How to retrofit our existing housing stock - Lucy Pedler - BS013

How to retrofit our existing housing stock - Lucy Pedler  - BS013

It's Building Sustainability's first birthday & most of the world is on lockdown... So this month sees a triple Building Sustainability podcast release to celebrate / occupy your mind.

The first of this month's episodes is:

Lucy Pedler - Architect & Director 'The Green Register'

Lucy started both The Green Register (TGR) and her architectural practice in 2000 when her children were 3 and 5 - she attributes the creation of these two new companies to sleep deprivation at the time.

From a desk in her spare bedroom, TGR has grown to be what Lucy had hoped it would be - a successful nationwide organisation promoting sustainable building practices. Lucy has had the pleasure of working with some very committed people and The Green Register team are second to none.

Lucy uses her architectural experience to inform the activities of TGR - understanding what training construction professionals need has contributed to the success of the organisation.

When not working with the TGR team, Lucy runs her own small architectural development company, focussing on providing affordable, small-but-perfectly-designed eco houses for those struggling to get on the first rung of the housing ladder. Lucy also enjoys cycling, cooking and walking in the great outdoors.

(Bio from The Green Register)

We discuss 

  • The fundamentals of retrofitting an existing building
  • The work that the Green Register does
  • The Future Proof training scheme

A huge thanks to Lucy for making the time for a wonderful conversation.
