Presentations

PRESENTATIONS AND LECTURES

Most talks and presentations made have been about how the design of buildings over the years have had features that try to deal with environmental conditions without using electricity - most of them because they were built in a time when there was no electricity. They try to use passive and natural forces. The building design presentations have usually concentrated on passive design and energy efficiency - on the design and performance of contemporary and historic buildings. They have been to architects, engineers, planners, university lecturers, clients and so on. 

The other talks and presentations have been on the elevated light rail we have proposed. The presentations have been to local authorities, central government, MPs and engineers, transport planners, lawyers, property companies and many other in the construction and transport world. 

Talks and presentations have been at exhibitions, conferences, seminars, courses, and private corporate and also one to one audiences.

Conferences and courses organised

The first green conference 

BRE summer course for lecturers

The BRE ran an annual summer course for university and college lecturers which I organised and managed. 

The purpose was to bring them up to date on subjects that had become topical or they wanted to hear about. The cost was kept down by using mostly BRE speakers with only a few from outside. 

A typical course programme and a list of subjects and speakers is illustrated here.

First RIBA green buildings conference

In the late 1980s there had been a growing interest in 'green' issues but little solid information about what building designers should be doing. 

As a member of the  London Energy Group, which was loosely affiliated to the RIBA, I arranged sponsorship and speakers for a conference and booked the RIBA.

Over 400 architects and engineers came. The occasion was exciting and a great success.
