Laing O'Rourke Centre for Construction Engineering and Technology

Laing O'Rourke Centre - About us

The Centre was launched in 2010 as a partnership between the University of Cambridge Department of Engineering, Cambridge Judge Business School and industry partner Laing O’Rourke, the UK’s largest privately-owned construction company, to fulfil a shared vision of transforming the construction industry through innovation, education and technology.

Integrity, intellectual rigour, innovation and excellence provide our guiding principles and ethos. By harnessing the power of world-leading research and educational excellence, we aim to ensure evidence-based outputs influence policy and industry practice to the benefit of society. The Centre’s reputation continues to grow and we have established the foundations on which this ambition is being realised.
