Peter Bartley says; “Pinecone Projects was founded to make a commercial standard of environmental design consultancy available to self-builders and small scale developers.  Alongside our design consultancy, Pinecone Projects provide project management services to ensure that all major decisions consider environmental impact throughout the design and build process.  For more information please visit here

As the founder of Pinecone Projects I have been aware of AECB since I completed my MSc in Architecture: Advanced Environmental & Energy Studies nearly ten years ago.  I hope that the AECB membership for Pinecone Projects will help to develop a network of contacts of like-minded businesses who can work together on exciting projects.”

Simon Hatherley, Cardiff

Simon says: “I am a qualified architect,with over ten years experience since becoming professionally qualified. I have significant experience taking a leading role in design teams and have worked with a range of clients including multinational corporations such as State Street Bank, Westfield Shopping Towns and Denton Wilde Sapte. Over the past ten years I have been involved in a number of schemes with strong sustainable credentials including the first BREEAM Excellent rated secondary school in Wales and a competition winning scheme for a Welsh Passive House. I have followed up my interest in low energy design by undertaking an MSc in Sustainable Building Design, at De Montfort University, and am currently working towards a PhD, at Cardiff Metropolitan University, based on research to develop a best practice model for innovative low carbon housing in rural areas of Wales. 

Through membership of the AECB I look forward to: further developing my knowledge of sustainable and low energy design; connecting with other professionals with a similar interest; and building a sound understanding of the Passivhaus system. The image I have provided is of Cowbridge Comprehensive School a scheme on which I was the Project Architect.”

George says: “I am an energy specialist and enthusiastic advocate of getting domestic retrofit right. My current focus is on working with housing providers to develop good practice retrofit at scale. I am looking forward to making use of AECB’s resources, but even more than that, getting the chance to meet and talk to other AECB members.”

Gareth says; “I work for Saint-Gobain heading up the delivery and development of our Multi-Comfort building concept, which essentially takes it’s basis from the well-known Passivhaus standard, and goes beyond this to include measures to maximise occupancy comfort in key areas such as Thermal Comfort, Audio Comfort, Visual Comfort, indoor Air Quality and Economic Comfort. I have become an AECB member to stay up-to-date with changes in the industry, have access to training/the various literature available, and to potentially connect to designers, contractors and certifiers who may be interested in assisting in the delivery of Multi-Comfort & Passivhaus projects, or simply adopting the standard for their own projects and clients.”
