Co|Lab serves as HITT Contracting’s designated space for the research and testing of emerging materials, approaches, and technology that will rapidly transform the construction and real estate industries. This important work will rely heavily on collaboration amongst our industry and community partners, investing resources to mock up, test, and share our experiences broadly to improve the way we build.
“Construction shapes the world we live in, driving economic growth, producing jobs, and creating the built environment around us. As building professionals, we must take responsibility for innovating and improving our industry.”
Sourcing the right materials means understanding and trusting your options. Co|Lab provides a platform to bring the AEC community together to test innovative materials that will benefit our stakeholders.
Leveraging technology in the 21st century requires a willingness to try new things. Co|Lab aims to test and showcase innovative solutions to equip our community with the knowledge needed to drive efficiencies across the supply chain.
At HITT, we are always looking to break barriers and make the seemingly impossible possible. Through our research and development facility, Co|Lab, we are constantly experimenting and dreaming up new construction innovations that were previously deemed impossible. Co|Lab serves as a hub for research and testing of emerging materials, methods, performance, and technology that will rapidly transform the construction and real estate industries.

As we continue to celebrate Earth Day, we're proud to showcase Co|Lab, our sustainability-focused R&D space dedicated to bringing ideas to life in Falls Church, Virginia. The space serves as a hub for research and testing of emerging materials, methods, performance, and technology to transform the construction and real estate industries. Here are a few green facts about our facility:
Did you know?
🍃 The floors are made of recycled water bottles in an effort to reduce and reuse.
🍃 Co|Lab has over 2,800 sf of space using SunPower 360w panels. These solar panels provide the building’s annual power usage.
🍃 A hydronic system recirculates water to flow under and through flooring for efficient and consistent warmth.
