Over the course of his career, Masoud Sajjadian has received a number of academic awards. Follow the link below to find out more.
Newton fund award, British Council, 2016
Georgia Institute of Technology travel award, USA (2014)
Best 8 design works of ISOVER international skyscraper design competition for designing “Solar Slice”, exhibited in Excel, London, in Ecobuild 2011
Masoud has extensive experience of work within the industry. This section contains more information about his work history and any advantageous industry links he maintains.
The scope of the project activity was to substantially advance the development of transpired solar air collectors’ thermal performance with storage in order to prove their commercial feasibility and develop the associated software (IES) and building management systems that would promote their market uptake. The project was collaboration between Cardiff University, TATA steel and NSG Pilkington companies.
Morganstone Construction Company
The scope of project activity was on development of level 2 BIM strategies as well as examination, testing and modelling design details and appraisal of how design details are translated into construction details. It included the implementation of thermal bridge analysis, thermal modelling and in-construction testing including air-permeability test, thermography test and smoke test.
Masoud has contributed to a number of academic journals and conference papers. Publications can include articles in academic journals; book chapters or full books; creative projects; conference participation and multimedia works.
