Building 128-129: New labs for DTU Civil Engineering

DTU Civil Engineering conducts research within a number of academic fields central to building processes, buildings, and Constructions.

With the construction of new laboratory facilities next to the department’s existing research facilities, research within two of the department’s research areas—Arctic technology and geotechnics—will be significantly upgraded. The new facilities support the University’s ambition of creating more space in order to develop the research and teaching activities at DTU Civil Engineering and realise potential synergies between all the department’s research areas.

In addition to creating optimum conditions for laboratory-based research within geotechnics and the Arctic research areas, the new buildings will also see the creation of outdoor spaces and zones inside the buildings for academic and social interaction.

The new laboratory facilities are being established in two extensions to Buildings 118 and 119—one east of Building 118 for the Arctic research area, and one in an outdoor space between Buildings 118 and 119 for the geotechnics research area.
