Among the SyracuseCoE HQ's features is the Willis H. Carrier Total Indoor Environmental Quality (TIEQ) Laboratory, a unique facility in which researchers will study how multiple factors—including temperature, humidity, air quality, lighting and sound—combine to affect human health and performance in built environments.
 
The 10,000 sq. ft. laboratory's initial operating capabilities include:

  • Simulation of steady-state and transient indoor environmental conditions including thermal comfort, air quality, lighting and acoustical quality;
  • Simulation of multi-zone office and classroom settings, and various ventilation, air distribution and environmental control technologies;
  • Control of the micro-environments around individual occupants;
  • Simulation of the interaction between an individual and his/her environment by means of instrumented, breathing thermal manikins; and
  • Evaluation of the impact of outdoor or adjacent zone conditions (temperature, humidity, wind, day-lighting, noise) on the indoor environment through a wall section exposed to the outdoor or adjacent zone environment.

The Carrier TIEQ laboratory is funded by Empire State Development, the New York State Office of Science, Technology and Academic Research (NYSTAR), Syracuse University, and Carrier Corp.
