Ashley Bateson becomes a CIBSE Vice President.
Ashely Bateson, our Head of Sustainability, has been inaugurated as a Vice President of CIBSE. This is a fantastic opportunity for Ashley to represent Hoare Lea, as part of an organisation that promotes high standards, supports research, publishes guidance and acts as a voice for the industry.
If you haven’t already, then you should explore some of the content that we have published on our new website.
In particular, we have been publishing an ongoing series of articles that we call ‘insights’ pieces, which draw on subjects ranging from a potential combustion-free future, the emerging world of circadian lighting, and the changing science and research landscape.
A decade of dedication.
This is the tenth year that our firm has been working in the Middle East. From our partners Ian Gow and Andrew Morris, who opened our first international office in Abu Dhabi, to the thriving multi-office set up we have today, our growth and success in the region is something we’re very proud of. As such, we will be celebrating the people, projects, and passion that has got us to where we are today. Look out for stories, events, and activities coming soon.
Five projects are to be funded as part of our second Delving Deeper Challenge. All proposals were of a very high standard and all had a strong case for funding; picking just five was incredibly difficult.
The selected projects are:
- A python script for building performance simulation, Leighton Smith, Philip Pointer
- Gaining a competitive advantage through a health and wellbeing focus in the hotel sector, Jack Tinsley, Taylor Cook
- The influence of sound in a retail environment, Adam Scott, Kevin Luckhurst, Paulie Roche and Dave Parsons
- Neuroscience & innovation: exploration of ‘elastic thinking’ techniques and their impact on innovative thinking, creative design, and collaborative skills, Kirsty Kelly
- Ventilation and air quality – an inside out look at the air we breathe, Matthew Daniel

The Government has a policy of building 300,000 new homes every year and we believe it’s absolutely vital that these are built with health & wellbeing principles integrated into the design. To inform and influence MPs on the importance of this, we have been working closely with the UK Green Building Council (UK-GBC) as a contributing author and sponsor of its Healthy Housebuilding report.
Use #HealthyHousebuilding on social media to share your thoughts. Thanks to Ashley Bateson, Krishna Sonigra and Sam Carlsson for their involvement
