Pedro Valero



Pedro Valero has a degree in Mechanical Engineering from the Universidad Pontificia Comillas in Madrid, Spain.

Pedro gained extensive experience working as Lead Engineer in two prominent architecture/engineering companies in Spain. He had full responsibility for project design and work supervision of water/sanitary services, heating & cooling, ventilation, electricity (high and low voltage), voltage substations, indoor and outdoor lighting and fire detection and suppression systems for more than 30 buildings, totalling more than 1,500 houses/apartments in Alicante, Mallorca and Murcia.

At London-based AMBS Architects, Pedro created, developed and co-ordinated the firm’s engineering department.

Pedro has been contributing to an outstanding £44 million project on the Greenwich Peninsula. London’s first purpose-built hub for the creative industries, Design District comprises 16 new buildings and Skelly & Couch has been working on each one. Environmental designs within the District encourage natural ventilation and day-lit interiors through strong passive design, consequently reducing capital and running costs. To date, Pedro has been working on the below-ground services infrastructure, external lighting and environmental engineering in all 16 buildings. The Design District has a BREEAM rating of ‘Excellent’. 

Pedro’s projects also include major regeneration schemes for pioneering property developer HUB. The first is the £50 million new-build development of 200+ flats near the Elizabeth Line (formerly Crossrail) terminus at Abbey Wood, south-east London, comprising two residential blocks, commercial spaces and a public realm, all designed to minimise the impact on the environment. He has also been involved in plans by developers HUB and Smedvig to redevelop The Landing site, Maidenhead, offering 519 homes, for sale or rent, within six buildings, along with 57,000 sq ft of office space and 37,000 sq ft of retail, leisure and workspace.

Additionally, Pedro is working on a HUB co-living housing development for Women’s Pioneer Housing, creating 350 co-living units and communal amenity space; as well as a Cat-A fit-out refurbishment at Grade II-listed office block Mountbatten House. The upgrades will improve the building’s current energy use, carbon emissions and sustainability by using methods such as rainwater harvesting.

The Wiltern is an exceptional Build to Rent development comprising 278 homes achieving the highest environmental standards.
