A leading place maker, Jason is well known for creating successful new communities and regenerating existing towns and cities.
Jason is passionate about working collaboratively with clients and multidisciplinary teams of economists, planners, urban designers, architects, landscape architects, ecologists, engineers and artists. His projects are often large scale, complex and have a lifespan of many years. Jason develops solutions that are rooted in their local place and culture, that have a sound economic base. His design ideas are bold but pragmatic, and often include new homes and jobs, education and healthcare, social infrastructure, public space, and transportation. His ambition is to encourage economic, environmental and social sustainability to promote a better quality of life. As an urban designer, master planner and landscape architect, Jason was also a key figure in the regeneration of Manchester City center and Liverpool’s historic waterfront.
Formerly Jason was president of EDAW and Chief Executive of Buildings and Places at AECOM.
