Patrick Bellew, Principal, Atelier Ten

Bellew, a founding director of Atelier Ten, is a chartered building services engineer with more than 20 years’ experience in the design of high-performance buildings. Has extensive experience in the integration of environmental and building systems with architectural and structural schemes, including thermal energy storage.

Doug King, Principal, King Shaw Associates

A chartered physicist, King became a building services engineer out of curiosity and applies scientific understanding to the environmental performance of buildings. Always makes the point that, while the building form and envelope can influence the internal environment as much as the m&e services, there is no benefit in high- performance buildings that no one enjoys.

Ground-breaking buildings over the past 20 years include Sainsbury’s millennium eco-store at Greenwich and the Innovate green office in Leeds, the highest BREEAM-rated building to date.

Co-founded King Shaw Associates in 2002. He is Royal Academy of Engineering visiting professor at Bath University and his work is widely published in journals.

Directs all aspects of sustainability at the firm, overseeing a team which provides environmental and engineering advice on projects around the world. The essence of his approach is to provide well-engineered, functional buildings that are sustainable and environmentally progressive.

Professional memberships include the the UK and Emirates green building councils and the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat. Sits on the committee of the CIBSE natural ventilation group.
