Thomas studied architecture at the University of Sheffield before joining Hopkins Architects in 2006.
Since 2010 he has been leading the implementation of Building Information Modelling (BIM) within the practice and oversaw our adoption of Autodesk Revit alongside many other tools and platforms. He coordinates our BIM strategy and works with project teams, clients, consultants, and contractors to develop efficient digital design workflows and processes. Thomas has presented at digital design conferences and engages in industry-wide groups.
Significant BIM projects that Thomas has been involved in include The Peninsula London which involves the management of over 70 models by Hopkins alone; 100 Liverpool Street at Broadgate with difficult existing conditions to be modelled, complex geometry, and extensive use of virtual reality to explain and promote the project; and the Smith Campus Center at Harvard University working with an existing 1960s building.
From 2019, Thomas additionally took responsibility for IT strategy within the office and so covers the whole range of digital tools across the work of the practice.
