Ian French - Associate Director
Stephen Hennessy – Director
Stephen Hennessy is a recognised authority on energy and sustainability issues in the built environment.
His passion for energy efficiency is fed by a belief that, given the reality of climate change and the new carbon economy, there has never been a more critical time for building owners and managers to implement realistic and achievable sustainability strategies.
Stephen devotes his time to team leadership with a particular focus on energy and life cycle optimisation. This emphasis on sustainability has been developed over almost 30 years, most of it as an engineer and then director of AHA Management. During this period, he was at the front end of the sustainability movement including roles as Partner Support Manager with the pioneering organisation SEDA, assisting organisations to identify and implement energy savings opportunities.
Stephen also spent a period as a Director of Steensen Varming Australia where he worked on energy and sustainability projects over a range of iconic buildings including the Sydney Opera House, the National Gallery, the High Court of Australia and Parliament House in Canberra.
Stephen has undertaken a significant number of NABERS energy and water ratings. He is recognised as one of Australia’s most prominent prolific and proficient assessors, and as a consequence he has been engaged to provide training on behalf of the scheme administrators.
Stephen’s extensive experience in the design, commissioning, operation, auditing and management of buildings and building engineering services continues to be leveraged to the benefit of a wide range of clients.
