Spring Seminar – 25 February 2011 – Royal Armouries, Leeds
Steve Tomlin is regarded as a foremost thinker and advocate for all matters of environmental sustainability. His involvements include material recovery, deconstruction, and skills development. He is a regular stakeholder with BRE and Bioregional in progressing reuse and recovery of embedded carbon content, preferentially as opposed to landfill and incineration.
Steve worked on the development of Sustainability Policy for the 2012 Olympic Park and the legacy programme for the post-games facilities. Steve has co-ordinated a number of major and high profile projects that include the deconstruction of the Renaissance and Ceramic Galleries at the Victoria and Albert Museum in Kensington and the refurbishment and selective deconstruction of the new Dorchester in Park Lane. His sense of style and grandeur have culminated in design and build of the two largest centre pieces at Excel in London and NEC in Birmingham.
Steve has developed state of the art techniques and procedures for deconstruction rather than demolition, which increase the viability and value of materials and products for reuse, reconditioning and remanufacturing. Recent projects include the façade recovery of Arkenside House in Cirencester, deconstruction of Number
2 Charterhouse Street in Hatton Garden and the recovery and sale of the original Westminster Bridge parapet.
Steve is now assisting Kevin McCloud with the Cashes Green EcoHouse project, as well as the Tesco 100% ReUSE Programme for their new build and refurbishment programme of Tesco stores. He is also driving the regeneration of Walcot Yard in Bath, his latest investment and specialist venture.
