The department has particular experience and expertise in developing new products and in the measurement and verification of the performance of products and installations. Measurement commonly takes place both in laboratory test conditions as well as in situ as an integrated part of a constructed project. The laboratory has a stock of appropriate test equipment including a hot box and instrumentation both for laboratory and site use.

The team includes individuals with extensive expertise in computer modelling and simulation which reduces the need for testing and simulation to a minimum.
