Hal-Luke is affectionately known to his International colleagues and friends simply as ‘Hal’ and he is often referred to as a true world citizen, having lived, worked and toured in four continents during the last 30 years or so. His prolonged tertiary education began on the 29th of October, 1975 at Northrop University, Los Angeles-USA as a candidate for BSc Aerospace Engineering, yet completed on a different format under advanced management studies with an MBA gained at the University of Leicester in the UK; specialising in International marketing on building energy technologies.
He is often quoted as saying .. ‘I wanted to design and build good aircraft but rather ended up side-by-side with good energy efficient buildings’. Although University education began and ended on a different note, his life long desire for continuous personal development has enabled Hal, even today, to continue with sustained learning initiatives including, but not limited to, personally educating and train
Comment on: MP calls for inquiry into offsite housing
unless we build homes like cars, we shall never eliminate the housing problem and the bubbles associated with it.
when shall we start building homes likes cars? it is possible to build homes just like we build cars but somehow vested industry interests are not so keen it seems.. this was the story when Disc Brakes were invented for cars whereas Drum Brakes manufacturers did not want to lose out on their already deep investment in Drum Brakes manufacturing.. henceforth there was a delay of few years and this is no different to homesthat can be built like cars!!
Come on folks, we have the technology to build homes like hot bread coming out of baker's oven.. WHAT ARE WE WAITING FOR?

if the only constant is change then changing the strategy on housing can not be a bad idea or strategy. Having sad that, reducing bureaucracy can only be good omens for future; but -also- that does not mean reducing quality of housing construction!!
Comment on: The end for building regs as we know them?
Regulations are made so to make life 'bearable' before the troubles start. Legal folks are available in case the trouble starts and the search for the 'guilty' begins. But revising the regulations is necessary to avoid all that hassle. Revising regulations means allowing those poorer folks living safely and cheaply in their homes without an army of hangers on benefiting in paper pushing.. SO HOW COME REVISING THE REGULATIONS IS A BAD THING? OR WHAT IS THIS CACOPHONY ABOUT ?... WE DON'T WANT THOSE WISHFUL HANGERS ON GETTING RICH AT THE EXPENSE OF THE POOR FELLOW WHO JUST WANTS A SAFE ROOF OVER HIS HEAD.. I say cut the paperwork, cut the hangers on!
