Mark Skelly chosen for Design Council built and natural environment expert network

Skelly & Couch Founding Director Mark Skelly has been appointed as an Associate to Design Council’s refreshed network of more than 400 built and natural environment experts who collectively embody the organisation’s commitment to make life better by design.

The network, which consists of a wide range of active leaders and change makers from various professions, backgrounds and regions, works to deliver design advice and support services in the built and natural environment and beyond.

Over the coming months, a new cohort of experts will join Design Council’s recently revitalised group of design associates, to form a dynamic community of practice which will share ideas, insights and develop exciting opportunities to collaborate. By bringing together increasingly diverse experts, encompassing social and business innovation and service and systemic design, this community of leading professionals will be equipped to tackle even more effectively some of society’s most pressing challenges.

The new appointments include 34 ambassadors, 350 associates and specialists as well more than 20 corporate partners, representing a wide variety of skills, expertise and experience in the industry across the UK, including all nine regions in England. The new structure replaces Design Council’s previous roster of built environment experts, of which Mark Skelly has been a member since 2015.

Dr Mark Skelly is a multi-disciplinary Building Environment and Services Engineer with 25 years’ experience and knowledge of a broad range of engineering and design disciplines.
