Tim is a freelance Chartered Architectural Technologist, Passivhaus Designer and Retrofit Coordinator with a background in calculations through commercial R&D.
He’s an expert in Revit Architectural software and works as part of the Simmonds Mills team. Projects include several new PassivHauses and the new PassivHaus Garway Village Hall.
He is an expert in the Omnisense monitoring system which is unique in being able to measure moisture content inside walls as well as temperature and humidity. He wrote software to routinely bring in data from a dozen houses with 20-50 sensors in each and calculate mould risk inside constructions which is particularly important for internal insulation. He used this to prepare large amounts of data for the Case Studies and Economics modules of the Carbonlite Retrofit course.
Many students asked if they could have a version of the economics software they could use on their own projects, and after some development he produced ‘REALcosting’ software for the AECB. He is currently a tutor for the AECB in the REALcosting software, Economics and Building Physics/Case studies.
With such a long background in economics with the AECB there have been many opportunities for him to speak about it. He’s spoken at almost a dozen conferences and events, most recently in Stroud and will be organising the Stroud Open Homes 2018.
