The School of Civil and Building Engineering at Loughborough University is one of the largest in the UK. The aim is to develop the skills required to face the challenges of our increasingly complex built environment. Teaching and research are integrated to support the technical and commercial needs of both industry and society. Building research is enabled by a nationally-leading research environment of full-scale houses, laboratory facilities and computational and modelling capability. Work to reduce the energy demands of buildings and to ensure healthy and productive indoor spaces is a particular strength, which contributes to advancing the aims of the Good Homes Alliance.
