Dr Jeremy Gibberd is an architect, teacher and research scientist. He has worked on a wide range of innovative projects in the UK, the USA, South Africa, Botswana, Zambia, Tanzania and Sierra Leone that redefine how built environments are planned, designed, built and operated to become more inclusive and more sustainable.
These projects include inclusive schools and TVET colleges; self-build housing and sustainable neighbourhoods; high–performance office buildings and PPP projects; master planning for eco estates and universities; design guidelines, policy, legislation and training; water resilience, climate change and building regulations research; and sustainability policies and by–laws for African cities. This work has been distilled in a number of published books, papers and tools (SBAT, BEST, SBMI and SFM).
Jeremy is currently working on the circular economy, digital ecosystems, water resilience, building regulations and housing projects and is an editorial board member of the Building Research and Information (BRI) journal, a member of the Multi-Stakeholder Advisor Committee of UNEP’s Sustainable Building and Construction (SBC) programme and the Coordinator of the Smart and Sustainable Built Environment (SASBE) working group of the CIB.
