The company recognises the need for accelerating the use of digital practices in order to better serve our clients and improve project delivery. In addition to finalising our BIM Level 2 accreditation, I look forward to consolidating our digital approach across all areas of the company in the UK and across the globe over the coming months.”
Craig Huntbatch, Resident Director of Royal HaskoningDHV UK operations also added: “We’re delighted to welcome Casey to the team here in the UK as part of a round of recent strategic hires across the business. We have strong intentions for growth in the UK market and increasing our digital practices will undoubtedly drive this forward and offer better outcomes for our clients.”
In addition to his professional role as an experienced architect, Casey is a passionate advocate for encouraging future generations of the industry. As such, he is heavily involved in school education as a STEM ambassador, is currently a postgraduate guest lecturer at Middlesex University and has lectured at the University of Westminster and the Bartlett in relation to the modern construction industry, digital communication and current trends and standards in BIM.
