Programme Lead, Sustainability & Adaptation
The Centre for Alternative Technology
Tim is an Architect and Programme Leader of the Sustainability & Adaptation suite of programmes and also the MSc Sustainability in Energy Provision and Demand Management. The role of the Programme Leader is primarily to foster the conditions and practice that promote high standards of academic quality and maintain these through the effective management of the programme. Tim is passionate about sustainable design and adaptation in the built environment, regularly lecturing and leading seminars and practical workshops in low-impact development, bio-based construction materials, low and zero carbon buildings, and closing the ‘performance gap’. Prior to joining CAT, Tim spent eight years in practice at Hopkins Architects in London where he led design teams working on projects ranging widely in programme and scale. Each of these projects tackled head-on in different, but equally ambitious, ways the real-world challenges of sustainable and low energy design.
