Sustainable fit-out. Circular fit-out. Fit-out for the future. These are all phrases we have been talking a lot about in terms of retail at Bioregional recently. Sian Cooke explains why
I deliver projects focused on the built environment, construction and materials; working with clients such as The Carey Group, Nando’s, Hammerson and innocent. My work varies in scale; from developing an overarching sustainability strategy to specific projects such as producing sustainable fit-out or purchasing guidelines.
In 2016, I worked closely with Nando’s construction team and its contractors to support and guide the team through its most sustainable restaurant build and fit-out, to achieve a SKA Gold rating.
I worked at the Mineral Products Association, where I managed the sector’s sustainability reporting and engaged in energy and carbon policy with UK Government on behalf of the industry.
I hold an MSc with distinction in Environmental and Earth Resource Management from Kingston University and a BSc (Hons) in Geography from the University of Southampton. I'm an RICS accredited SKA rating assessor for retail fit-outs.
When I'm not at work
I enjoy spending time with my family, walks in the countryside and cake decorating.
