Sustainable Building Materials Lab

The Sustainable Building Materials Laboratory (SBML) is used for the research of myriad building products and materials that make up, shape, impact, and determine the physical/built environment. Research focuses on both existing materials – especially those with a sustainable and green focus – and collaborating with industry in the development of smart, emerging, and innovative building material technologies.

Assessment, examination and testing of materials that affect the thermal, luminous, and acoustical conditions of the built environment provide the lab’s focus; materials appropriate to cold regions and climates are emphasized; Individual materials, as well as building components, products and assemblages are explored to improve the construction, operation, resiliency, maintenance, and overall environmental quality of high-performance buildings.
