Who We Are

The MIT Concrete Sustainability Hub, CSHub, is a dedicated interdisciplinary team of researchers from several departments across MIT working on concrete and infrastructure science, engineering, and economics since 2009. The MIT CSHub brings together leaders from academia, industry, and government to develop breakthroughs using a holistic approach that will achieve durable and sustainable homes, buildings, and infrastructure in ever more demanding environments.

The mission of the CSHub is to develop breakthroughs that will achieve sustainable and durable homes, buildings, and infrastructure. We approach this by conducting research to reduce the impact of producing and using concrete, and to develop tools to support infrastructure decisions: life-cycle environmental, cost, and hazard resistance.
