In this paper, the simulation of the environmental conditions in university offices is addressed. Based on the real data collected from the environment, a flexible simulator is developed which accepts different office worker profiles including expected office occupancy and computer usage. The simulator generates sensory signals which represents different activities and occupancy of the office environment. These signals will then be used to control heating, lighting and computer stand-by mode of
