIC technologies, including fibre optic strain measurement, UtterBerry ultra low-power wireless sensor motes, CSattAR photogrammetric monitoring and vibration energy harvesting devices, have been applied to a considerable variety of structures.
Our highly effective deployment teams, which includes secondees from industry, tests, develops and improves the latest sensor technologies on live construction sites and existing infrastructure including Crossrail, National Grid, the Royal Mail Tunnel and CERN tunnels, masonry arches at London Bridge and railway bridges in Staffordshire.
Working with industry on live projects allows CSIC to deploy emerging technologies in order to accelerate the route to technology readiness stage. Our technologies are currently deployed at over 30 sites.
