Building Project Development

There is specialist expertise in the department in lightweight structures, off site construction technology and environmental physics.

The heavy structures rigs in the laboratory have been configured to optimise the testing of components and assemblies both in the horizontal and the vertical with the additional facility to induce racking forces.

The ability to model and test the performance of the external envelop in conjunction with the structure can inform the design of highly efficient buildings.
