Research Mission

The research section of BiRD has grown out of a collaboration between former sections 'Green Building Engineering', which focused on sustainability assessment methodologies of buildings and the 'HVAC'-section, who work on low exergy thermal systems By grouping both sections a holistic approach on performance of buildings is obtained. With changing boundary conditions with respect to occupant behaviour and health, but also with respect to climate change and energy transition, new approaches and design, test standards are to be developed. BiRD wants to bridge the gap between academic insigths and practical implementation.
