    Programme Description

    In Architectural Science we address the development, evaluation and application of principles for sustainable, low-energy, low-Carbon design and management of the built environment, on scales from the individual component, through whole buildings, to communities.

    The following areas are of particular strength:

    * Sustainable housing design
    * Human interaction with the built environment
    * Urban planning for sustainability
    * Adaptation to climate change
    * Health and comfort in buildings and settlements
    * Responsive facades
    * Naturally ventilated buildings
    * Efficient building services
    * Alternative and renewable energy supplies
    * Low energy and passive heating and cooling
    * Waste minimisation in construction
    * Development of modelling and simulation methods in architectural science
    * Development of design tools and guidance
    * Energy and environmental assessment
    * Building construction processes
    * Research in the design process
    * Integrating combined heat and power use with buildings
    * Energy performance studies of buildings in use
