But who are we?
I’m Andrew, and I am the Director here at Buildpass. I’m something of a geek when it comes to sustainability and energy performance. Ever since I started out, I’ve been hooked on the intricacies of energy performance and the vagaries of our government’s policies. I know it’s not everyone’s cup of tea, but it’s most certainly mine. And on this warming planet of ours, it’s becoming more and more important.
