Center for
Infrastructure
Renewal

Texas and the United States have significant infrastructure needs, requiring innovative solutions to upgrade aging roadways and pipelines, as well as the national power grid.

The Center for Infrastructure Renewal will house researchers who are developing advanced and sustainable materials and structural systems that will reduce cost and extend infrastructure life, safety, resiliency and durability.

Technology and new materials developed in the CIR will lower infrastructure construction costs, increase the lifespan of these materials and perform the repairs in a shorter timeframe across the state and nation. When complete, the testing facility will be one of the largest in the world, connecting researchers and experts from the field so that they can work together to find solutions to challenging infrastructure needs.

After a nationwide search, Dr. Bjorn Birgisson was named director of the CIR. He is a Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station (TEES) Distinguished Research Professor and a professor in the Zachry Department of Civil Engineering at Texas A&M University.

The CIR will be located in on the new RELLIS Campus, and is expected to be completed in 2018.

The world-class facility will feature laboratories and testing facilities equipped with the latest technology dedicated to:

  • Pavement Materials
  • Corrosion
  • Materials Evaluation
  • Electric Power Grid
  • Pipeline System Integrity
  • Infrastructure Systems

The CIR is a shared facility of the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station and the Texas A&M Transportation Institute.
