Construction Information Technology Laboratory

Welcome to the Construction Information Technology (CIT) Laboratory at the University of Cambridge. The laboratory is a state-of-the-art facility that is set up for sensing, information retrieval, and knowledge discovery from infrastructure data. The research projects at the laboratory focus on the extraction and analysis of unstructured and semi-structured data, such as images, video, and the geometry of construction projects. The laboratory also engages in education, outreach and engagement activities that relate to its mission. This includes demonstrations for graduate and undergraduate students, hands-on activities for secondary education, student experiments for class projects, and others.

The CIT Lab is part of the Laing O'Rourke Centre for Construction Engineering Technology and is headed up by Prof Ioannis Brilakis in the Civil Engineering Building, Engineering Department, University of Cambridge.
