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 with clients including GlaxoSmithKline, Heathrow Airport and a number of government departments.
As Head of Global Systems Jaimie is one of the UK’s leading thinkers on the future of industrialised construction. He was the author of 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. This work was reflected in the Infrastructure and Project Authority’s call for evidence relating to the ‘proposed adoption of a Platform approach to Design for Manufacture and Assembly’ issued in November 2018. Jaimie is the Design Lead for the Construction Innovation Hub, which in late 2018 was awarded £72 million to drive innovation and technological advances in the UK construction and infrastructure sectors.

Disruptive innovation: what it really means to the construction sector
Featuring Jamie Johnston
The tools that are available for the design of our buildings and infrastructure are becoming increasingly sophisticated and data-driven. The use of algorithmic simulation, machine learning and generative design not only vastly accelerates the traditional design process but opens new ways of...data machine-learning iot digital-natives innovation
