Read about the impact of the scholarship on a previous winner

The IDBE Scholarship was won previously by Mary Livingstone. Mary is a Cambridge-based sustainability consultant specialising in policy and research work and sustainable housing projects. During her career she has worked for Manchester City Council, AECOM, and for the Zero Carbon Hub on a part-time secondment.

Mary has had a key role in a range of high-profile projects including the development of Part L of the Building Regulations in England and Wales and the Zero Carbon Hub’s ‘Design vs. As Built’ project investigating the performance gap in new homes. She is the lead author on a Technical Memorandum for CIBSE on good practice in the design of homes. Her work was recognised by Building magazine, which selected her as one of its ‘top 50 sustainability stars’ of 2015.

Mary said:

"The IDBE scholarship and the course itself have had a very positive impact, giving me an incredibly valuable opportunity to reappraise and revitalise my career, to identify and pursue my own research interests, and to meet and learn from people with expertise in a wide variety of fields. I am particularly interested in exploring the use of interdisciplinary working in addressing sustainability issues, and am currently undertaking research into the role of interdisciplinary working in addressing the performance gap in new homes in the UK."

We would welcome applications from experienced professionals in all areas of the built environment from all around the world.
