He leads a high performing team to implement new building standards for one of North America’s premier real estate organizations, the Great Gulf Group of Companies. Since 2017, Shaun is a member of the Active House Board of Directors.
Dr Arianna Brambilla is a building engineer and an architect. Her PhD thesis focused on Building Physics of high efficient buildings, developed between Politecnico di Milano (IT) and Aalborg University (DK).
Her project investigated building strategies for enhancing resilience to climate change, as well as the effects of users interaction with the building automation system. Before joining the University of Sydney she was post-doc at the École Polytechnique fédérale del Lausanne (EPFL, CH), where she engaged in a project aimed at developing a low-carbon outstanding building. Her research interests relate to the perceived and subjective thermal comfort in relation to the objective environmental comfort, hygrothermal performance of building components and materials, low-carbon design strategies and thermal energy storage.
Wolfram Trinius holds a PhD degree in life cycle assessment of buildings. He has worked actively in ISO work on sustainable construction for many years, is one of the initiators of the German green building council.
His engineering office in Hamburg carries out R&D and consultancy projects with focus on life cycle performance of buildings and building materials. His private building „S8“ was activehouse category award winner in 2018.
An energy specialist with main focus on PV, solar thermal, low energy building and deep renovation, Peder Vejsig Pedersen is responsible for the overall energy quality of solar energy projects in both new building and deep renovation also with a view to communication issues.
Peder Vejsig Pedersen has had a close cooperation with the international Active House Alliance since its start in 2009. In 2018 Peder Vejsig Pedersen was initiating Active House labelling of Copenhagen International School , which was unique by utilising PV panels in an architectural optimised way for all building facades above the ground floor. Based on this was obtained the Active House Award 2018. During 2019 Peder Vejsig Pedersen has joined the Green Island initiative as Director where he will help develop a new fossil free city in Vinge Nord in Frederikssund, Denmark.
