Chris Twinn

He delivered his first zero carbon development more than 25 years ago and brings a wealth of experience from working around the globe, in practical design, construction, policy, regeneration, locally appropriate solutions, for masterplans, through to individual buildings. Taking a ‘Total Design’ systemic approach, integrating aspects that include planning & policy, architecture, engineering, building physics & economics, he pushes well beyond code and compliance standards and is recognised as a world leader and collaborator in his field.

Much of his recent work focuses on how the built environment should use less resources and hence also cost less than business-as-usual. This includes current projects achieving 85% improvement on building regulation carbon emissions.

Chris is a member of LETI and helped write their Climate Emergency Design Guide, an EDGE think-tank core member, Sustainable Development Foundation board member, frequent member of UKGBC task groups, a Jersey Architecture Commissioner, and member of four design review panels. He is regularly called upon for award judging panels worldwide.
