PBC is delighted to announce the appointment of Dr Hardip Mann as Director of the company’s new Sustainability Department.  Hardip will be working alongside PBC’s Project Management, Cost Consultancy and Building Consultancy teams to help embed sustainable principles into client projects, to create truly ‘green’ buildings. He is a Green Building and Indoor Air Quality expert and is a chief contributor to a number of influential focus and working groups.

Hardip knows that eco-friendly buildings, and the health and wellbeing of occupants, need to be dovetailed together, such that a sustainable building is recognised not only for its low environmental impact, but also for the creation of a comfortable and healthy place for its occupants. He believes that to meet our climate emergency SBETi targets, and to minimise our contribution to global warming, we need to understand and implement a low carbon agenda for the ‘whole’ life cycle of the building and, as such, is currently working on ways to ensure projects are truly sustainable.

As well as being a Fellow of The Institute of Environmental Sciences (FIEnvSc), a Fellow of the Royal Institute of Public Health (FRIPH) and a Fellow of the Royal Society for the Promotion of Health (FRSPH), Hardip is also an Incorporate of the Chartered Institute of Building (ICIOB).  His unparalleled knowledge and expertise will help PBC’s clients to achieve  their aspirations of high sustainability standards by reducing carbon, waste, water and energy footprint of their projects.

Welcoming Hardip to the company, PBC Managing Director Paul Philips said: “PBC has long recognised the importance of advising clients on how to reduce the environmental burden of their building projects.  We are already recognised SKA Assessors, but the appointment of one of the industry’s leading experts in the sustainable buildings sector significantly adds to the breadth and depth of the services we can offer clients. I am therefore delighted to welcome Hardip to our growing team.”
