Mock-up testing and physical modelling

Closing the performance gap between design and reality

Checking a system performance before installation will ensure it meets project specification and works on site first time.

Mock-up or physical modelling is the key to effective building design, procurement, construction and operation. It is a professional process of constructing a full size representation of the proposed design for a specific part of a building interior.

Built environment mock-up testing and on-site investigations

Physical mock-ups built in our laboratory or on-site

BSRIA experts can create a mock-up of any type of built environment to assess HVAC systems, and provide advice on design and installation, e.g. offices, dealer rooms, telecomm or IT areas, hospitals, isolation rooms and tailored applications.

  • full simulation of outdoor conditions, solar heat gains
  • internal loads, lighting, small power and people simulators
    Mock-up of an isolation room design at BSRIA
  • room furnishing and office equipment
  • fully working HVAC system

Our mock-ups enable customers and whole project teams to:

  • witness performance testing and trial the design
  • check performance for specific application
  • select the right system for their project
  • make crucial design decisions before a building is built. 

Full and part scale mock-ups can be built for testing thermal comfort and systems under real operating conditions to:

  • verify fitness for purpose
  • optimise design performance  
  • assess HVAC, cooling and ventilation strategies 
  • compare products before purchase
  • check installation methods before building on site
