Founder of Building Cognition LLC
Simon Turner joined a small consulting firm in 1987 which specialized in indoor air quality and eventually became CEO. The firm grew to be a pioneer and leader in the field, helping commercial real estate owners and managers become leaders of their own in the field of indoor environmental performance. Simon earned a LEED AP credential in 2009 and a WELL AP credential in 2016. Since selling his firm in 2019, Turner founded Building Cognition to help other CEOs and real estate executives find ways to make their buildings more productive. His interest for the past 30 years has been the impact of buildings and their features on human cognition and health. He has extensive experience in the building sciences as they relate to human performance, including HVAC, air quality, and microbiology. Turner holds an HND in Applied Biology from Nottingham City University, was recently honored as a Life Member of the Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA), is past Vice Chair of the GBCI Credentialing Steering Committee, a Member of the BOMA Orange County Advisory Board, and was a volunteer member of the IWBI ad hoc Global Coronavirus Taskforce.
