LCI-UK is delighted to announce that this year's keynote speakers will be:

Keynote 1: Digby Christian

Digby Christian Director of Integrated Lean Project Delivery, Sutter Health

Digby Christian

From 2006 - 2007 Digby managed Sutter Health's very first Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) project, a Medical Office Building in Fairfield, California.

From 2007 - 2013 he managed the award-winning project to build the 130 bed, 230,000 sq.ft. Sutter Health Eden Medical Center: under budget, ahead of schedule, and with no compromises to Sutter's conditions of satisfaction - the first large complex project delivered under an IPD contract in the USA. That project introduced the concept of ‘design for fabrication’ to Sutter Health and created a workplace environment that allowed the team to push the limits of the possible with BIM in the project design phase.

He also had lead responsibility for re-negotiating $2.7 Billion in IPD contracts and re-organizing the teams, processes and culture at the Van Ness and Geary Campus and St. Luke's Campuses projects in San Francisco, California. These two projects are currently 70% complete and on budget and on time and due to open in 2018 and 2019.

In 2014 he co-authored, then presented, a paper on a new concept called Four-Phase Project Delivery at the International Group for Lean Construction conference in Oslo, Norway, which arose out of the learning of the prior seven years.

His current responsibilities are the development of an Expedited Project Delivery service line, and the training and mentoring of project delivery staff in the special skills needed to be successful in the integrated lean project delivery environment.

 

Keynote 2: Anna Evans and Jaimie Johnston

Anna Evans Construction Programme Director, PETP, Ministry of Justice 

Anna Evans

Anna Evans works for the Ministry of Justice as Design and Construction Programme Director for the Prison Estate Transformation Programme.

The role involves delivering a modern prison estate that supports the successful rehabilitation of the prison population - with all the benefits that has for reduced reoffending and the maintenance of rule of law. The current estate costs the tax-payer around £25,000 per year for each prison place – and some of the facilities are very outdated and unsuited to successful rehabilitation. Anna's role involves delivering the future estate in a way that provides a better environment for prisoners, visitors and staff – all whilst ensuring lower ‘whole of life’ estate running costs.

Anna is also the deputy head of the project delivery profession at the Ministry of Justice (MoJ), which involves driving up project delivery capability across the MoJ in support of the departmental project community and wider Government Project Delivery profession.

Prior to her current role Anna worked, for four years, at the EFA as Regional Project Director, leading on the delivery of new school projects -  managing a multi-disciplinary team to deliver 31 design and build projects across the North East, with a total value of circa £250m.  Anna moved to the EFA after spending four years as Head of Property and Projects for the National Museum of Science and Industry, where she led a department of around 50 people to manage the estates across all the sites (National Science Museum, London and Oxford, National Railway Museum, National Media Museum and Museum of Science and Industry, Manchester) to deliver a wide range of projects from national film events to a new internet gallery and including the refurbishment of the Flying Scotsman.

Prior to her four years in the museum sector, Anna spent twenty years in local government, initially as a building surveyor and for the majority of the time in Education, developing and delivering capital projects within the City of York, where she led a project delivery team of around 20.

 

Jaimie Johnston Head of Global Systems at Bryden Wood

Jaimie Johnson

Having joined Bryden Wood shortly after the practice's formation in 1995, Jaimie has a particular interest in the processes used to organise projects; controlling the flow of information and delivery to dramatically improve efficiency in design and construction.

These techniques have been implemented on a number of large projects such as London Heathrow Terminal 5, Terminal 2 and major frameworks for clients including GlaxoSmithKline, the Metropolitan Police Authority, London 2012 Olympics Athletes’ Village and on the Circle rollout of private hospitals. Jaimie is currently leading a team in the design of the new prison estates transformation, a £1.2 billion programme for the Ministry of Justice, and developing the DfMA approach for their delivery.

Jaimie was a member of the UK Government Cabinet Office BIM Core Team, coordinating work packages relating to productivity and delivery, and was instrumental in delivering implementation strategies and early adopter projects in the public sector. He is now a part of the Digital Built Britain team and recently wrote the report 'Delivery Platforms for Government Assets: Creating a Marketplace for Manufactured Spaces'. This has been adopted by Digital Built Britain as the key articulation of HM Government's aspiration to adopt a more manufacturing-led approach to construction.

Jaimie is the Head of Global Systems at Bryden Wood - this includes both physical systems (design for manufacture and component build solutions for healthcare, education, aviation, pharmaceutical and infrastructure projects) and information systems (data analysis, digital delivery and BIM) for projects in the UK, Europe, Russia and Singapore.

Jaimie regularly speaks at conferences in the UK and abroad on the subjects of BIM and modern methods of construction.

 

Keynote 3: James Elford  Delivery Director – London Bridge Station, Costain Ltd

James Elford

James is the Delivery Director for one of the largest and most complex infrastructure projects in the country, leading the redevelopment of London Bridge Station with the mantra of 'Proudly working together, improving lives and serving London'. The project delivers a total re-build of the aging London Bridge station, with fifteen new platforms and a concourse the size of Wembley Stadium - it will significantly ease the flow of train services on the Thameslink route through Central London.

James has fifteen years experience working for Costain Ltd in some of the more challenging and diverse major projects in recent years - Grade 1 refurbishment, science research facilities, hospitals, train stations, all of which have required clear leadership and direction. His project management techniques to control the many legged beasts that major projects are have developed over the years and are being put to great use on the biggest challenge yet - the £1bn works at London Bridge.
