What do you do at Greengauge?
I primarily work in building physics but recently I am also involved in mechanical design. I enjoy both of these! I spent most of my days modelling thermal bridges using various packages (COMSOL, Psi-Therm, Therm), analysing buildings in PHPP and IES, designing building services in Revit MEP and designing lighting in Dialux.
What motivates you to wake up and go to work?
Definitely the alarm! Oh, and the challenge of doing something new, or doing something that I know but doing it better.
What has been your favourite project so far?
There has been several, but I have mostly enjoyed working on parametric thermal bridging applications as well as on developing software to run thermal bridges parametrically in large batches.
If you could switch jobs with anyone who would it be?
I have heard that there are people who get paid to taste whisky. But this sounds too good to be true!
What’s something most people don’t know about you?
I am working towards a degree in architecture and this summer will graduate from Master of Architecture (RIBA Part 2) at University of the West of England.
Do you have a party trick?
I can belly dance.
What are your hopes for our industry?
I hope that the UK industry will become less conservative and generic in terms of architectural design and that there will be a drive for the building physics to be implemented from early stages of the project when it has the biggest impact on the performance.
What is on your bucket list?
Drive 4×4 across Africa.
