Forensics

Applied for architectural forensics position at the Met Police the weeks before the London Bombings in 2005.

Since a child lived in places that have seen acts of Ultraviolence carried out by individuals, and extremist groups from the IRA, White Separatism, Libyans to Al-Qaeda inspired, caused by a very small number of highly disturbed individuals. (Nature vs Nurture) is someone naturally inclined or have they been influenced by life's experiences, the media and their surroundings.

The term "Ultraviolence" comes from Anthony Burgess' novel A Clockwork Orange, the film director Stanley Kubrick withdrew (self-censorship) from the UK because of copy cat events.

Historic Building Conservation

On the inaugural Historic Building Conservation (FdSc) Foundation of Science Degree, (distinction) at Kingston University, which included inspection and remedial work using traditional building crafts skills, ie stone masonry, Smithing, Lime Mortar techniques and stained glass work, which allows for special mortgage arrangements on listed buildings as it guarantees sympathetically undertaken conservation work, i.e restoring castles in Scotland.

Invited up the scaffolding at the Royal Observatory in Greenwich, London. Home of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) Prime Meridian Longitude 0º when conservation work was carried out to the Roof.

Carefully and respectfully surveyed the mausoleum of Comte de Vezlo, Guilaume Henri, who died aged 7 in 1901, and his mother, Annette Rosamonde Basio, the Comtesse de Vezlo, who died in 1938.

Regeneration: Skills Trainer

2006 Studying Historic Building Conservation FdSc, was approached by the Head of School and Prof of BIM/Heritage Survey to share knowledge gained, assisted running a satellite college in the grounds of Battersea Powerstation site link, and provide site CSCS Health and Safety and training and assessment to the local unemployed residence.

Delivering on a requirement on the developer of the Grade II* listed decommissioned coal-fired Power Station, to provide training and employment to local unemployed trades-persons, Project visited by The Rt. Hon Gordan Brown FRSE the United Kingdom's Prime Minister of the day.

Daylight Analysis

Researcher in daylight analysis for leading Chartered Surveyors in the field of Rights to Light in the City of London, received one to one training from the professor of Nuclear Physics at Oxford University, analysing the impact proposed building developments have on their surroundings.

Reporting research directly to the leading UK legal expert, and informed that I was two degrees of separation from the person that manages Masjid al-Haram also known as the Great Mosque of Mecca.

Daylight Analysis uses geographical location, and global scientific measurements of the Sun to analysis calculations of architectural alterations, rendered HDR High Dynamic Range images include brightness and heat radiation, used to analyse Solar Glare for planning of solar farms on flight paths and near landing approaches for aircraft.

For example if a proposed new build is found to impact access to daylight for residence of a housing estate, they can receive compensation through courts and have the buildings design altered to minimize the impact or have it taken down.

Archeological Survey mapping

A German 500-kilogram WWII un-exploded ordnance (UXBs) was discovered during preparation work for the extension work to London City Airport, within line of sight of UEL University of East London at the Royal Docks, afterwards visiting the Hartree Centre identified the location on their newly developed 3D interactive archaeology CAD survey of the UK from planning records, and geography indicators developed to help protect archeology and help avoid unforeseen costly construction development issues.

Smart Cities: Light pollution

London is within the Thames valley, the accumulation of lethal dense smog caused the creation of the clean air act of 1956, The act established smoke-free areas throughout London and restricted the burning of coal in domestic fires and industrial furnaces, Today monitoring of harmful particles from vehicle exhausts has lead to restrictions on engine types entering London with the Ultra Low Emission Zone ULEZ 2021.

Moon sighting

Spent time studying the British library's finest treasures, Leonardo da Vinci's: Codex Arundel, at A Mind in Motion exhibition link. sketchbooks containing studies of the Moon and its cause and effects on water, today computational oceans modelling is carried out by the STFC Hartree centre. link

Daylight Analysis in the design process

Developed an analysis process to show the impact of solar glare reflected off glass architectural structures, in line of sight of drivers at pedestrian road crossings etc. over a fixed period if time i.e low level light in mornings and evenings in Winter, Spring, Summer and Autumn.. and identify focus points of reflected sunlight as their had been instances of damage to vechicals in the past.

ADF Average Daylight Factor Analysis, Daylight and heat calculations 3D printed

The 3D printed Average Daylight Factor ADF model of a print industry showstudio in Covent Garden which at its centre has a Winter garden environment, the Sun's rays enter through skylights and glass walls trap heat similar to the Greenhouse effect, while the Victorian warehouse building lacks window openings for natural light throughout the rest of the floor,  Analysis model produced for Clerkenwell design week talk.

Daylight is one of the most diffecult sciences as its a wavelength at the same time a partical, Heat Radiation, colour spectrum and brightness values. to analyis daylight and minimise computer workload, we utilies reverse raytracing, tracing the photon rays from the scene back to its source, apposed to conventional raytracing which calculates the brightness and colour emitted from the light source. This is used to help calculate the rate of Global warming.

Oil industry Lobbyists sowed doubt over the past 30 years, today the evident of climate change is irrefutable.

Urban Regeneration: Planning

The Channel 4 documentary Tower Block of Commons highlighted the need for the redevelopment of dilapidated crime ridden housing estates, after it aired in 2010 to improve the lives of those affected the Goresbrook Village estate built in 1969 in Barking was redeveloped as private, shared ownership and local authority homes.

Within close proximity to Beckontree Estate the UK’s biggest council estate, and the largest estate in Europe until 1977, designed and built in 1921 to home ex-service men in the immediate aftermath of WWI, crime, and social issues steamed from lack of access to job opportunities, health care and local amenities in town planing stages.

Mosley fascist blackshirts used Hiltlers dirty politics of blaming others for their own problems in the 1930's, The British National Party used the same tactics more recently in local elections similar to Tipton in the west-midlands over a decade earlier the region was the source of extremist events from multiple sources, many untold stories of victims and good people attempting to keep level of racial harmony in the communities, especially after the national riots.

The area is currently undergoing regeneration including community projects for creative outlets, cargo containers converted into workshops, kitchens and art and crafts centers.

STFC Hartree: Smart Cities

Sensor technology combined with increasingly powerful data analytical capability is driving innovation in domains such as Smart Cities and Smart Workplaces.

Cases of mental health issues in the workplace due to the use of AI are increasing within Smart Cities the design of applications can present problems for people with conditions such as autism.

The publics genuine consern of AI steams from the Prof of cybernetics at Reading uni who Inscerted a microchip in forearm in 1999 to open a lab door at short distance, the media hystria from his hyped up comments about future buying and selling went global to the point churchs took it as being the mark of the Beast.
