One of Aotearoa New Zealand’s leading education design specialists, Chris Scott is a Principal who leads tertiary education projects at Jasmax. Throughout his career, he has played a pivotal role in developing innovative spaces for the country’s leading universities that greatly enhance the learning experience for students and staff.

Chris is focused on delivering outcomes proven by evidence to deliver long-term value to clients. His projects demonstrate a commitment to sustainability and include some of New Zealand’s most energy efficient, large-scale education buildings. A major recent accomplishment is the B201 Building for the University of Auckland – the highest Green-Star rated building in New Zealand, and he is currently working on the A1 Building for AUT – the university’s lowest carbon and most energy efficient building. These refurbishment projects incorporate timber structures and respond to net zero carbon targets to increase the building lifespans for another 50 years, providing a realistic roadmap towards a low carbon future.

Chris’ dedication to sustainable design was acknowledged at the 2022 Auckland Property People Awards, where he received the Excellence in Sustainability award. The judges agreed that crucial outcomes have been achieved in the built environment due to Chris’ leadership, innovation, collaboration, and commitment to championing sustainability initiatives.
