Lee is an Associate Director at Buro Happold. Currently, he is the Global Lead of Knowledge and Operations for the Building Environments group, which supports the advancement of the disciplines six strategic focus groups on: health, wellbeing and productivity, building performance, smart buildings, digital design, design for manufacture, and BIM for efficient production.
Lee has a degree in energy engineering and national certificates in building services engineering. His expertise is the provision of multi-discipline engineering consultancy. He has spent his career as a lead engineer on both public and private sector projects, promoting low energy design, the adoption of environmental assessments, and the application of building physics analysis.
He is a former senior consultant of energy technology at the Building Research Establishment and a former senior lecturer of building services engineering at London Southbank University, where he has recently been appointed the chair of the Industry Advisory board with the remit to strengthen the link between academia and industry.
He is a member of the Chartered Institute of Building Services Engineers and the Energy Institute. In 2014, he was part of the government Zero Carbon Hub Performance Gap, which looked into closing the gap between Designed and As Built Performance. He was also recently vice chair of the Homes for the Future group, and a steering group committee member for the CIBSE Technical Memorandum (for good practice in the design of homes and sustainability guide).
His specialisms include designing beyond standard environmental assessment, optimisation of heating, ventilation and comfort cooling strategies, building physics, and low energy design with zero carbon technology. He is an advocate of new technologies ahead of mainstream application, including: integrated structural ventilation, ground and water source heat pumps, community and district heating networks using alternative technologies.
