Employing the most advanced and recent simulation tools and custom-tailored programs we model and simulate urban environments to predict microclimatic behaviors of the built environment predicting the potential of urban spaces for improvements. Besides computational models, we employ data acquisition techniques to generate spatiotemporal information about the environmental qualities in a high resolution. Supported by powerful computational systems and cloud computing resources, we run complex and multi-scale models that allow mapping and quantifying properties and characteristics of the built environment.
Our expertise in modeling and sensing goes across scales.
For the building scale, we offer:
Building Performance Modeling
Indoor climate Monitoring
For the urban scale we offer:
Urban Performance Modeling
Outdoor Thermal Comfort mapping
Pedestrian Wind Comfort
Urban Vegetation Modeling
In many cases, the available weather data in micro scale is not consistent: we develop sensing packages, design experiments and collect data, in urban space and in buildings. Through these sensing and monitoring techniques, we provide evidence to outdoor and indoor comfort levels, as well as for post occupancy evaluations.
