Bringing buildings to life: Smart infrastructure at the Civil Engineering Building

2:00pm-3:00pm on Saturday 3 April

Times shown are in GMT (UTC +0) up to the 27th March. For events on or after 28th March times are in BST (UTC +1).

Curious minds of all ages will 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.

All ideas for the web hub are very welcome! – some work in progress:
