Green structures and materials

Green Buildings

We’re developing technologies and methods to reduce the environmental impacts of buildings and structures. This includes work on:

  • High performance, energy-efficient building envelopes
  • Advanced methods of building energy use simulation and optimization
  • Use and development of sustainable materials
  • Development of light-weight, durable structures with increased longevity to reduce environmental burden
  • Timber structures
  • Innovative condition assessment and repair of existing buildings and structures
