BUILT WITH TOOLS.
"To understand how buildings use energy, you need tools to document them. Simulation software then can help to measure and optimize those things during the design process."
TOOLS + SOFTWARE
Students have the opportunity to use BUILT lab equipment for assigned research projects related to studying how building perform. From monitoring lighting levels, thermal comfort, and energy use to simulating the energy performance of new buildings, BUILT provides the equipment and technical know-how for students to engage in research.
At BUILT we have specifically sought out equipment that is easy to use for students that may not have experience in collecting and analyzing data. A great example of this is our collection of thermal imaging cameras for smartphones and tablets, which deliver visual data in the form of images easily readable and transmittable. Other equipment, like the Vernier LabQuest2, are specifically designed to expose students to research in an easily-customizable and easily-digestible format. From interface to file format, we seek straight forward data sets that students new to research can feel comfortable working with.
The BUILT tool library also contains research-grade equipment for more advanced students and technical research projects. Research-grade equipment includes Onset HOBO data loggers, Mocon TVOC sensors, and FLIR thermal imaging cameras.
