The Construction Materials Laboratory (LMC) is a research, teaching and service unit located in the Department of Civil Engineering (DEC) and is directly dependent on the Construction Materials Division.

This unit supports all teaching, service and research activity of the Construction Materials Division staff. It also supports research in the area of construction materials for teachers or researchers from other Sections of the Department of Civil Engineering and even from other Departments of FEUP.

The LMC supports the Integrated Master in Civil Engineering and the Master in Civil Engineering Structures. Most of the activity of the LMC when it comes to external services is integrated in the LEMC Institute - Laboratory for the Testing of Construction Materials (, which is part of the Construction Materials Division. This activity includes technical and scientific advice. The research activity developed in the LMC is part of the DEC Research Centres, from which LABEST and CEC - Construction Studies Centre stand out.
