The Institute’s field of work is a wide one. It includes research and pre-competitive development in the fields of construction materials, construction products and structures, as well as assessment of conformity and the certification of construction materials, construction products and executed works, together with studies, tests, measurements, inspections, and monitoring, and the analysis of the state of structures, transport devices and the infrastructure. Within the framework of its activities the Institute pays particular attention to problems connected with the use of recycled materials in the construction industry, as well as to problems connected with the rational use of energy, conservation of the environment, and protection from natural disasters and other kinds of accidents.

The Institute is a member of a number of national European institutes working in the fields of buildings and the infrastructure, and co-operates with them in numerous joint research projects. In the case of research and development work the Institute also has connections with other similar institutes throughout the world. In the field of the conformity assessment of construction products the Institute has also concluded, with some similar institutes, bilateral agreements about the mutual recognition of testing reports. The Institute is a member of the organization known as the European Centre of Information – International Certification Engineers.
