John is the joint founder of Blue Thorn. He has been working in the building services industry since the 1980s during which time he has covered all aspects of drawing coordination and modelling within the construction industry and gained an unparalleled reputation for delivering large coordination projects.
Setting up Blue thorn Technology with Jason Isaac-Henry in 2002, he has been instrumental in driving the company forward and acquiring new clients and facilitating our transformation into one of the main players in our sector.
He is still fastidious in his attention to detail and the quality of the work that is output and spends a lot of time ensuring the work of the Blue Thorn team always meets our high standards.
As co-founder of Blue Thorn Technology, Jason has worked at Blue Thorn since the start. With a degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from the University Of Bath he originally worked as a Development Engineer for GEC Avionics.
He learned to program AutoCAD in the early nineties using Lisp and went on to develop a 3D building services package which could be used to coordinate quickly and efficiently in 3D when all commercial packages were still very inefficient.
In 2002 he set up Blue Thorn with John Cooper to employ 3D modelling in the construction industry at a time when 2D was prevalent. He spent a lot of time linking databases back to 3D AutoCAD models to create intelligent models which allowed the downloading and analysis of data from the model. Whilst the industry was slow to recognise the potential of this it has left us in a very strong, knowledgeable position in the new Building Information Modelling (BIM) era.
Jason has consistently tried to push the boundaries of what can be achieved in his field but remains very grounded as to the practicality of innovation. He still programs many routines today that help Blue Thorn achieve their accuracy and consistency where competitors may fail.
Mohammad has risen up through the ranks at Blue Thorn. He was a very successful coordinator using AutoCAD based software but really rose to prominence as the Blue Thorn started working with Revit software.
His technical ability combined with his skill to manage people means he is a very valuable asset in our Project Management team.
Arthur came from a CAD design background having studied architecture in his native Latvia. Since coming to the UK and working for Blue Thorn he had developed quickly, firstly being a key player in the Revit coordination and prefabrication project on the largest R&D facility we have ever done.
He went on to successfully lead a team on a prestigious commercial site in London and earned his stripes here as a gifted Project Manager.
Judy worked as a HR Consultant at Jaguar Land Rover before taking up the post of Operations Manager here at Blue Thorn. She has been fundamental in the push to make Blue Thorn a much smoother and professional running operation.
Since her arrival she has overseen the overhaul of the IT infrastructure, our human resources structure and approach, introduction of a full, policy driven set of rules which will pave the way for Blue Thorn’s ISO 9001 accreditation.
