TU Dublin Establish Sustainable Construction Research GroupPosted: 11 April, 2019
The Knowledge in Sustainable Construction and Practice Research Group (KSCP-RG) led by Professor Lloyd Scott (of the School of Surveying and Construction Management) was recently launched by Professor Gerald Farrell, Dean of the College of Engineering and Built Environment at TU Dublin.
The new research group which, to date, has almost thirty members including eight international contributors and collaborators, combines five clusters with an overall focus on knowledge in the delivery of sustainable built environments. The individual clusters will be led by Dr Mark Mulville (Building Performance), Professor Tammy McCuen (Sustainable Digitization), Professor Lloyd Scott (Sustainable Construction), Professor Lloyd Scott (Knowledge and Expertise) and Dr Victor Hymark (Health and Safety).
The launch of the group closely follows the awarding of in excess of €300k research funding for the TU Dublin aspects of a wider consortium's bid under the Horizon2020 Framework Programme. The TU Dublin bid was led by Professor Lloyd Scott as the principal investigator and will explore the decarbonization of the EU building stock and how to accelerate the deep renovation processes by enhancing a consumer-centred circular renovation process. More details about the project will be available in due course, keep updated here.
