Biography

Jason is a Professor in Construction ICT & Digital Built Environments and Programme Director of the MSc. in Building Information Modelling (BIM) & Digital Built Environments within the School of the Built Environment at the University of Salford. He is also Director of Construct IT For Business, an industry-led non-profit making collaborative membership-based network. Jason’s background is a combination of civil/structural engineering and construction ICT with over twenty years research experience in the area of concurrent engineering, integrated and collaborative computing in construction, product and building information modelling, digital built environments, collaborative working and behaviours, and organisational e-readiness towards delivering strategic value from ICT investment through involvement in both UK and EU funded research projects, on which he has published extensively. In relation to BIM particularly, his interest is focused towards BIM implementation and deployment, maturity assessment, education and training in the development of BIM capabilities along with bringing together the concept of organisational e-readiness with BIM. At a national level Jason is actively engaged in the Education & Training working group to deliver the UK Government BIM strategy and Scottish BIM Delivery Academia Group, member of the Behaviours4Collaboration Group, Constructing Excellence Digital Construction Group, Nuclear Institute Digital Special Interest Group, and the present Chair of the UK BIM Academic Forum. He is also engaged at a local level with the Northwest BIM Hub of the UK Government BIM Strategy, the Northwest Construction Hub BIM Special Interest Group, and Constructing Excellence Manchester Committee. Jason is Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of 3D Information Modelling (IJ3DIM) specifically focused on BIM along with 3D GIS and their integration.
