Lawray hires from Capita

Lawray Architects have appointed BIM manager John Evans in the practice's Wrexham office to develop the firm's evolving software strategy.

Evans will join Lawray's senior management team in the region, alongside director Keith O'Hanlon and David Hughes. Lawray plans to deliver BIM Level 2 across its project portfolio by January 2014, two years earlier than the UK Government deadline.

Evans joined Lawray Architects following eight years as BIM strategist and manager at associate director-level for Capita Symonds.

Keith O'Hanlon said: "Lawray have invested heavily in Autodesk Design Suite/Revit software as part of our BIM delivery process which will be managed by John."

Evans added: "We want everyone to realise the commercial benefits that can be accrued from the well-managed Level 2 BIM projects we are engaged on. This means educating our clients and contractors as to what BIM really means for them, as well as selling our own vision and driving quality architecture and service provision. It's much more than 3D modelling in Revit and value engineering."

Lawray Architects employs 23 staff across offices in Wrexham, Cardiff and London, working in all sectors, with a particular expertise in the education, blue light, commercial, healthcare and residential sectors.
