What is Building Science?

Building science is an interdisciplinary field of study that involves the principles of physics, chemistry, engineering, architecture, and other related fields. It deals with the design, construction, and operation of buildings in order to optimize their performance, safety, durability, and energy efficiency.

Building Science In Depth

Building science encompasses a wide range of topics, including:

  1. Building materials and systems: This includes the study of materials used in construction, such as concrete, steel, wood, and insulation, as well as building systems like heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems, lighting systems, and plumbing systems.
  2. Indoor air quality: Building science also encompasses the study of indoor air quality, which involves the design and operation of building systems to maintain healthy air quality for occupants.
  3. Moisture management: Proper moisture management is critical for preventing mold, rot, and other moisture-related damage to buildings. Building science includes the study of moisture movement through building materials as well as the design and operation of building systems to manage moisture.
  4. Energy efficiency: Building science involves the design and construction of buildings that are energy-efficient, using advanced insulation, high-efficiency HVAC systems, and other technologies to reduce energy consumption and operating costs.
  5. Building codes and regulations: Building science also encompasses the study of building codes and regulations, which are designed to ensure that buildings are safe, healthy, and structurally sound.

Overall, building science is an important field of study that helps ensure that buildings are safe, healthy, and energy-efficient while also reducing the environmental impact of the built environment. It is a constantly evolving field, as new technologies and building practices emerge and as environmental concerns become increasingly important.
