"Leading the Knowledge & Innovation team at Jasmax taps into my core drivers: connecting people – those with the knowledge to those that need it; and continuous improvement through engagement with the issues and opportunities facing our clients and the industry. It’s fascinating and a privilege to be leading a team at the forefront of innovation in the industry.”
As the Knowledge & Innovation (K&I) lead at Jasmax, Sue has been instrumental in defining and leading the firm’s knowledge and innovation strategy. The K&I team draws together specialists across the areas of contractual and technical delivery, sustainability, BIM process and technology, and digital innovation.
Under Sue’s astute leadership, the team seeks to capture and share knowledge, and investigate, test and implement new processes and technologies across the practice to enable our architects and designers to consistently deliver quality projects for our clients.
Originally from the UK, Sue arrived in New Zealand in 2000. She began working at Jasmax soon after and has never looked back. Her first project at Jasmax was as Project Architect for the redevelopment and restoration of the Chief Post Office, which formed the entrance to Britomart Transport Centre.
Prior to moving to New Zealand, Sue had a successful career as an architect in London for seven years. From Polo facilities to the restoration of Reading Town Hall and Museum, her experience includes heritage projects, educational and cultural facilities.
“Architecture is tangible. There is a great joy in seeing a concept become a realised building. The impact of well-designed buildings and landscapes on the wellbeing of the people who occupy and interact with them cannot be undervalued. It’s incredible.”
