A masterclass to be delivered converging manufacturing and construction at this year’s Forum 

The Air Conditioning and Mechanical Contractors’ Association (AMCA) is thrilled that this year’s agenda is now finalised with the successful signing of one of the most innovative global leaders. Adding to the already star-studded keynotes our latest high-profile from the United Kingdom is Mr Jaimie Johnston from Bryden Wood. Jaimie will demonstrate how “the future of making things is actually being delivered”. Jaimie’s session will also complement Mr Steven Butler, Autodesk’s Industry Strategy Manager who will share technical details into the industry tools of choice, technology developments and future roadmap.

Having joined Bryden Wood shortly after the practice’s formation in 1995, Jaimie has an interest in the processes used to organise projects; controlling the flow of information and delivery to dramatically improve efficiency in design and construction.

At Bryden Wood, Jaimie is the Head of Global Systems – this includes both physical systems (design for manufacture and component build solutions for healthcare, education, aviation, pharmaceutical and infrastructure projects) and information systems (data analysis, digital delivery and BIM) for projects in the UK, Europe, Russia and Singapore.

These techniques have been implemented on several large projects such as London Heathrow Terminal 5, Terminal 2 and major frameworks for clients including GlaxoSmithKline, the Metropolitan Police Authority, London 2012 Olympics Athletes’ Village and on the Circle rollout of private hospitals. Jaimie is currently leading a team in the design of the new prison estates transformation, a £1.2 billion programme for the Ministry of Justice, and developing the design for manufacture and assembly (DfMA) approach for their delivery.

Jaimie was a member of the UK Government Cabinet Office BIM Core Team, coordinating work packages relating to productivity and delivery, and was instrumental in delivering implementation strategies and early adopter projects in the public sector. He is now a part of the Digital Built Britain team and recently wrote the report “Delivery Platforms for Government Assets: Creating a Marketplace for Manufactured Spaces”. This has been adopted by Digital Built Britain as the key articulation of HM Government’s aspiration to adopt a more manufacturing-led approach to construction.

Jaimie will be joined at the forum by thought leaders and practitioners from across the supply chain, each providing unique insight into how leading firms such as Turner, McKinstry, Woods Baggot, COWI and Autodesk are utilising technological advancements to deliver innovative best practice solutions in the building and construction industry.

This year’s forum returns to the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre – 14-15 September.

Tickets are now available at www.bimmepaus.com.au
