President Elect

Professor Lynne Jack BEng (Hons) PhD CEng FCIBSE MIET FSoPHE FHEA

Professor Lynne Jack is Director of Heriot-Watt University’s Royal Academy of Engineering Centre of Excellence in Sustainable Building Design and has recently been appointed Director of Research at the University’s Malaysia campus. She is a Chartered Engineer, a Fellow of the UK Chartered Institution of Buildings Services Engineers and a Fellow of the UK Society of Public Health Engineers.
Following completion of her undergraduate degree in 1990, Lynne worked as a thermal engineer, and subsequently, a consultant energy engineer before returning to academia in 1993 as a Research Associate. She has been an active researcher since then, securing her PhD in 1997, and taking up her first full-time academic teaching post in 1999.
Lynne’s main areas of research lie in the modelling of air pressure transient propagation in building drainage ventilation systems, in the simulation of rainwater drainage systems for the purposes of performance assessment, and in the assessment of design implications following the integration of low-water use appliances. In particular, Lynne’s research focuses on modelling the flow characteristics in vertical drainage stacks that influence system pressure changes; on the response and performance of building roof drainage systems (conventional and siphonic) when subject to the effects of climate change; and on the impact on network design procedures of the integration of water efficiency measures.
In 2015, Lynne was nominated to, and took up, the role of Chair of the Scientific Committee of the CIB (Conseil International du Batiment) W62 Working Group; an international research organisation addressing Water Supply and Drainage for Buildings.
Lynne is currently CIBSE Vice President, a Board member, and Vice-Chair of CIBSE’s Education, Training and Membership Committee. She also co-founded the Scottish region of SoPHE (Society of Public Health Engineers). 

Vice Presidents

Ashley Bateson MSc, CEng, CEnv, FCIBSE, MEI

Since studying a BSc in Physics at Sussex University and then graduating with a Masters in Environmental Technology at Imperial College, Ashley has been excited about designing sustainable buildings that are energy efficient with low environmental impact. He has over 25 years’ experience, working on a range of projects, from commercial, airport, leisure, educational and residential buildings to major mixed-use master planning projects. Current engagements involve post occupancy evaluation, soft landings delivery and advising on wellness in design. He is keen for the industry to understand performance gap issues and for professionals to be focused on operational outcomes and building performance and not just designing projects for minimum compliance.

He is actively involved in a number of interdisciplinary industry groups and believe in the importance of broad stakeholder engagement in order to understand common challenges and opportunities. He is a member of the RIBA Sustainable Futures Group, BSRIA Soft Landings User Group, regularly speak at BCO events, and present to clients and architects on sustainable design. He recently completed a 5 year chairmanship of the Sustainability Group for the Association for Consulting and Engineering (ACE). He also participated in the UKGBC Health Homes task group, where he chaired the ‘guidance’ workstream and authored the chapter on procurement.

He has been chair of the CIBSE Homes for the Future Group since its inception and regularly facilitate seminars and debates on emerging issues affecting the industry, including smart technologies, overheating and mechanical ventilation performance. He is particularly pleased that we will soon be publishing CIBSE’s first good practice design guide that focuses on the residential sector. He has presented at several CIBSE Technical Symposia on subjects ranging from district heating to building regulations.

As a STEM Ambassador he has visited schools and colleges to promote careers in science and engineering. He is also a trustee of Article 25, UK’s leading architectural and engineering charity that provides planning and design advice for schools and health care buildings in some of the poorest places in the world. On recent site visits I’ve been providing engineering advice on new buildings for communities in Nepal and Tanzania.

He is a Chartered Engineer and Chartered Environmentalist. In his role as Head of Sustainability at Hoare Lea he provides strategic design input on a range of projects and participate in the innovation group, with an aim to better inform and prepare our business for technological and other changes.

He lives in south west London with his family and is pleased to see that an interest in engineering is prospering in the next generation.

Dr Kevin Kelly CEng FlEl FCIBSE FSLL
Dr Kevin Kelly C Eng FCIBSE FSLL is a Past President of the Society of Light & Lighting, an Editorial Board Member of the SLL journal, Lighting Research & Technology and a past Chairman of CIBSE Ireland where he is still active and involved in organising young lighter and sustainable design awards every year. He is Editor of the CIBSE Ireland/DIT jointly published SDAR journal:  and was awarded the CIBSE Silver Medal in 2015 for services in the Republic of Ireland region.
He is Head of School of Multidisciplinary Technologies in the College of Engineering and Built Environment at Dublin Institute of Technology where he designed and developed Electrical Services Engineering programmes that have produced over 1,000 well sought after degree graduates over the last 15 years.  He is a Building Services Engineer with a first class honours degree and presently supervises PhD research in lighting.
