  • Honorary Lecturer
  • The Bartlett School of Sustainable Construction
  • Faculty of the Built Environment

Having worked in managerial and director positions in the AEC industry, I undertook doctoral studies beginning 2012, in order to undertake an in-depth exploration of change in the industry, its firms and practioners. In turn this gave rise to winning an EPSRC funding looking at possible future technological change in the AEC industry.

I contribute to various debates on this subject, including the IET's recent Digital Construction conference.

Research Summary

My current research is looking at the potential impact of digitization in the construction industry. This is an EPSRC funded project entitled 'Creating value through technology in use". This builds on my doctoral studies, titled 'Organizing for technology in practice: implementing Building Information Modelling in a design firm', which looked at how firms organize for technological implementation. Based on data collected about the process of implementation of Building Information Modelling (BIM) in one firm in the construction industry over 15 years, this study makes a number of contributions to our theoretical and practical understanding of technological implementation. I find that technological implementation is a practice-centric and continuous process and derive a model to illustrate this approach. Managers and policy makers are encouraged to create an ‘infrastructure of support’ for users, allowing them to create generative practices.
