Welcome New AECB Members!
This month we gave our new members the chance to introduce themselves;
Cowan Architects – West Sussex
Established in 1983, Cowan Architects offers innovative design solutions coupled with personal service. They work throughout the UK across many sectors with project values ranging from £100k to £10m. This March saw the launch of Cowan Eco Design, headed by Mark Elton and focusing on sustainable design and Passivhaus projects as well as low carbon retrofit. Mark is a long standing member of the AECB having been both an individual member or a representative of previous practices for many years. He recognises the AECB’s value in sharing best practice expertise, developing rigorous analysis of key ecological building issues and offering discussion platforms free from any particular agenda other than reporting the practical realities. The AECB Conference is one of the highlights of the year and a great place to refine ideas about building. Mark hopes that the whole team at Cowan Architects will benefit from the AECB’s knowledge, resources and continually questioning attitude.
Nzube Igwume – Wltshire
Nzube is an experienced Chartered Mechanical Building Services Engineer with extensive experience in mechanical design and building physics on various projects around the UK and internationally with a passion for delivering and monitoring genuinely sustainable low energy and low carbon buildings. Nzube looks forward to networking with other professionals interested in genuine sustainable building design and in doing so will strive to make sustainable building design the norm in this currently fragmented building and construction market.
Lisa Lewis Interior Design – Dorset
Lisa is an Interior Designer, specialising in bespoke, intelligent, sustainable design solutions. She has joined the AECB to meet like-minded professionals with whom she can share knowledge and learn with the purpose of practising sustainable design for her clients.
Pedro Reyna – London
Pedro is interested in Passivhaus and has joined the AECB to take advantage of the significant discount on the Passivhaus Designers Course. In addition, Pedro hopes to network and learn from the experience of others in Passivhaus design.
Esmond Tresidder at Lean Green Consulting – Derbyshire
Es is a consultant specialising in low-energy building design optimisation and Passivhaus design. His work applies powerful methods developed during his PhD to search for optimal designs. These methods literally evolve building designs towards optimal solutions and allows designers to establish strategies that offer the best trade-off between conflicting objectives such as cost, CO2 emissions, overheating risk, daylighting and embodied energy. He recently qualified as a Passivhaus designer and would like to combine these two areas of expertise in future work. Es became an AECB member in order to access both a wide body of knowledge and an audience of people who might be interested in his services.
