James Hayes | Rehabilitation of West Block


James is a PhD student at the Azrieli School of Architecture and Urbanism. His current focus at CIMS is a collaboration with the Heritage Conservation Directorate (HCD) of Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) on the rehabilitation of the West Block of Parliament Hill. For this project, CIMS is exploring the potential for various digital acquisition technologies (long-range and close-range laser scanning, photogrammetry) and digital fabrication technologies (CNC-routing, 3D-printing) to aid in the heritage recording and conservation of the 19th century West Block building.

James’ doctoral research is an examination into the historical developments of the contractual apparatus that frames the translation process (from conception to construction) in order to develop a critical understanding of how digital communication and fabrication technologies might provide a new platform for collaboration among all of the agents involved in the creation of architecture. He holds a B.Sc. in Architecture from Lawrence Technological University, and an M.Arch. from Carleton University and has worked in architectural practice in Ottawa and Dublin, Ireland.
