US Army Engineer Research and Development Center's Construction Engineering Research Laboratory celebrates 50th year
CHAMPAIN, IL. (Aug. 28, 2019) - Installation systems, buildings and structures, training and lands, the Warfighter, emergency response infrastructure and more are all part of the Construction Engineering Research Laboratory's present day missions. CERL's original mission was tightly focused on vertical construction. Presently, at a time of rapid transition within the Department of Defense (DoD) and the Army, CERL is increasingly poised to create unique impacts across the homeland, cantonment and contingency operations through innovative research. One of seven laboratories belonging to the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center, CERL was dedicated in July 1969. Today CERL celebrates its 50th Anniversary.
