In the Seminar, Mr Jeff Willis will examine the development of the environmental design for construction projects during the last 30 years, identify some important milestones and discuss the effects of some of the commercial and political drivers which dominate the construction industry. He will also describe the complexity of environmental considerations which affect the sustainable design of buildings, and talk about a tool developed by ARUP to effectively evaluate original designs and compare the impact of changes to design.
This tool, the Sustainable Project Assessment Routine (SPeAR®), was developed as a methodology to assess the sustainability of projects, programmes, products and organisations. With SPeAR®, specific sustainability issues, under the broad categories of economic, social, natural resources and environment, of a project can be assessed through measurement of performance against a comprehensive, tailored set of key indicators. SPeAR® can be applied to strategic and policy planning, decision making procedures, benchmarking, corporate performance, project / development progress appraisal, and conceptual, master and detailed -planning designs

In the 1970’s, Mr Willis developed an interest in environmental issues and their relationship to building design, and this interest was one of the reasons for joining Arup in 1978. His main interests focus on the complexity of the evaluation of environmental impact of construction and the results of construction, and the interrelationship between the best environmental solution and the commercial and political drivers which demand a compromise.
