Harvard University, Transient Heat and Moisture Transport Analysis

CVM has served as the envelope consultant for five of the Harvard University River Houses, a central part of a comprehensive, fifteen year, $1 billion rehabilitation program that will ultimately address all of their undergraduate houses along the Charles River.

Hygrothermal modeling has enabled CVM to present options for energy conservation upgrades to stakeholders to aid their decision-making. Energy modeling has been informed by real time data gathered through sensors embedded in the building construction, pre- and post-insulation improvements.
