By challenge-driven research, education and innovation, we want to make real and noticeable difference in the transition towards a sustainable society. The goal is a balanced use of resources and quality of the human built environment.Centre for sustainable built environment (CHS) is nearly connected and aims to establish and support collaboration with industry and society.
