In 2009, I became a Royal Academy of Engineering Visiting Teaching Fellow in Engineering Design at the University of Bath. In 2015, I was awarded the Institution of Mechanical Engineers Construction and Building Services Division Prize for contribution to the execution, promotion, and advancement of the art of engineering and science of building services and construction.
