Head of innovation is a newly created role and will see Tom Gent work across Mace’s construction business to improve construction delivery, such as through the greater use of prefabrication. He will also work closely with our clients to unlock more efficient ways of working through innovative practices. Gent joins Mace from Laing O’Rourke, where he was the architectural leader for the company’s engineering excellence group.
Head of BIM Jon Harris joins Mace from Sisk Construction Group. He will be developing Mace’s BIM strategy, as well as looking at ways to drive improvements across the business.
Chief operating officer for construction Gareth Lewis said: “I am delighted to welcome both Tom and Jon to the business, as head of innovation and head of BIM. Mace has consistently looked to innovative new building techniques to make our projects a success. We are constantly striving to pursue a better way of delivering for our clients and I believe that both Tom and Jon will help give real impetus to this philosophy for our construction and consultancy businesses.”
