Steve is currently working in the RCUK Centre for Energy Epidemiology (CEE) where he is involved in creating a 3D model of the building stock (3DStock). The model integrates energy use in the building stock of England and Wales by using Valuation Office Agency (VOA) data, spatial data, address matching and other data sources to construct three-dimensional models of buildings, premises, activities and energy use.
He has been using GIS since the mid 1990’s often pursuing ways that use the geographic component of problems as a bridge or link between different disciplines.
Prior to working at the UCL Energy Institute he ran a consultancy company for 6 years working on GIS and GeoVisualisation solutions for clients like the UK Green Building Council, English Heritage, Wates, The Building Exploratory and the Antarctic Heritage Trust.
Before this he worked for the Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis (CASA 1999-2009) where he was involved in projects visualising air pollution, feeding 3D weather prediction models, Land Use and Transportation models (PROPOLIS), 3D urban models (GLA) and city modelling (Tyndall Centre).
Prior to this he worked for the British Antarctic Survey as a cartographer.
Steve is working on the EPSRC-funded project “New Empirically Based Models of Energy Use in the Building Stock.” In association with Prof Philip Steadman, and Rob Liddiard. Steve is researching the spatial and geometrical aspects of the building stock for the project.
