Bio

Sustainability specialist and Chartered Engineer, passionate about creating change in the built environment that works towards operational zero carbon buildings. I joined Elementa Consulting member of Integral Group in 2014, where I am a Senior Engineer working across the sustainability and mechanical teams. I lead mechanical, environmental analysis and sustainability consulting projects. Working between these fields I am able to develop and implement comprehensive energy and sustainability strategies on a wide number of developments. I have had the opportunity to work on many innovative low energy projects including Hackbridge Primary a Net Zero Energy and Passivhaus school and a fossil fuel free residential development in Brighton. I am passionate about reducing carbon emissions, and doing my bit to ensure that we meet our climate change goals. I was frustrated that policy in London did not necessarily lead to design choices that resulted in buildings with long term carbon emission reductions. I initiated the London Energy Transformation Initiative (LETI) to try to change this. LETI has engaged over 250 industry professionals to put together collaborative cross sector policy recommendations for a zero emissions London ‐ see www.leti.london. In 2017 I was awarded the UKGBC rising star award, and was appointed one of the Mayors Design Advocates for Good Growth, partly in recognition for this work. I advocate for change across the industry through publishing articles in CIBSE Journal, Building Magazine and Modern Building Services and am a regular speaker throughout some of the industry’s leading conferences; Ecobuild, CIBSE Build2Perform, Canadian Green Building Council ‘Building Lasting Change’ and Green Sky Thinking. I hold a MEng in Architecture and Environmental Design from the University of Nottingham and am a qualified CIBSE Low Carbon Consultant.
