Welcome to the FAS Building Technologies Blog. We intend for this blog to serve as a dynamic link to the program’s research, as well as a source for dialog and information on program research topics. The blog will investigate a number of policy issues regarding building technologies, energy, and climate change, including the need for improved codes and standards. It will also look into new building technologies that can minimize energy use while maintaining or improving safety and comfort, high performance emergency and manufactured housing, and other inventive solutions for improving our nation’s building stock and reducing the impact of buildings on our environment.
