Jim has four decades of delivering value and certainty on construction projects around the globe. He has most recently been involved in project creation and developing a range of turnkey, low-cost, high-quality buildings as products.
Jim prides himself on being on a continual journey of learning and is watchful of pragmatic innovation. He is adept at combining pre-engineered products to create buildings that are least cost for the specific need.
An interest in long-span structures was honed when advising on the roof of T5, Heathrow (180m clear span). Subsequently, Jim has been developing supply chains in a variety of ways to cover large, open spaces.
Jim has worked to produce innovative solutions to such projects, including: air domes, tensioned fabric (single skin, ‘blown’ insulated), lightweight steel and glulam. His project experience includes: tennis courts, multi-purpose sports facilities, ice rinks, cricket pitches, and schools.
Prior to joining IPW… Jim served as a Partner in Gardiner & Theobald, and was Director of ARUP.
