Green Research for Sustainability

The Centre for Interactive Research on Sustainability (CIRS) serves as both a hub for sustainability work on campus. Also and as well as a sustainable building research subject. An internationally recognized interdisciplinary centre, CIRS embodies UBC’s Campus as a Living Lab approach to testing new ideas and sharing knowledge about sustainable building technologies and performance.The Centre for Interactive Research on Sustainability (CIRS) at UBC by Green Energy Futures on Flickr.

The Centre for Interactive Research on Sustainability (CIRS) serves as both a hub for sustainability work on campus. So it’s a green research lab for sustainability!

Also and as well as a sustainable building research subject. An internationally recognized interdisciplinary centre, CIRS embodies UBC’s Campus as a Living Lab approach. That green research spot for sustainability!  For it’s testing new ideas and sharing knowledge about sustainable building technologies and performance.

Designed on the principles of regenerative sustainability as outlined by Dr. John Robinson­. It’s the active restoration and regeneration of the environment. Also and the active pursuit of improvements in the well-being of the community. 

So the CIRS project is an opportunity to better understand the practical applicability of these principles. Finally and the implications for long-term performance and use of the building.

Finally, the building is equipped with a robust network of sensors and controls. All to optimize and document building performance. Finally and the data supports research projects on topics such as renewable energy technology. Also system optimization, water reuse, performance gap and inhabitant behavior.
