We aim to become a centre of excellence in sustainable urban planning and design to provide a clean, safe and healthy environment for urban inhabitants. We will investigate the flow of heat, air, water, sound and wastes in cities, ascertain their impacts on human health and explore innovative solutions to problems arising through urban planning and design. The network established with the government and professional bodies will facilitate the transfer of knowledge to industries and practitioners. Click here to see more details.
