Director | The Green Register
Lucy will be leading the Practical solutions to achieving the ‘fabric first’ approach workshop at Low Carbon Homes Forum South West.
Lucy is an architect with 31 years of professional experience in the UK and USA and has particular expertise in sustainable building practices. Lucy worked as a Product Specialist at Construction Resources, the UK’s first Ecological Building Centre, for five years. She spent the first two years researching the environmental impact of ecologically sound building materials and systems and the subsequent three years advising architects, other professionals and visitors on the appropriate selection of building materials. She was also responsible for running the seminar programme at Construction Resources and still makes regular presentations to architects and other organisations as part of The Green Register team. In 1999, Lucy started her own sustainable architecture practice, archipeleco, designing buildings that have a low impact on the environment. In 2005, Paul McWilliams joined archipeleco to then create develeco limited, a company exclusively self-funded to offer refurbishments of existing buildings – usually in very poor condition – and transform the properties into sustainable, beautiful buildings fit for 21st century living.
Lucy created The Green Register in 2000 as part of her lifelong commitment to the promotion of sustainable building. Lucy is co-chair of WESCON (West of England Sustainable Construction network) and on the panel of the Bristol Urban Design Forum.
