Centre Scientifique et Technique du Batiment

CSTB is a public research establishment in the construction sector with a turnover of 90 M€, employing about 900 staff including 500 engineers, researchers and experts in building science and building technologies and advanced ICT. CSTB’s core business covers four main fields: research, technical consultancy, quality assessment, and knowledge dissemination. Base on a multidisciplinary approach, CSTB contributes to innovation and problem solving for the industry, and to transfer knowledge and technology to the wider community, in France and beyond. It provides expertise to industry at large, and disseminates R&D results through various scientific media to practitioners and social and public authorities. CSTB develops consultancy activities, and contributes to reference (‘standardised’) solutions and services for products, processes and services in the Construction sector. Since 2008, CSTB has strengthened its support to public authorities in the introduction of policies to evaluate health and environmental risks, to control energy and reduce Greenhouse Effect. It also helps the building profession to deal with environmental issues (e.g. the evaluation of the environmental quality of buildings and construction products) and the control of energy.
