Haico is a building physicist. He combines his background in architecture and engineering with a passion for sustainability. Having been involved in building physics design for most of his career, Haico’s aim is to deliver outstanding design outcomes, integrating passive and active thermal strategies, natural daylight and building systems. More recently he has focused on future opportunities presented by data science, machine learning and ubiquitous electronics to decarbonise the building sector. As Arup’s Global Environmental and Building Physics Skills Network Leader he is a prolific researcher, constantly trying to push the edge of environmental design with creative ideas utilising new materials and technologies. He pursues ground-breaking ideas in architectural science which have been applied to multiple buildings including Macquaire University Incubator and Hub buildings, 200 George St Sydney, Highpoint extension in Australia, Beijing Watercube and Captia Spring in Singapore
