Daniel is an award winning associate building physics engineer in the London office and has a broad range of environmental design and simulation experience relating to energy performance, thermal comfort, daylighting, and façade design.
His is increasingly focused in bespoke tool development for building physics applications with the aim to increase the use of parametric processes.
In his 10 years at BuroHappold Daniel has been pivotal in defining form and facade designs through computational environmental optimisation, most notably; Shimoga Processing Centre, Samba, Haramain High Speed Rail and the National Bank of Kuwait.
In the majority of cases the parameters being optimised are glazing area, external shading, fabric properties, and facade orientation for high rise towers (office zones with side aspect) and located in extreme environments.
An innovator, he was one of the first engineers internationally to utilize the UTCI external occupant comfort scale and has gone on to develop a BuroHappold desktop climate tool as well as solar facade and daylighting parametric tools. These studies can be used to underpin the design of passive and low energy strategies to deliver energy efficient and low-carbon solutions at a scale from individual buildings up to master plans.
Promoted to Associate in 2015 and now responsible for promoting a standardise and exemplar Digital Design process throughout the sustainability group.
