In front of Meyerson Hall

In front of Meyerson Hall

MEBD class photo from Arch754 Performance Design Workshop a few weeks ago. We had the opportunity to get our hands on a Fluke IR thermal camera and take a look at buildings on campus. Specifically we were looking at potential points of weakness in the envelope (windows, corners and edges, etc.), and just how facades perform in general thermally. I’ve also had some experience with the IR camera for HSPV516 Building Diagnostics. The camera belongs to the facilities department at UPenn, and they typically use it to quickly identify overheating transformers, fuses, and the like.

I won’t say where I am in the lineup, but it should be pretty obvious.

And here is a closeup of the device, produced by Fluke, that we were using.
