Max Fordham

Kai Salman-Lord is a partner at Max Fordham LLP and leads the Building Performance Modelling Team.

Throughout his 15 years as a building services consultant, Kai has always had a strong interest in building physics and building modelling, and how these tools can be used to facilitate the design and construction of low energy buildings.

In the first 10 years of his career, as a mechanical and electrical engineer, he led the engineering on many projects in a variety of sectors across the UK, and here Kai developed a thorough grounding in more traditional engineering and construction practices.

In his current role he combines this knowledge with his understanding of building physics and modelling tools to help the engineering teams at Max Fordham develop environmental strategies that not only meet the design-stage targets, but that are also robust through construction and into use.
