We focus on the development of the internal environment in buildings. We study the interaction between man and the environment that buildings provide for their users. We are convinced that the vast majority of buildings we build are for people, and therefore the conditions in them should be as good as possible.
Our main professional focus is on thermal comfort, air quality and lighting in buildings. In the climatic double cabin, we carry out experiments used to analyze the environment created by various devices for heating, cooling and ventilation. The goal is to help our partners improve the properties of existing equipment and bring new solutions to ensure an increase in the quality of the environment while using energy efficiently.
Healthy lighting is an important topic for our team. We are based on the latest chronobiological findings about the influence of the light environment on humans and apply them to the design of lighting strategies in schools, homes for the elderly and in the development of therapeutic aids.
For our work, we use competence in the field of experimental activity. Some of our main instruments are particle anemometry for analyzing airflow images and a thermal manikin for assessing thermal comfort conditions. We also use computer simulations of phenomena in the internal environment (e.g. CFD) and simulations of energy systems.
