What kinds of projects are you working on?


What are you excited about in the industry?

Sustainability, performance compliance, health, and smart buildings applications are gradually coming together. We're not there yet, but the need is widely acknowledged in the industry. The more integration we have, the more we'll have smart, healthy, sustainable buildings.

What do you think needs to change in the industry?

The level of communication and engagement of different stakeholders in the industry. It's  an unpopular opinion, but I think there needs to be a slowdown in the decision-making in the design and pre-design timeline - we're being minute-wise and hour-foolish.

What do you wish we all discussed more?

Guidelines that will drive the market to embrace increased stakeholder collaboration as a must-have. I have been on different sides of the building industry, and I see them as uncommunicative islands.

What’s your hot take?  

🔥 Infrastructure and building regulations make lived environments better by forcing all stakeholders to view projects as long-term investments, rather than pump-and-dump schemes.🔥
