Working with the University of Bath and the University of Exeter, alongside other leading industry organisations, we were able to research and build multi-disciplinary simulators at Bath and Exeter University.
The simulator in Bath, especially, sought to build a facility which enabled realistic human factor simulation in a Tall Building environment, which would allow researchers to analyse the impact of motion and serviceability of a surrounding environment. This tall building simulator assesses human comfort in high environments through factors including environmental control and virtual reality. With a reconfigurable room layout, we can test and assess different projects, such as offices, hotels, and residences located in tall structures.
This important research enables built environment professionals to rethink how projects at great height can be designed in order to ensure that the occupants are comfortable.
