Research collaboration between SinBerBEST 2 and UC Berkeley’s Center for the Built Environment (CBE) resulted in three Building and Environment Best Paper Awards in 2018. 

The Building and Environment Journal is a global publication that shares novel building science and human interaction with the building environment study findings. It established these awards in 2007 to recognize authors for their papers’ originality, industry contributions, presentation quality, and science validity. Building and Environment selects three Best Paper Awards every year.

Six SinBerBEST and non-SinBerBEST researchers from UC Berkeley recently authored an article discussing innovative uses of Octet-Truss Engineered Concrete (OTEC.) It is a lightweight structure created in the empty spaces of the ultra-high performance, fiber-reinforced concrete with very-high compressive capability. OTEC leverages porous concrete’s thermal-insulating properties while sustaining strength and rigidity. Please click here to access the article.
