Amit Kaushik is a senior lecturer at the School of Architecture and Built Environment, University of Wolverhampton. He has a degree (Hons.) in Architecture with a Master's in Construction Economics and a PhD in Sustainable Construction Design Management in the built environment. He has years of industry and academic collaborations in Asia, North America and Europe. He has participated in various international research collaborations and conferences focusing lean project delivery and sustainability in the built environment. He has worked as an Architect in Delhi, India and started his academic career in the UK as a KTP Associate on a project focused on introducing Target Costing (Lean Manufacturing) into the UK construction industry along with BIM (Building Information Modelling). He was sponsored by the UK government as Research Scholar to visit and collaborate with the University of California, Berkeley. He has investigated the Integrated Project Delivery process that uses BIM and Lean tools and techniques to improve the delivery of projects. He has researched on developing criteria and strategies focusing on occupant productivity, health and wellbeing and occupant behaviour to enhance current green building rating systems. He is investigating the effects of indoor environment quality on occupant health and productivity. He is also involved in the investigation to outline the relevance of Building Information Modelling in developing a framework for effective implementation of the green building rating system in the built environment sector. He has also been part of research collaboration to investigate occupant behaviour and its impact on building performance and carbon footprint of the building.
