About the LaRTIC

and its mission


The objective of the LaRTIC is to develop, evaluate and transfer the most advanced and suitable technologies to improve the productivity, the efficiency and the quality of construction projects.

The laboratory's research axes revolve around 4 main topics:

  1. Digital models and CDE; 
  2. Construction 4.0;
  3. Construction simulation;
  4. 4D printing in construction.
The laboratory is directed by Professor Conrad Boton and relies on a network of local expertise and international partners.

ETS is no longer the only player in the transformation of the industry, but it intends to maintain its leadership in research focused on the challenges of this transformation. "
