Building materials and components Laboratory

Ensuring the performance of building parts

There are a diverse range of requirements for modern architectures, including those pertaining to the safety, comfortableness and durability. Architectural parts, such as floors, walls and roofs as well as the materials used are helping to ensure that buildings meet the requirements. Our laboratory is researching how to evaluate the performance of building materials and parts and how to enhance their performances with the aim of improving the quality of our living and societal spaces.
