AbstractThis paper describes the new indoor environment research facility recently constructed at the Institute for Research in Construction, National Research Council Canada. This facility allows full-scale testing and physical modelling of office space lighting, thermal comfort, indoor air quality, airflow and contaminant-flow patterns, ventilation, acoustical characteristics, and occupants' reactions to these parameters. The facility consists of a test room, approximately, 12 m by 7 m by 2.74 m high, with adjustable interior partitions. The test area can range in size from a single large open area, to four identical single-office sized test rooms.
