The field of Building Science is the study of the interaction between the various materials, products and systems used in building construction, the occupants of these buildings, and the environments in which they are located. Scientific information is collected that focuses on the analysis and control of the physical occurrences affecting buildings. It traditionally includes the detailed analysis of building materials and building envelope systems. The term “Building Envelope” refers to any part of the building that creates a boundary between indoor and outdoor space. The practical purpose of building science is to prevent and resolve problems related to building design, construction and operation.
