The achievement of adequate internal environment quality (IEQ) lies at the core of every debate about built environment of buildings. Architectural faculty, researchers and students need to test the performance of their research activities, experiments, capstones and projects at the initial stages of the design or experimental process. Onward with this concern, the environmental lab was established in fall 2017 as an appropriate lab that is able to host computer-based simulations and physical modellings.
In the way of acquiring the national and international accreditation for the architectural department at Effat University and to achieve a world-class education.
To facilitate the early stages of design for buildings through providing scale modelling assessment for different design ideas. This achieves the required environmental analysis of buildings to cover the department's students, faculty and researchers activities. In addition, this is to be highly utilized as part of the Architectural Consultation Unit
Environmental and sustainable developments research areas are trendy and needed in our modern area, the lab is open to attract number of national and international collaborations. Currently, the lab activities are in collaboration with King Abdullah University for Science and Technology (KAUST) and supported by King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology (KACST).
