Alan joined RSP in 1990 and has
subsequently been a significant contributor to the development of the Practice.
He has had considerable experience in a wide range of projects ranging from
mission critical buildings such as Data Centres, to Laboratories, Leisure
Centres, Offices, Educational Institutions and Visitor Attractions. Having an
Energy Engineering background, he has been a driving force within the practice
on renewable energy technology, energy audits and working with other team members
to produce Low Energy designs. Alan has valuable experience in system proving,
commissioning, building performance monitoring and ‘making buildings work’.
An advocate of early engagement with the rest of the Design
Team, Alan’s approach to Design Team integration and the need for fast
information flow to allow critical design decisions to be made has been
recognized as a significant contribution to projects. Alan also recognizes the importance of seeing
buildings and projects from the users point of view, so simplicity of control
and ease of maintenance are focused on within the whole design process.
