Department of Building Services Engineering

At its 21st Anniversary


Aims of the research centre

To provide a focus for research into measures that can enhance the environmental performance of all types of buildings, including new and existing buildings, and

To demonstrate a leading role in this research area at local, regional and international level.

Aims of the Research Centre


Function of the research centre

Toco-ordinate research activities in the department in the area of building environmental performance, including:

Internally and externally funded research projects and

Contract research studies (consultancy) in this area.

Function of the Research Centre


Driving forces

Driving Forces

  • Rising expectation of building quality

  • Increasing awareness of the need for and the importance of energy conservation, environmental protection and sustainable development

  • Development of HK-BEAM Scheme

  • Government review of the Building Regulations w.r.t natural ventilation and lighting

  • IAQ certification scheme for offices and public places


Driving forces1

Driving Forces

  • Government’s move to link incentives to building environmental performance

  • Housing Authority movement to quality and non-standard designs

  • Modular construction (Integer)

  • Increased use of more sophisticated design tools


Research focus

Research Focus

  • Quantification (benchmarking), assessment and improvement of environmental performance of buildings: design, operation and maintenance

  • Survey and audit of environmental performance of buildings

  • Development of simulation tools and assessment methods

  • Research into new designs and control methods, and operation and maintenancestrategies: Intelligent building; application of renewable energy sources; O&M practices
