Earlier e-books on the Heritage Group website have provided mini-biographies of pioneers who made important contributions to building engineering services design and equipment.

These new pioneer revisited biographies depict in much greater detail their contribution to the Built Environment, being the result of more extensive in-depth research.

The series lists 30 pioneers in the fields of heating, air conditioning and refrigeration as well as in lighting and electrical engineering.  Most provide a record of the pioneer’s ancestry, their life and family including birth, education, marriage, awards, death and memorials, listing their achievements in much greater detail. All this is now accompanied by many more new and larger illustrations, covering their sketch books and inventions, equipment, their companies, publications, their involvement in notable buildings and examples of patent diagrams.
