Students on computers in the Trimble technology lab.

Facilities and Labs


BIM Lab: Through generous support from Hoffman and McKinstry, the BIM Lab and associated curriculum give construction management students and faculty access to equipment, software, and updated classrooms that reflect current industry technology in Building Information Modeling. Visit the BIM Lab.

Fab Labs: The Fabrication Labs offer 3,500 square feet of maker-space and digital fabrication services are provided by trained shop technicians. The Model Shop is also equipped with model-scale analog machines, for modeling and prototyping work in wood, wood-composite, and plastics. Hot-wire foam cutters are available for short-term checkout. Access requires prior completion of safety orientation. For current lab hours, updates, and regular posts of interest to design students, visit us on the Canvas page. Go to the Fabrication Labs page for more information.

ID+CL: The Integrated Design + Construction Lab (ID+CL) conducts sponsored design and construction research activities and advances innovation in practice as part of an allied regional network of university labs. Go to ID+CL.

Morphogenesis: An interdisciplinary lab that explores the relationship between the built environment and psychology, research in the Morphogenesis lab examines “compassionate spaces,” cyber-physical smart adaptive built environments that can feel, learn, and respond to physiological and psychological user needs. Go to Morphogenesis Lab.

Trimble Technology Lab: The Trimble Technology Lab provides students with hands-on experience with a wide breadth of Trimble solutions. The lab expands the university’s access and expertise in surveying and GIS, cost- and model-based estimating, construction sequencing, site logistics, building energy analysis, constructible Building Information Modeling (BIM) and much more. Go to Trimble Technology Lab.

Reuse Design Lab: The Reuse Design Lab works with industry to identify construction and demolition (C&D) waste streams where robust recycling and reuse is constrained by a lack of current applications. Go to Reuse Design Lab.


The Information Technology room is located in Carpenter 425. Available resources include 42″ plotters (glossy / bond), scanners, laser printers, computer labs, software, building, and studio access. Any certified student enrolled in an SDC major can get a computer account. An SDC computer account is required to print and scan.


Carpenter Hall was one of seven buildings designed by the first University architect and first chair of the Architecture Department, Rudolph Weaver. First known as the Mechanic Arts (or Mechanical Arts) Building, it was named on October 22nd, 1949 after H. V. Carpenter, the first dean of the College of Mechanic Arts and Engineering. Today, Carpenter Hall houses gallery space, classrooms, administrative offices, studios, and labs utilized by the School of Design and Construction.


Daggy Hall houses studio and lab space including the material resource library, the Fab Labs, and faculty offices.


Dana Hall houses the Voiland College Tutoring Center, Career Services, and the main office and interview space for the construction management program in Dana 146. The Electrical-Mechanical Engineering (EME) building houses several construction management faculty offices in 202A-H.
