Professor Stuart Green to step down as Head of the School of the Built Environment

Stuart Green

Professor Stuart Green has decided to step down from his post as the Head of the School of the Built Environment, at the end of July 2017. He has been leading the School since 2010.

Under Stuart’s leadership, the School has expanded beyond established strengths in construction management to become a recognised centre of excellence for research and education relating to the built environment.

The successful launch of Architecture has been a significant milestone, but equally important has been the development of a broad interdisciplinary expertise relating to urban climate, energy and environmental engineering.

The 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF) assessment ranked the School 3rd in the UK for the impact of its research in architecture, built environment and planning. Eighty-three per cent of its research was rated world leading (4*) or internationally excellent (3*). The 2014 REF submission was made jointly with Real Estate and Planning.

The School of the Built Environment is ranked 5th in the UK for Architecture/Built Environment in the QS World University Rankings by Subject 2017.

Sir David Bell, Vice-Chancellor, said: “Stuart has been an outstanding Head of the School of the Built Environment. The energy and enthusiasm that he brought to the role is reflected in the strong reputation that the School has developed for its research and education.

While I am sorry that Stuart will be stepping down as Head of School, I am delighted that he will continue to make a hugely valuable contribution to research and teaching.”

Professor Stuart Green has extensive experience of construction-related research and has secured over £7.5m in competitive research council funding.  He also enjoys wide-ranging policy connectivity with the construction sector, both within the UK and internationally.

From 2007- 2013, he served on the Commission for a Sustainable London 2012, which provided strategic assurance on the sustainability of the London Olympics. He chaired the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) Innovation and Research Panel from 2011-2016.

Stuart has been a frequent visitor to Hong Kong for more than twenty years and served on the Built Environment Panel of the 2014 Hong Kong Research Assessment Exercise (RAE). He is currently a guest Professor at Chongqing University and Xi’an University of Architecture & Technology.

Arrangements for filling the post of Head of School will be announced shortly.
