A school for performance in a changing world

Innovating to improve construction performance and address energy conservation and sustainable development issues – this is the challenge driving ESTP Paris and its network of public and private partners. The Constructability Research Institute (IRC), the ESTP Paris research department, was therefore created in 2009. It brings together the researchers and laboratories of the ESTP Paris campuses in Cachan and Troyes. The IRC was evaluated for the first time by the AERES French academic research evaluation agency in 2014. Since 2016, it has been the host laboratory for the Université Paris-Est (UPE) Science, Engineering and Environment Doctoral School (SIE).
