Bradford Centre for Sustainable Environments

Heavy Structures Laboratory.

We are here to assist you in adapting to climate change and other major environmental challenges in efficient and sustainable ways.

Based within the Schools of Engineering, Social and International Studies and Life Sciences, we are leading on interdisciplinary approaches that integrate technological, organisational and societal solutions to meet contemporary environmental challenges.

The Centre is home to a dedicated team of specialists, and champions two main themes, Environment and Infrastructure. These research themes address directly the 21st century challenges facing the civil engineering profession – reducing waste and developing more sustainable construction materials. To address these challenges the Centre’s expertise focuses upon the linked themes of composite construction, smart infrastructure and environmental impact.
