Building Science Labs maintains a state-of-the-art research laboratory space in Waterloo, Ontario, and conducts field research at established and temporary locations across North America. Our research work is wide-ranging: we help manufacturers with product development; we design and conduct advanced material properties tests; we undertake major research programs with government and industry partners. Each project is approached as a unique challenge, requiring a solution tailored to the needs of our clients and industry partners.
Our main laboratory space (pictured below) is used flexibly, with new equipment designed, assembled, and disassembled on a regular basis. We analyze and extend measured results using various modeling programs, including two- and three-dimensional heat flow programs (THERM, HEAT 3D), hygrothermal modeling software (WUFI Pro and WUFI Plus), and other in-house proprietary programs.
We also supply a variety of sensors and research equipment to other building scientists, and can train and support your personnel in their use. For more information, see our Building Science Labs Store.
