Registered architects Sue Marshall and Justin Evatt have recently joined Jasmax’s principal leadership group.
Managing principal, Marko den Breems, comments, “Being able to grow the Jasmax leadership group demonstrates the privileged position we are in. Sue and Justin’s appointments recognise the leadership, the special commitment and contribution they have both demonstrated to the betterment of architecture and design delivered in New Zealand”.
“Their specialist talents and expertise continue to push our teams to provide industry-leading service and design for our clients and our communities.”
Sue Marshall is Jasmax’s Head of Knowledge & Innovation. She has been instrumental in defining and leading the knowledge and innovation strategy at Jasmax, which seeks to capture, develop and share knowledge across the practice and enable our architects and designers to deliver quality projects, consistently, for our clients.
Sue leads a team of specialists across the areas of contractual and technical delivery, sustainability, BIM process and technology, digital innovation and visual communication. Prior to this role, Sue, a registered architect, led the restoration and conversion of the Chief Post Office; the main entry into Britomart’s iconic Transport Centre.
Justin Evatt is attuned to listening and designing for the people, the community, and the environment. He has delivered multiple award-winning schools and libraries across New Zealand. Some highlights of this work are Avondale College, which received a top accolade from the New Zealand Institute of Architects in 2015 National Awards, as well as New Zealand’s first net zero energy school, Pegasus Primary, a pilot for the Ministry of Education in 2014.
Justin is acknowledged as a designer for the community, engaging with local mana whenua and multiple stakeholders to integrate artist and cultural inputs into New Zealand’s built environment – this is exemplified in Whangarei Library. These successes have led to his appointment as lead project architect on New Zealand’s single largest school redevelopment, Western Springs College.
