In the Building Enclosure and Systems Technologies (BEST) Lab a team of faculty and industry partners engages students in any type of systems performance related technologies. Though mechanical, electrical, and lighting systems are also part of different research and exploratory projects, we place a specific focus on building enclosure systems and their interrelated thermal, hygrothermal, and acoustic performance.

Founded in 2008, the BEST-Lab is directed by Dr. Georg Reichard, an Associate Professor of Building Construction and principal faculty in the Myers-Lawson School of Construction.
