  • We deal with building envelopes, building physics and advanced material solutions.
  • We develop structures and other products based on renewable and recycled materials, taking into account their fire safety and acoustic quality.
  • We specialize in high-performance composite systems and components, building envelopes with integrated power functions and intelligent control systems.
  • Our research program focuses on prefabrication of energy-efficient buildings and a new generation of prefabricated curtain walls for energy-efficient buildings.
  • We build databases for a comprehensive assessment of the functional properties of buildings throughout their life cycle.
  • We quantitatively assess microclimatic conditions in an urbanized environment, such as monitoring water and energy flows across different types of surfaces, their retention capabilities, etc.
