Alisdair McGregor, Arup Fellow and Consultant is a leader in the field of sustainable design. He is very proactive in searching for environmentally sound solutions that help design intelligent buildings and communities that make as small a demand as possible on the environment and its resources. He works from the building scale to city scale and believes that considering a building in isolation from its location and neighborhood is not the way to reach lasting sustainability.
Alisdair retired from Arup after 37 years at the end of 2018 but remains a consultant to the firm and continues to develop in-house learning for Arup. He has acted as a reviewer for Architecture student projects at the CED, Berkeley in recent years. He is a co-author of Two Degrees: The Built Environment and Our Changing Climate.
Alisdair was named by Fast Company magazine as #17 on their list of “The 100 Most Creative People in Business 2011.” He was elected as an Arup Fellow in 2004 in recognition of his contribution to the sustainable design agenda within Arup and the construction industry.
