Advanced Infrastructure Materials and Manufacturing Lab
One thing we know for sure: the future of infrastructure will not look like its past. The main strength of this cross-disciplinary lab is to bridge the recent advancements in additive manufacturing technologies with large-scale structures. The Advanced Infrastructure Materials & Manufacturing (AIMM) Lab focuses on developing advanced, symbiotic and conjoint materials and manufacturing methods, including applications of robotics and 3-D printing in additive manufacturing technology. More efficient than conventional construction methods, these new methods can yield less material waste, greater quality and better on-site safety. The AIMM lab is shifting not only how infrastructure is constructed today, but also transforming the way infrastructure is designed and built in the future from beginning to end.
