Joanna Huie

BA (Hons)  MSc

Jo has always had an interest in buildings and their environmental aspects, having renovated several properties with her husband.

In 2010, Jo began studying for an MSc in Architecture: Advance Environmental & Energy Studies at the Centre for Alternative Technology in Wales, which she passed with distinction.

It was whilst studying that Jo became interested in the PassivHaus standard, which is a proven method of building comfortable and healthy buildings with an extremely low energy demand (about 90% less than conventional buildings).

Having been part of the Manifest team for two years, Jo is currently studying to be a PassivHaus consultant.

Jo is a keen gardener and enjoys the challenge of achieving year-round interest in the garden.  She also likes walking with her family, especially in the Lake District.
