I find my role as Digital Innovation Lead at Jasmax, incredibly rewarding. After spending over 10 years focused on designing and delivering projects it’s refreshing to now be in a position to have positive impact on how Jasmax designs and delivers its projects.
In this role I'm charged with exploring new and emerging technologies, software and processes, anything that might make our project teams more efficient and more effective – and providing something new and value-adding for our clients.
I’m sure plenty think I just play with new toys all day, and I can assure you all that’s absolutely true!... but, some of these 'toys' are already re-defining how we engage as a project team, and how we communicate and collaborate with our clients, consultants and collaborators. Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) for example, has been a game-changer for us at Jasmax – these technologies, I started investigating over two and a half years ago.
It’s not often we encounter a paradigm shift, but the way these technologies are transforming how we communicate our designs is a powerful and engaging opportunity for the industry. We’re finding that VR and AR is creating a common language between our designers, and with our client groups. The technology’s ability to be updated in real time allows design discussion and understanding to be much more efficient. It’s incredibly exciting to leverage such a positively disruptive technology, just watch where we take this!
