​What is a Building Science Engineer?

Building science is a field of study concerned with the technical performance of buildings, building materials, and building systems. The area is broad enough to include construction technology, material science, urban design, architecture, heat and mass transport physics, meteorology, mycology, and structural design, to name a few. The field can be seen as the specialisation of infrastructure engineering applied to building systems.

Building science and engineering are applied to the design of new buildings, the repair and maintenance of the increasing stock of existing buildings, and the development of new building materials and technologies. The issue of sustainability, pollution, energy use, and health are becoming increasingly important.

​Swindon is a large town in the county of Wiltshire and lies along the M4 corridor close to Reading. As of the 2011 census the estimated population was 185,600. Swindon has seen numerous large scale construction projects over the past couple of years and has multiple large constructions projects in the pipeline, such as:

The £400m Great Stall East development

This huge housing scheme will see 1,500 new homes built, with a selection of 2-5 bedroom private and affordable homes. The scheme will also see two new schools.

Kimmerfields

This project will see a six-storey tower block, which will host nearly 1,000 staff and is to be built with the environment in mind, with staff encouraged to take the stairs and extra electric vehicle charging and bike facilities installed. When it has been built, Swindon Borough Council will buy the £38m building and lease it back to Zurich.
