Atkins’ parent SNC-Lavalin plans to open technology hubs in London, Montreal and Bangalore this autumn, but you can tour the so-called Lava Labs before they open by watching the video below.
The Lava Labs will be fitted out with technology that allows SNC-Lavalin’s clients to “immerse themselves in the huge potential of data and technology, allowing them to visualise, collaborate and deliver their projects in new and innovative ways with greater certainty and speed, while driving better outcomes”.
The Lava Labs will also host events, training and discussions.
SNC-Lavalin has appointed Federico Puebla as global lead of Lava Labs. He joins from Desjardins Group, North America’s largest financial cooperative, where he was responsible for the organisation’s first innovation lab.
SNC-Lavalin President and CEO Ian L Edwards said: “We recognise that technology will play a huge part in the future of our industry, and we believe that the great thinking and expertise of our people is critical to helping shape the transformation of our sector. These hubs will provide our people with the space and technology to think and work differently – collaborating with our clients and partners to co-create, develop and implement solutions that impact the people and communities we serve worldwide.”
