Battle McCarthy Consulting Engineers and Landscape Architects was originally formed by Christopher McCarthy and Guy Battle in 1993. In 2000, the firm changed to Battle McCarthy Ltd. to encompass their broader range of work. Their focus on sustainability was unusual in the early 90s, but the firm has become one of the leaders in integrated design, approaching buildings from environmental, landscape, MEP and structural engineering perspectives to create sustainable buildings. In 2003, Battle McCarthy began participating in Carbon Trading and has teamed up with several universities to further research in sustainability. Two of their latest projects include the master plan for the Chelsea Barracks and the Loampit Vale Leisure Center, both in London, for which they were the MEP and environmental consultants.
Spotlight: Guy Battle
Guy Battle graduated from the University of Bath in 1986 with a degree in architecture and building engineering. His thesis was on intelligent building skins, which began his lifetime interest in buildings that respond to their environment. He began working for Ove Arup upon graduation, before starting his own firm in 1993. In 2006, Battle founded dcarbon8, a firm which specializes in carbon management consulting. Aside from his own advances in sustainable design, Battle is an advocate for engineering education to become more integrated with architecture, and lectures around the world promoting sustainable design, as well as continuing to work as a professional engineer and consultant.
