Building Science Research Centre

Building Science is a field of study that focuses on the technical performance of buildings, building materials and building systems. This broad discipline includes elements of construction technology, material science, architecture, meteorology, sustainable building, and heat and mass transport physics. BSRC focuses on effectively using Information Technology (IT) for sustainable buildings. Some of the major research projects of BSRC are Center for Building Energy Research and Development funded by DST and US DOE, Cool Roof Calculator funded by Climate Works Foundation, Earth Cooling System Monitoring in Pantanagar and Nanital funded by US DOE, Cool Roof Monitoring in Satyam Learning Center Hyderabad funded by US DOE, Smart Classrooms by NOKIA, and Monitoring of Distributed Transformers funded by Central Power Research Institute.
