The objective of our research is to understand and manage the issues that impact upon the performance of a building. These issues include Indoor Environmental Quality (daylight and electric lighting, acoustics, thermal environment, indoor air quality, occupant comfort, health, wellbeing and productivity), building services (heating, ventilation and air-conditioning, intelligent building control systems), facades (envelope), site conditions (climate and microclimate), and building life cycle sustainability.
We do this by undertaking innovative research in our three research labs. These are:
Our world-renowned researchers have attracted talent from across Australia and around the world, equipping them with state-of-the-art research infrastructure to create dynamic, high-impact research teams focused on the grand challenges for our built environments in the 21st century.
