Ian Gordon

Head of Data, Houses of Parliament Restoration & Renewal

Ian wants to help use data to realise better outcomes for society from the built environment and hope to do so as part of my new role as Data Advisory Leader at Arup. 

Ian has worked for some of the UK’s biggest infrastructure owners and projects including National Highways, Network Rail, Transport for Wales, Transport Scotland, Houses of Parliament Restoration & Renewal, and Thames Tideway Tunnel, as well as voluntary roles with the DT Hub and InnovateUK. 

Ian gets excited about the cloud, ontologies and knowledge graphs, digital twins, taxonomies, data models, BI, interoperability, UI/UX, APIs, open data standards, decision support, automation, gravel biking and alcohol-free craft beer. Ian is currently making the finishing touches to his book ‘Data and the Built Environment’ due 2024 via Springer Nature.
