Advances in Sustainable Structural Materials – An Experimental and Numerical Investigation to Assess the Structural Performance of Timber Concrete Composites

In an age where climate change is at the top of the agenda, engineers have been pushed to find novel techniques of constructing not only for a global population with exponential growth, but in such a manner to ensure sustainably throughout the whole construction process. Read more

Unlocking Sustainability for a Thriving Planet: Exploring Innovations in Circular Construction for a Greener Future

Are you passionate about addressing global challenges such as CO2 emissions, resource scarcity, and climate change? Do you have a keen interest in sustainable construction practices? We invite applications for a PhD position focused on "Circular Construction" at the University of Birmingham, Department of Civil Engineering. Read more

PhD studentship in the development of low carbon construction material made of 100% recycled waste

  Research Group: Institute of Sustainable Built Environment
The School of Energy, Geoscience, Infrastructure and Society (EGIS) at Heriot-Watt University (Scotland, UK) is looking for a PhD candidate to work on engineering experimental development of resource efficient and low carbon building materials made of 100% recycled waste. Read more

The Impact of Climate Change on Timber in Construction

Construction delivery and operation accounts for 34% global final energy use and 37% energy-related carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions whilst extracting finite resources and destroying natural habitats. Read more

Engineered Timber Solutions for Circularity

There is a global market shift towards sustainable construction methods and correspondingly increased demand for mass timber products and systems with an emphasis on cross-laminated and glue-laminated timber forms. Read more

Environmental Impact of Construction on Peatlands

Reducing greenhouse gasses (GHG) emissions is one of the main goals of the 1997 Kyoto Protocol and the Paris Agreement (signed in 2015 during COP21) which seeks to limit the global raise in temperature to 1.5 °C. Read more

Integrating Intelligence: Smart Textiles for Retrofitting and Monitoring Cultural Heritage Buildings

3 Year self funded project. The doctoral project will complete the activities of a European Union project focused on advancing hybrid structural retrofit solutions based on smart textiles with customized structural health monitoring for masonry cultural heritage building envelopes. Read more

Recycled carbon fibre-reinforced concrete

These projects are open to students worldwide, but have no funding attached. Therefore, the successful applicant will be expected to fund tuition fees at the relevant level (home or international) and any applicable additional research costs. Read more

Construction and demolition waste disposal to energy generation: An exploratory study

  Research Group: Centre For Sustainable Environments
Globally, there is an alarming concern about the increasing statistics on the generation of construction and demolition waste. The waste hierarchy – prevent, reduce, recycle, recovery and disposal – which encourages the sustainable use of resources, unwittingly considers waste disposal. Read more

A Model for Adopting Metaverse Technologies for Enhanced Construction Safety Training and Implementation

The construction industry which is vital to the growth of the economy continues to grapple with safety challenges. The industry is notorious for its high-risk working environments, where accidents and injuries occur frequently. Read more
