James Thomas

Wates Integrated Construction Services

Head of Smart Buildings & Technologies for Wates Integrated Construction Services (WICS) including SES Engineering Services. Over 21 years experience in the HVAC industry working for Tier One MEP contractors specialising in the design, specification, procurement and delivery of BMS solutions and systems integration. Now responsible for creating and developing the Smart Buildings & Technology strategy for WICS and the wider Wates Group businesses. I am a passionate advocate of open, interoperable and flexible solutions built upon converged networks that use IOT principles and technologies to gather data from the very edge of the systems that we install. I believe that data aggregation, normalisation and the sharing of data and functionality is the future of Smart Buildings and that Smart Technology deployment will bridge the gap between building operation and optimised performance. The digital enablement of MEP systems can only lead to greater visibility of performance data and from that, improved interoperability, optimum performance, a pathway to NZC and a far greater occupant experience. I am a collaborative and results focussed engineer that is always striving to deliver best value and technologically advanced designs and solutions. I always seek to engage with our customers, their professional teams, end-users, technology partners and our specialist critical friends to deliver industry leading installations. I truly think that what we install today, needs to be ready for tomorrow.
