Charlotte Booth, a chartered environmentalist with more than a decade of consultancy experience, has been appointed as associate director of sustainability and well-being at multi-disciplinary architecture and engineering practice, BE Design.
After graduating from Durham University with a degree in Natural Sciences, specialising in climate change, Booth went on to study for an MSc in Building Energy and Environmental Performance Modelling at the Welsh School of Architecture. She has since led on energy and sustainability strategies for some of the UK’s largest urban regeneration projects.
Looking forward to her new role, Booth said: “There’s an incredible team here, who are committed to creating exceptional places to live and work in, which have minimal environmental impact and which are fit for future generations. Climate change is a very real threat, one that isn’t going to go away, so we have to be incorporating sustainable practices into everything we do in terms of building design. Businesses and councils are declaring states of emergency. But now, we have to deliver practical solutions to deliver the net zero carbon aspirations of our clients.”
Anna Tsartsari, BE Design director, said: “Sustainability isn’t just a buzz word – it’s a practice, an ethos, a commitment to the future of our planet. Designing sustainably for the future has been at the core of our business approach to design from day one. Charlotte will hugely benefit our clients, bringing an incredible amount of sector knowledge to their projects. She has already proven to be a fantastic addition to the team and we’re delighted to have her on board.”
