Congratulations on BSD. It is a good mix of engineering and architectural issues. It is about time the two were combined in the same journal.

I was a building services engineer for 25 years before qualifying as a lawyer. I am very interested in environmentally friendly design because when I was an engineer, then as now, energy conservation was important because of the oil shortages we all experienced in the 1970s.
