My personal aim is to ‘bridge the disconnect in thinking, practice and delivery of self-sustainability and eco-efficiency’.
This aim is driven by the need - to protect, improve and restore the natural environment by reducing and removing (where possible) the impact of human activities through a portfolio of work, namely:
- development of a Self Sustaining Building (SSB) programme, and,
- work and partnerships with environment agencies and other organisations.
