Laboratory of Building Production & Lifecycle Management

The research of BPLM lab focuses on three main issues: building performance、lifecycle management and Humanitarian Architecture activities. The building performance issue mainly evaluated the space safety, includes slipperiness of flooring materials and the adhesion performance of the tile finish walls. The lifecycle management includes the valuation of building maintenance cost and lifecycle carbon output. Based on the research, the BPLM lab is now assisting the government developing two policies: the diagnostic system for building external wall tiles, and the long-term repair & maintenance plan for public housings.
Besides the research area mentioned above. we have adopted the concept of Humanitarian Architecture to build simple structure for teaching & communicating that cooperate with local schools and communities since 2010. We have successfully built seven facilities in elementary schools in Taiwanese aboriginal regions. Through these acts, we fulfill the spirit of dedicating our profession to the society. In recent years, we have also published a variety of basic architectural and aesthetic teaching materials, introducing hands-on projects and construction courses to elementary school students during summer camps, enhancing their knowledge in architecture.
