A building needs to perform well in terms of economics, environment, comfort and design. Qualifying and quantifying good building performance is challenging and vital for the effective operation and use of the building.
Interrelated topics of research under this theme include structural modelling, operational performance, human behavior, critical infrastructure, building information modeling (BIM), buildings management, environmental modelling, building conservation materials, construction material performance, architecture design and construction in buildings, energy efficiency.
