Annual Research Conference

Since 2011, The University of Washington’s Center for Education and Research in Construction (CERC) has created a venue to highlight research and its relevance for pressing issues facing the Construction industry. Looking deeply at the frontiers in technology and evolving practices, CERC and our partners, demonstrate the application and benefits of applied research for participating organizations.

With informative sessions on health and safety, heavy civil projects, sustainability, AR/VR technology, and technology and teams (BIM-FM and other data sharing practices)- this year’s event will deliver timely information industry participants can put to practice right when they return to the office Monday morning.


Each conference highlights different important work and valuable research. Much of that information is available in conference proceedings, papers, poster and presentation downloads.
