We have announced plans to grow our sustainability team and services following the appointment of Shawn Galliers as Director of Sustainability.
Based at our Oxford office, Shawn will lead the expansion of a new team of sustainability specialists with ambitions of becoming a recognised ‘Centre of Excellence’. Shawn will also work with teams and clients across the UK.
Shawn has spent his career working across the built environment and will also lead on supporting clients to ensure projects are delivered as sustainably as possible – whether in design or delivery – and ensuring sustainability is integrated across all Practice areas.
Having joined the Building Services Research and Information Association (BSRIA) early in his career and qualifying as a surveyor, Shawn has developed industry-leading expertise in the sustainable design, operation, and maintenance of buildings. This includes thermal and physical modelling, carbon reduction strategies, and energy services.
Shawn said: “Ingleton Wood is a fantastic company with an industry-leading reputation and being appointed as Director of Sustainability provides an exciting opportunity to develop and establish a new team of specialists to ensure sustainability is integrated across everything we offer. This will provide value for the business, staff, and clients.
“Climate change is a global priority but too often actions fail to follow the bold rhetoric. As a society, we have made great strides but there is much more we can do. We know the development and construction industry stands ready to be part of the solution, so our role is to facilitate and support sustainable delivery.”
Ingleton Wood’s sustainability services range from BREEAM assessments and post-occupancy evaluations to WELL Building Standard advice and energy audits. Our specialists already work on projects involving the NHS, universities and local authorities, as well as embassies and research projects across Europe and Africa.
Senior Partner Laura Mansel-Thomas said: “Shawn is a stand-out performer and possesses all the qualities and experience to help us deliver on our bold ambitions of establishing a new Centre of Excellence for sustainability, based at our Oxford office.
“Sustainability is more than the latest industry buzzword. We recognise that not only will it underpin our industry for the future but pursuing carbon reduction and net zero is the right thing to do for our planet and environment.”
