Having joined Bryden Wood – a tech-led team of designers in pursuit of value – shortly after the practice’s formation in 1995, Jaimie is responsible for the application of systems to the delivery and operation of truly high performing assets. This includes both physical DfMA systems and information systems (data analysis, digital delivery and BIM) for projects in the UK, Europe and Asia.
As Head of Global Systems Jaimie is one of the UK’s leading thinkers on the future of industrialised construction.
He was the co-author of the ‘Design for Manufacture + Assembly’ overlay to the RIBA Plan of Works. He also wrote the strategy documents ‘Delivery Platforms for Government Assets: Creating a Marketplace for Manufactured Spaces’, ‘Platforms: Bridging the gap between construction + manufacturing’ and ‘Data Driven Infrastructure: From digital tools to manufactured components’. These have been adopted as a key articulation of the UK Government’s aspiration to adopt a more manufacturing-led approach to construction.
Jaimie is the Design Director for the Transforming Construction Alliance, which in late 2018 was awarded £72 million to set up the Core Innovation Hub to drive innovation and technological advances in the UK construction and infrastructure sectors.
