The Building informatics lab has around 50 workstations spread over three rooms. The PCs are universally equipped with i7 processors, 16 GB RAM and 1 TB hard drives. Each room has two printers for students to use. The lab also has two HP colour plotters that can be used to print plans in A2/A1/A0 formats. The PCs are managed by a dedicated team of three staff members, offering professional assistance for a range of computer issues, both in terms of software and hardware.

The EDP lab is both a workplace and the Faculty’s social hub. People meet here to exchange ideas or work on their final theses. During the semester, Room KB003 is used for courses such as Building Informatics and CAD courses. Here, students focus on programs such as Excel, Revit or Allplan and on the practical application of structural analysis software.
