As the construction industry comes to realise the need to reduce carbon across all building sectors, Harbinder Birdi, Partner, Infrastructure Sector Lead, Hawkins\Brown, will explain how the practice is meeting the challenge to deliver innovative - yet low carbon - architecture and infrastructure.
Focusing on the development of Hawkins\Brown’s leading carbon measuring tool - H\B:ERT - which calculates the embodied energy of materials to help inform the design of low-carbon buildings, Harbinder will explore how such software, together with innovations in modern methods of construction, have improved the delivery of projects and reduced waste.
Harbinder will also elaborate on what creative tools the practice uses to improve collaboration between engineers, fabricators and contracting consortiums to overcome the challenge of working from home.
This event is supported by ICE North West, ICE Scotland, ICE London and the Royal Institute of Architects in Wales (RSAW) and The Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland (RIAS).
As Partner and Infrastructure Sector Lead, Harbinder is considered an industry expert on major engineering-led civic projects, providing design leadership on all of Hawkins\Brown’s projects within the sector.
He is a Chartered Architect and was previously included in The Architects’ Journal ‘40 under 40’ list. He holds numerous fellowships, including with RIBA for his continuing mentorship of new talent in architecture; and ICE for his expertise in the design and delivery of major infrastructure projects.
He is currently delivering architectural designs for two of the UK’s largest infrastructure projects: Thames Tideway, and three new stations for Crossrail 1/the Elizabeth Line (Tottenham Court Road, Bond Street and Liverpool Street). He is also a member of the Mayor of London’s Infrastructure Advisory Panel, HS2 Independent Design Review Panel, and sits on the Croydon Place Review Panel.
