Dr. Peter Simmonds
Ph.D., ASHRAE Fellow/Life Member, FIBPSA
Managing Director/Principal of Building and Systems Analytics LLC
Peter Simmonds, Ph.D., Fellow ASHRAE, is managing director/principal of Building and Systems Analytics LLC. Dr Simmonds has been involved in the design and operation of tall, supertall, and megatall buildings around the world for more than 30 years. An ASHRAE member since 1989, Dr Simmonds has twice chaired Technical Committee 9.12, Tall Buildings, and is a member of TC 2.1, Physiology and Human Environment; TC 6.5, Radiant Heating and Cooling; and TC 7.5, Smart Building Systems. He is a consultant for both the Standard 55 and Standard 62.1 groups and is a past President of the College of Fellows.
Dr Simmonds is a recognized authority in the field of radiant heating and cooling systems, low energy buildings and systems, and occupant comfort. The main goals of his research and applications have been to understand the heat transfer and performance of radiant systems and occupant comfort for both heating and cooling. His studies on the thermal performance of radiant systems led to a unique way to enhance these systems. His work is included in the ASHRAE Handbook and has led to the development of radiant systems in the United States.
Dr Simmonds has authored or co-authored more than 60 technical papers, articles, and books. He is the author of the ASHRAE Design Guide for Tall, Supertall and Megatall Building Systems (2015), second edition (2020) and a co-author of the ASHRAE/REHVA Active and Passive Beam Application Design Guide (2014) and the ASHARE Natural Ventilation Design Guide (2020).
Dr Simmonds received the Carter Bronze Medal for Best Paper/Presentation in 1993 from the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers, The Crosby Field Award 2019 and the John James International (2020) from ASHRAE.
He has one Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering and another in Research and Development from Reading Technical College in England; a master’s degree from Hogere Technische School, Den Bosch, The Netherlands; and a Ph.D. from Technical University of Delft, The Netherlands.
