How do we design, build, maintain and deconstruct places that are healthy for the people using them and the surrounding ecosystems?
The building industry is under pressure to find and implement innovative design solutions. However, associated academic programs have lagged behind the demand for livable spaces and ‘green’ buildings.
The Sustainable Building Science Program (SBSP) fills this gap by creating an environment for professional training and innovative research that is applied to the design, creation, operation and monitoring of buildings that promote health, occupant satisfaction, have a low ecological footprint, and that must exist in the larger context of the community.
