Cambridge Centre for Smart Infrastructure and Construction

Transforming infrastructure through smarter information

Bringing buildings to life – smart infrastructure at the Civil Engineering Building Dr Miguel Bravo-Haro

Have the opportunity to virtually visit the Civil Engineering Building – home to the Centre for Smart Infrastructure and Construction, CSIC. Visitors are invited to see how smart infrastructure brings a building to life by engaging with platforms that collect and visualise rich streams of data coming from sensors deployed across the structure which let researchers know if the building is performing as designed.

Enter the web hub where you can surf around and interact with 3D models of instrumented areas of the building and see visualisations of the data. Hear how sensors work and follow the journey of data from where it’s collected to its arrival at the web hub. Researchers will explain the current importance and capabilities of smart buildings, as well as share ideas about the future of our built environment. We hope you will join us in this virtual experience, where visitors are not just a passive audience but an active engaging with the smart technologies bringing the Civil Engineering Building to life. 

The interactive website to be used in the event is already available in the following address:
