Center for Infrastructure Renewal

The 138,000 square-foot Center for Infrastructure Renewal (CIR) is a state-of-the-art research center that is a leading source for developing transformative infrastructure solutions. The center, which was funded by the Texas Legislature in 2015, provides the facilities and the multidisciplinary research environments for attracting significant cross-industry and government agency participation, as well as educating the 21st century workforce needed to build and operate this new infrastructure. The research conducted at the CIR improves the safety, security, longevity, efficiency, performance, resiliency, financial feasibility and sustainability of state and national infrastructure.
