Our speaker, Peter Rumsey, PE is a passionate speaker about new and emerging technologies that will drive our buildings, energy and sustainability. Peter is known for his spirit of innovation, creativity and passion for buildings.

In the late 1990’s Peter set out to transform the building industry by creating examples of the world’s most innovative and most sustainable buildings.  Two decades later his buildings have been visited by thousands and have set the benchmark for low energy and innovative buildings.
