Sustainable Infrastructure
Our research explores sustainable approaches to modern infrastructures.

As cities become larger, more complex and increasingly interconnected, the infrastructure that supports them
plays a critical role in enabling and driving this transformation. Our research explores sustainable approaches
to design, construct, manage and operate modern infrastructure systems and structures.

Focus areas

Decarbonised infrastructure
Supporting industry and government to transition to a decarbonised, circular infrastructure industry.
Green transport systems
Policy development that reduces greenhouse gas emissions across personal, public and freight transport systems.
Resilient infrastructure
We are working with the industry to ensure critical infrastructure continues to operate during weather extremes, such as fires, floods and storms.
Infrastructure in the geosphere
Exploration of new opportunities for developing underground infrastructure to meet the growing demands of urban society.
People-focused planning
Infrastructure exists to serve society. Our research explores ways infrastructure planning can be people-focused while promoting sustainability.
Infrastructure and climate change
Developing predictive modelling and analytic capabilities to understand how infrastructure will respond to a changing climate.
Recycled geomaterials
Developing applications for recycled waste, such as crushed glass in place of natural sand, to reduce the impact of resource heavy construction.
The timber alternative
The Centre for Future Timber Structures is working with industry to drive the future development and application of timber in the built environment.
Sustainable concrete
Integration of waste products into concrete mixes lead to a sustainable building material with reduced carbon footprint.
Reusable structures
Novel research into reversible connections for timber structures will enable the future development of re-usable structures.
Advanced manufacturing
Streamlining the design-to-fabrication procedure using computer-aided design and construction methods.
Infrastructure and food security
Design and construction of infrastructure to enable sustainable fish farming and secure food chains.
