CONECTech Lab: Enhancing the Construction Environment through Cognitive Technologies
Directed by Dr. Javier Irizarry, CONECTech Labʼs mission is to establish the framework for developing next generation technology enhanced solutions to construction environment problems by incorporating the cognitive processes of the human component of construction operations. Sample research projects include:
• Risk Perception of Construction Operators
• Constructability of Transportation Infrastructure
• Technology Enhanced Training and Construction Education
• Situation Awareness in Construction Operations

Construction Information Technology Laboratory
As director of the Construction Information Technology Laboratory, Dr. Ioannis Brilakis studies computing and information technologies for the architecture, engineering, construction, and facilities management industries (AEC/FM).

Economics of Sustainable Built Environment Lab
As director of the Economics of Sustainable Built Environment Lab, Dr. Baabak Ashuri will continue his research focus in strategic risk management, decision analysis, project finance, and investment analysis under uncertainty.
