The reserach group is associated with the Division of Architectural Engineering.

The research within Indoor Environment and Sustainable Buildings has a holistic perspective to the evaluation of indoor environment, and it’s close connection to sustainable buildings. The indoor environment research is centered on a combined evaluation of comfort, health and well-being for occupants as influences from our surrounding environment. Our research covers the evaluation of both individual and combined parameters within thermal, atmospheric, visual and acoustic indoor environment, with the main focus on the combined effects and evaluation of more than one parameter at a time. Evaluation methods cover quantitative and qualitative methods, while also handling occupant behavior, robustness and its effect on the indoor environment.

The research within indoor environment also contributes to new knowledge within social sustainability and thereby influence the overall assessment of sustainable buildings. The research group works with all aspects of sustainability in buildings but directs focus on social and environmental sustainability including Indoor Environment, Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) and sustainable building materials.
