Max Fordham

Max Fordham pioneered environmental design and engineering for buildings.

He founded his practice in 1966. Starting from a room at home, he pursued a new approach to engineering practice based on his own insatiable curiosity about how buildings work. Max has won significant and varied recognition for his work to ensure that achieving human comfort by giving buildings heat, power, water and ventilation in a sustainable way is integral to building design and not a barrier.

He is Visiting Professor in Building & Design at the University of Bath, Fellow of the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) and Royal Academy of Engineering, and Honorary Fellow of the RIBA.

In 2006 he was voted into the inaugural Building Hall of Fame, a list of 40 people who have had the most positive significant impact on the UK construction industry in the last 40 years. In 1997 he was awarded the CIBSE Gold Medal for his contribution to engineering.
