Philippa Birch-Wood

I am an Architect and environmentalist leading Thrive at Chetwoods. I support project teams to deliver quality architecture that improves our health and enhances our environment. I am always on the hunt for innovative materials and building methods to improve efficiency.

I am UK Green Building Council Local Network Coordinator for Birmingham and the West Midlands. I help to coordinate events, build networks and disseminate resources to ensure construction professionals in our region are informed of the opportunities there are to improve the quality of our built environment.

In my own time I am Chair of Low Carbon Lichfield (a community group educating the public on ways to reduce their carbon footprint) and co-founder of Transition Lichfield. Transition Lichfield follows the principles of a Transition Town (Transition Town Network): the group acts as a networking facilitator to build a stronger more resilient community through a series of talks and events.

I am a WELL Accredited Professional and an active member of MaD (Make a Difference) Networking – ask Edith Colomba).
