George Brown College's New Green Building Centre was formerly launched on November 10, 2014; this facility is a state-of-the-art research hub that connects companies in the construction, engineering and IT sectors to commercially-oriented applied research. The tour will include the following new Lab areas:
- BUILDING SCIENCE LAB C-300:
Designed for materials testing, computer modeling, and assembly development all with the aim of improving the performance of ne and vintage building.
- CLIMATE SIMULATOR C-246:
This facility can subject up to 2.4 m. wide by 3 m tall wall assemblies to a range of temperatures, relative humidities, rain wetting and pressure differentials (up to 2 kPa).
- BUILDING INFORMATION MODELING (BIM) LAB D-218:
This lab is equipped with LiDAR scanners which allows for more accurate 3D scans of buildings and sites and are used for for Point Cloud scans and BIM.
- CARPENTRY LAB C 201:
This is one of two carpentry labs on campus and is equipped with a full complement of machinery and hand tools.
Following the tour, we will be treated to a series of brief presentations by George students on their ARGILE research project, highlighting the infrastructure involved, data monitoring and some of the results.
Please join us for this great opportunity to view George Brown's new applied research facilities and make new industry connections.
