About Building Simulation

Building Simulation was established in April 1988 to provide specialist simulation support to designers and managers of buildings. The Company was founded by Catherine Simpson in response to the demand for building simulations to be undertaken by practical, experienced engineers.

Catherine is a Chartered Engineer and is a Fellow of CIBSE and the Energy Institute. She has a Master of Science degree in ‘Energy in Buildings’ from Cranfield Institute of Technology. Catherine’s background is building services with 30 years’ experience of computer simulations for a variety of building applications. Catherine was a registered BREEAM assessor for 10 years and is recognised as a specialist in her field of expertise.
