Carleton’s SUSTAIN Strategic Partnership

Funded through a $617,000 NSERC Strategic Partnership Grant, SUSTAIN (Sensor-based Unified Simulation Techniques for Advanced In-Building Networks) will make exact digital copies of campus buildings using Building Information Modeling combined with 3D laser scanning technology. The project is a partnership with Autodesk Research, and is using optimization-driven Generative Design software to identify ways that buildings can be made more efficient. Details.
