PHT welcome new team members

We are delighted to warmly welcome associates to bolster the Passivhaus Trust delivery team in the interim to announcing our new Research & Policy Director. More details on that next month!





Lynne Sullivan   Rachel Mitchell   Kym Mead

Lynne Sullivan

Lynne is a PHT Board Member and has advised successive UK governments on sustainability in the built environment.  She will support the Trust as Policy Advisor during our transition.

Lynne was awarded an OBE for services to Architecture in 2011. She is currently a member of the UK Government’s Green Construction Board, and Chair of the Good Homes Alliance.


Rachel Mitchell

Rachel is a certified Passivhaus designer and runs an energy consultancy involved with several Passivhaus & low-energy projects.

She has completed compelling PhD research on the performance of certified Passivhaus homes. This research focused on measured heating demand and internal temperatures to demonstrate if new Passivhaus homes meet the design standard once built and occupied.


Kym Mead

Kym is a Passivhaus certifier and current member of the PHT technical panel.

Building upon his prior experience from several architectural practices and the Building Research Establishment (BRE), he has organised many successful Passivhaus Trust masterclasses and reseach reports. He has previously supported the Trust as an Associate Technical Director.


We look forward to working closely with the Lynne, Rachel, and Kym over the coming weeks. We are also currently hiring for a Projects and Events Intern this summer.
