Dean has recently joined the Lendlease Digital Engineering Management team at Lendlease Building, Applied Insight. As a certified BIM Project Manager (RICS) he brings with him over 15 years of proven experience from the professional consulting engineering sector within Australia. Dean has designed building services specifically HVAC, managed multi-state departments at a national level and created Digital Engineering Initiatives such as, setting up specialised BIM/Digital Engineering sections whilst working at Cardno ITC and JHA to embrace & address the “Great Digital Change” within the construction industry. Dean has previously presented at events as an invited speaker such as Autodesk University, BIMMEPAus Construction Innovation Forum, Australian Institute of Hotel Engineers and as a panelist for last year’s Australian Smart Skyscrapers Summit discussing planning & designing the skyscrapers of the future through digital engineering means. His current hardened focus is to help bring the digital smarts from within the office and into the on-site construction team’s hands. Predicting, preempting and preventing design coordination issues in the field by way of leveraging technologies such as Augmented Reality (AR) on remote devices and Virtual Reality (VR) within the design coordination meetings as “Work as Usual” processes will be his 2019 goal.
