Founded in 2016, the business was originally a joint venture established purely to licence and commercialise the IPR held by the University of Nottingham in respect to the low-pressure pulse air leakage measurement technology. Fast forward eight years and we are now a wholly independent company with a fantastically exciting portfolio of novel low cost and highly scalable building performance measurement solutions.
Although numerous academic studies and well-funded research projects have illustrated the value of undertaking building performance evaluation, cost and technical complexity have traditionally stood in the way of measurement becoming normalised in market segments such as architecture, building surveying, energy assessment, house building, retrofit or facilities and property management.
It's hard to think of any other industry that hasn't yet already embraced technology for the means of quality control and assurance, performance validation, feedback and continuous improvement. Here at Build Test Solutions, we're working hard to change this by discovering, developing, validating and producing a range of cost-effective and accessible tools and techniques dedicated to measuring and understanding the real-world performance of buildings.
