The Department of Architecture at Strathclyde, in partnership with John Gilbert Architects is seeking to appoint a Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) Associate to develop skills and expertise in the design of low carbon building design.

John Gilbert Architects is part of the Sussed Sustainability Joint Venture with Holmes Miller Architects and Armila Sustainability. Sussed projects are principally new build schools and leisure centres with a brief to meet Passivhaus and Net Zero Carbon standard and other similar targets. We have around £200m worth of projects aiming for this standard in Scotland, Northern Ireland and England. We currently have 4 directors and 3 staff working on Sussed projects.

The role of associate will be to support the Sussed team in developing net zero carbon knowledge and processes to provide enhanced efficiency and enable the process to be rolled out with less time and therefore wider application. This is particularly focussed on embedding Passivhaus techniques into the design team process.

Our primary work at present is delivering Passivhaus certified buildings, including preparing PHPP for projects (with support of others), U-values and thermal bridging calculations. In addition, we assist and advise on Net Zero and also involved in the advice and calculation of embodied carbon which requires calculation in OneClickLCA and PH Ribbon.

The associate will be given Passivhaus Designer training and opportunity to sit the Certified Passivhaus designer examination. You will be based between Holmes Miller and John Gilbert Architects offices in Glasgow along with site visits to projects across the UK.

The role is to assist in the development of Sussed processes and procedures along with pushing the boundaries of energy efficient construction, in particular:

  • Integration of Net Zero Carbon processes into day-to-day design processes.
  • Developing new processes to embed Passivhaus techniques into design processes.
  • Development of new techniques with design teams and contractors.

Several Sussed developments will be being designed and starting on site over the period of the project. This will allow the associate to test and monitor design, construction process and maintenance ideas as they are developed which will bring some valuable ‘real-world’ evidence base to the project development.

The project is part of the Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) programme that aims to help businesses improve their competitiveness and productivity through better use of knowledge, technology and skills that reside within the UK knowledge base. Successful Knowledge Transfer Partnership projects are funded by UK Research and Innovation through Innovate UK and are part of the government’s Industrial Strategy.
