Centre for Innovative and Collaborative Construction Engineering


Having a centre with a focus directly on the built environment helps bring the industry together in a way which doesn't always happen. The CICE plays this role well and we believe it is well placed to continue leading the research.
Colin McKinnon, Innovation Director, BuroHappold Ltd
Because the CICE brings together many different construction related businesses through the EngD cohorts, and the wider community, CICE is ideally placed to help the industry develop to meet future needs.
Andrew Cripps, Regional Director, AECOM.
We have no problem recommending the services of the CICE to any construction organisation that has the desire to improve the knowledge within their organisation.
Charlie Law, Head of Environmental Management, BAM Construct UK Ltd.
The School of Civil and Building Engineering is proud to host the CICE Engineering Doctorate Centre and I am delighted that the hard work of our Research Engineers has been directly benefitting the UK construction industry for over 13 years.
Professor Tony Thorpe, Loughborough University
