Ed’s passion and drive has transformed the design process, embracing augmented reality and parametric tools to create some of the practices most high profile award winning projects.

With significant cross-sector experience including residential, defence, transport and education, Ed’s recent projects include Cambridge Science Park Bio-Hub; Arm Headquarters, Peterhouse Technology Park, Cambridge international technology park, CABI Headquarters, and the award winning St Georges College Activity Centre.

On Friday 26th August 2022 at the MUZA Courtyard in Valletta, Ed Hayden will give a presentation at this MASP event and will focus on the route to net zero, decarbonising construction.

In his presentation, Ed will speak about how the construction industry plays a vital role in the world economy, creating, operating and maintaining its physical infrastructure. It is also a major contributor to the world’s carbon emissions, with energy consumed at every stage of the infrastructure lifecycle.

Transformational change is needed if we are to achieve a low-carbon built environment which can play its part in reaching the net zero target.

At Scott Brownrigg they believe in ‘research based design’ and use the knowledge gained to inform their Architecture. Low Carbon and sustainable design is at the heart of this process.

A key question they continuously ask is, what needs to be done NOW to accelerate the rate of transition of construction to a zero-carbon industry to best serve the needs of the planet?
