Dan has a history grounded in sustainable development and advanced numerical modelling
Dan has over seventeen years of experience modelling complex physics, with five years’ experience of motorsport aerodynamics at what is now Mercedes F1, and twelve devoted to building energy analysis at engineering consultancy Hilson Moran. His knowledge places him at the forefront of European, national and regional sustainability legislation and related assessment techniques.
He has worked collaboratively across the property industry to co-ordinate pragmatic approaches to sustainable development for a wide range of clients. He is of the view that approaches to sustainable development should be bespoke, considering the scale, sector and location of development. These approaches should address not only environmental aspects, but also economic and social factors too, echoing the approach defined by the National Planning Policy Framework.
Dan has considerable experience in the application of the energy hierarchy; looking to minimise building energy consumption through passive design, before applying energy efficient building systems and only then investigating the potential for renewable energy technologies. He also has an extensive understanding of façade design, providing advice on minimising overheating risk, whilst maximising daylight and views out.
Dan’s analysis has been conducted on a diverse selection of projects; from high rise commercial towers in the City, to mixed use masterplans in East London, to private residential properties in south-east London, reflecting the broad make-up of Iceni’s projects.
Outside work, Dan can usually be found on two wheels, cycling the North Downs of Kent and Surrey. He also enjoys a spot of running and gardening, if he can find the time.
