As the innovative technology developer lead for British Columbia, Aubrey looks after all the major BIM projects. He represents practice technology ability in business development, local education software programs, starting complex models, and setting up collaborative teams. Along with his BIM technician team, he also helps solve on-the-spot project challenges.
Outside of BC, Aubrey and his team are an expert resource for other regions to call on when they need BIM management and support. As a technology evangelist, Aubrey is at the forefront of promoting the integration of technology solutions in our projects. This shows up as a partnership with British Columbia sector leaders, usually in interactive client presentations on how technology could be deployed in future projects.
On top of his usual activities, Aubrey is also currently working on several Stantec creativity and innovation grants. He’s researching virtual reality, augmented reality, computational approaches with generative design, and he’s developing mobile apps—all with the goal of improving our efficiencies and our projects through technology. To Aubrey, this is his most important work, as it keeps his problem-solving skills sharp and his perspective full of new potential workflows.
Recently, Aubrey has tied his passion for art into his work through a partnership with the Museum of Vancouver. There, he’s working on several projects that will showcase our work on Vancouver’s complex urban conservation issues. Outside of the office, Aubrey enjoys creating large-scale, interactive sculptures for music and art festivals. One previous project involved creating a twenty-foot-tall cockroach protecting super computers.
