About Chris Twinn
Where sustainability goes next. Why 3 planets' of resource? Build with less = less cost. Innovation strategies for design & implementation
I have set up his own specialist practice to focus on where sustainability is heading next after spending 28 years working at Arup and becoming an Arup Fellow.
Having had the fortune to have been involved in previous step changes in the delivery of the built environment, I now want to contribute to the next radical changes in attitude and design. My focus is on helping people take forward ideas for smartness, passive design, zero carbon, - at zero extra costs, the people/building relationships and the continual questioning of convention, so we can deliver more benefit and less environmental impact for all those who depend on our built environment.
