Congratulations to Jonas for such a momentous achievement. Jonas is already an experienced and respected member of the SMG team and this latest qualification serves to add to his impressive list of capabilities.
Todays built environment contributes a high percentage of carbon emissions, so learning to take a holistic approach to reducing the carbon footprint of a building is a vital skill. All elements of the build cycle contribute to the sustainability of a project, from the materials, resources and construction methods used, right through to the use of technology and critically the overall design.
Jonas qualified as an Architect in Brazil and is currently in the process of preparing for the ARB Prescribed Examinations to meet the Architects Registration Board criteria. Completing the course once is a feat in itself, so to have to translate and repeat it for a second audience takes some serious dedication. Well done Jonas!
