Ben joined the practice in 2012 and is currently working on a new BREEAM Outstanding office development in King’s Cross. He previously worked on a new BREEAM and LEED certified headquarters office in Hertfordshire, the new Chester Cultural Centre and the Peel Centre (Metropolitan Police operational and training centre) in Hendon. Ben is strongly interested in sustainability, and in his final year he headed a live housing project that was exhibited at both Ecobuild in London and at the Solar Decathlon in Madrid. After graduating he spent a year at the Universidad Austral de Chile lecturing in design and sustainable architecture. Ben also leads the practice’s sustainability group, and is on the steering committee of the Islington Sustainable Energy Partnership, a group of sustainable businesses within the borough.
Ben once took part in the Red Bull Flugtag and his team’s glider still holds the distance record for the competition.
