What We Do

The Camins Maakers Laboratory was born in 2015 within the premises of the former Laboratory of experimental analysis of scaled-reduced structures. Camins Makers carries out educational activities and radically open exploration of Construction 4.0-related possibilities to be embedded our core research.

The laboratory is equipped with digital fabrication tools, open-source electronics and a varied set of user interfaces that make it a hub of exploration for the development of applications in Construction 4.0 .

Camins Makers promotes civil engineering studies and innovation.
