The Future of the Former John Lewis Building in Sheffield

When the John Lewis building closed in early 2021, a much loved part of Sheffield was lost. The council now has the opportunity to transform an empty building into something with a positive impact on the city.

The application of Agent-Based Simulations for risk assessment and management processes related to natural hazards.

This project focuses on using a relatively new, simulation-based technique called Agent-Based Modelling (ABM) to model the behaviour of individuals and aggregated agents (e.g. government, regulatory authorities etc.) to gain insights into the higher-order effects.

Grey-box modelling for residential building thermal costs estimation

The importance of improving the energy efficiency of buildings has been recognised as critical to decrease greenhouse gas emissions from building energy production to meet the UK government’s target on net-zero emissions. This PhD aims at developing a hybrid grey-box framework for residential building thermal consumption estimation based on properties’ geometric and thermal characteristics.

Multi-scale, circular economic potential of non-residential building stock

Reducing the demand for new materials and embodied carbon will be significant challenges that the construction sector faces in the coming decades. This research will build the evidence base to demonstrate the role the circular economy can have in tackling these challenges in construction, and provide the knowledge required to facilitate shifts in policy and practice.

Understanding the relationship between resource consumption and development levels

The growth of cities simultaneously increases demand for construction material and results in strong inequalities of development. A systematic understanding of the material requirements to improve human living standards may become crucial in evaluating meaningful pathways towards sustainable development.
