Mark joined BuroHappold’s Sustainability and Building Physics team in September 2008. Key interests include product design development and testing, refurbishment and regeneration, parametric thermal modelling, façade optimisation, energy auditing, post-occupancy evaluation, Passivhaus design, economic modelling, stakeholder engagement and life cycle assessment.
In 2012, Mark completed a four year Engineering Doctorate (EngD) investigating the thermal efficiency of the UKs existing housing stock as well as developing and testing new retrofit products incorporating high performance silica aerogel insulation to reduce demand for heating and artificial lighting in existing buildings.
Mark conceptualised & developed an innovative solar-air heater incorporating aerogel, successfully integrated into the façade a newly refurbished 1960s end-terrace in South East London, pre-heating its mechanical ventilation with heat recovery system.
The product was the winner for the Passive Product of the Year at the 2013 CIBSE Building Performance Awards.
Mark is currently leading the development of a bespoke sustainability framework for the Arup Building refurbishment at the University of Cambridge, UK. He is keen to get involved in new projects of any scale, and take on ever more challenging responsibilities to develop his evolving skill set.
