The Center for Sustainable Infrastructure serves as an innovative technical resource, knowledge center and educational provider addressing critical issues related to sustainable infrastructure, whether it is at the local, regional, national or global level. The CSI extends its focus to range from materials to full-scale structural systems, including the development of new, novel materials and structural systems as well as the short- and long-term performance of materials and structural systems to service extreme loading conditions and hazards. The CSI utilizes a cradle-to-grave approach to infrastructure, including pre-project planning, design, construction, maintenance, renovation/rehabilitation, decommissioning/deconstruction and reuse.
