The Bristol group has lain dormant for a few years, but we’d like to breathe new life into it in 2018. One of the main focuses of the relaunch will be to expand the remit of the group to cover Bath and some of the surrounding areas in addition to the city of Bristol.
The planning is still in its infancy and we will shortly be sending out a survey to local members to find out how the group can best support them. The broad aims of the group are to provide local members with inspiration and information through talks and visits relevant local projects and with opportunities to network and share knowledge with likeminded people. How and when we do this has yet to be seen.
Ideas and suggestions for the group are very welcome, contact the group leader.
Meet the group leader:
Hi I’m Beth Williams. I’m a structural engineer and Certified PassivHaus Designer, specialising in timber engineering and low energy construction. I have been a member of the AECB for around 5 years and was part of the Three Counties local group before moving to the Bath/Bristol area.
I work at Build Collective, a small but perfectly formed team of civil and structural engineers, working on a range of building projects throughout the UK. We are passionate about providing elegant, efficient and practical engineering solutions, especially in relation to low-energy projects.
Aside from work, I am in the (slow) process of a staged retrofit of my own 1960s terraced house, where I am aiming for the AECB Building Standard (previously known as Silver Standard).
