We are excited to welcome Aseem Deshpande to Clark Nexsen as Director of Design Technology. In this new position, he will be leading the firm’s use of technology to advance the creation of transformative solutions across all areas of our practice — building environments, bridges and transportation, industrial processes, automation controls and more. From BIM to virtual reality and beyond, he will support the firm’s design teams through R&D, training, and mentorship.
“We are committed to being on the edge of design technology, thought leadership, and implementation,” says Clark Nexsen Chief Innovation Officer, Bill Keen. He continues:
“Aseem’s insight and years of experience in leveraging technology will be a tremendous asset as we continue to strengthen Clark Nexsen’s position as an industry leader.”
At the intersection of design strategy and exploration, Aseem puts technology broadly in three buckets: the first being productivity — standardization of process and content, and staff training and education. The second is innovation — emerging technologies that will have the biggest impact to generate new ideas and push the boundaries of design. Third is the synergy formed by sharing technology insights across disciplines within this diverse firm.
“I am very excited to be at Clark Nexsen and I am looking forward to exploring possibilities that design technology can offer to elevate this multidisciplinary practice,” states Aseem. “I view technology as more than a production mechanism; the goal is to incorporate each platform as an active design tool that informs decision making and improves the design process.”
Aseem is a registered architect and a LEED AP with nearly 20 years in the AEC industry. Design technology has been at the center of his career, particularly as he grew from Information Model Manager to Director of Technology during his nine years with the prominent architectural firm of Eskew+Dumez+Ripple. He holds a Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Pune, India and a Master of Architecture from Texas A&M University.
