Meet Tom Collins: Head of Digital Engineering.

Tom Collins joined us in January as our new Head of Digital Engineering. His initial priorities have been around automation (making what we do more efficient, consistent and of better quality) and transformation (moving us towards new digital capabilities).

Late last year we also welcomed Michal Dengusiak and Jakub Ziolkowski to the firm as Digital Engineering consultants. Based in Poland and Germany, they have previously had great success integrating analysis software with engineering workflows and Revit. They are working with us to recreate and enhance their previous tools, and integrate them with our process flows to help advance our engineering, design and analysis services.

However, the world we’re in now looks very different to the world when Tom started, so how has this impacted his plans? Charlotte Thurston had a chat with Tom to find out a bit more about him and what we can expect for Hoare Lea’s digital capabilities.
