Jessica Allen
Technical Manager - Climasure 

Jessica is a building designer who took a very early interest in function over form, rejecting design for performance. Her career started with code compliance in the residential sector - NatHERS ratings and the other complexities of the energy efficiency section the NCC, and grew to include air tightness consulting and blower door testing for both residential and commercial buildings. Her passion for building performance has snowballed over the years and is now thrilled to now be entrenched in Passive House techniques and building science because she believes that is where the real difference can be made.
