Modular and industrialised solutions for building retrofit

More than 85% of the 2050 building stock is already built and almost all will require some form of retrofit/renovation in order to meet global carbon emissions reductions goals. Read more

Digitally twinned rating systems for low energy housing in Scotland.

This PhD Project aims to develop innovative ‘digitally twinned’ rating systems for low energy housing in Scotland. Energy efficiency is becoming a pressing issue that must be addressed in current and future housing developments. Read more

Modular Synthetic Platform for the Optimisation of Fragment Hits to 3-D Lead Compounds for Medicinal Chemistry

Background. Fragment-based methods are established for the identification of lead compounds in drug discovery.[1] Fragments are small molecules (molecular weight ~150-300) which bind weakly to proteins. Read more

AI-in-the-loop design optimization of building structures

Building sector accounted for near 40% of energy and process-related CO2 emissions in recent years. To ensure a sustainable built environment, it is vitally important to design buildings that are structurally efficient. Read more

Development of Cognitive Digital Twin for Predictive Maintenance of Building Facilities

As an emerging concept, digital twins have been adopted to save costs and improve reliabilities in many different industries, including the Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) industry. Read more

Building integrated Photvoltaic for existing bulidings

As the quest for sustainable building increases, Building Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV) promises to be a viable energy source that easily blends with modern architectural materials. Read more

Building a sustainability-organisational culture: theory-building and empirical modelling

There is strong evidence, which is replicated often and widely, that organisational culture is an influential driver of organisational behaviour, one that can subsume other factors such as strategy, human resource capability and leadership. Read more

Ontology Digital Twinning for Knowledge Modelling and Fusion in Building Risk Assessment and Insurance

Built on the initial work of ‘Applying AI to building blueprints for insurance risk assessment (AURIE)’, this project aims to develop an ontology digital twinning approach to construct the domain knowledge graphs for improved risk assessment and underwriting capability. Read more
