Rebecca is an architect and laboratory design specialist and co-leads the UK science sector at Ramboll.
She has designed multiple science buildings for university and commercial clients over the past 20+ years, including the Royce Institute, Turing Building and Michael Smith Building for the University of Manchester, and is a recognised leader in the field.
She believes collaborative design teams, smart digital tools and deep engagement with university scientists and estates teams are key to developing a robust technical brief and seamless integration of architecture and engineering design that is essential for high performance, highly sustainable science buildings.
As part of her role at Ramboll, Rebecca promotes research initiatives that explore NZC laboratory design including the embodied carbon structural study that is the focus of our talk.
