GBCSA - LogoWho we are - Principles

The team combines early career practical experience with further specialised education while targeting strategies that are economically viable, pragmatic to implement and convenient to operate and maintain. Success is measured by the number of interventions implemented rather than the number proposed.

Paul J. Carew Paul Carew - Director
Paul completed his BEng in Mechanical Engineering at University of Stellenbosch and worked as a building services engineer in South Africa and for Buro Happold in London with a focus on heating, ventilation and air-conditioning. He then attended coursework in Sustainable Energy Engineering at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden. After spending a semester lecturing on building physics and comfort strategies at the School of Architecture at Universidade Austral, Chile, he returned to South Africa and founded PJCarew Consulting in 2004. He has developed specific experience for a wide range of building typologies including offices, residential projects, laboratories, schools and hotels in a range of climates from tropical to cold. His focus is on passive and low energy design, thermal comfort strategies, computer simulated modeling, and costing and cost-recovery tools specific to green buildings. Paul has lectured at the University of Cape Town and continues to publish papers and attend local and international conferences.
