Who are the Stars of Building Science?
Building4change wants you to nominate stars for virtual academy of excellence
Report from – Jo Smit
There are plenty of brilliant minds working in the built environment, and we want you to tell us who they are. Over the next seven weeks we are asking Building4change.com’s 60,000 readers and its Twitter followers to nominate their Stars of Building Science.
Your nominee may be an established name already familiar to many within the industry for their achievements, or they may be a rising star, making their mark in their chosen field. They may be working in a university or research organisation or a major multinational business; they may be a UK construction industry name, or perhaps even be innovating with a brand new technology in a start-up.
This informal competition is open to those involved in any aspect of the built environment and any discipline, in the UK or overseas. This quest is intended simply to recognise the achievements of all those who are promoting the very best in building science to improve the quality, sustainability and resilience of the built environment, and ultimately make people’s lives better.
During the seven week voting period we will be publishing news of some of your nominated stars to inspire you in your choice. Then the nominations will be counted and we will publish a final list of the top scorers, which will form a virtual academy of scientific excellence.
So nominate your star now, by emailing Building4change@bre.co.uk with your choice – you have until 20 September 2013, when voting will close.
Those making nominations will not be identified in future articles. You can nominate more than one individual, but you cannot cast more than one vote for one individual.
