Mark White: Technology Transfer


Mark White, Chief Technical Specialist, Jaguar Land Rover, will be the keynote speaker at the Prototyping Architecture conference on 21-23 February.

Architecture and the built environment can learn from the very significant research and development investment in other industries. The all aluminium body shell of the Range Rover 2013 is an excellent example of focused research and development expertise and teamwork. Jaguar Land Rover [JLR] have built on its own past experience of developing all aluminium body structures, This is JLR’s third generation of lightweight body architecture, achieving a weight saving of 420kg when compared with the previous model, which is the equivalent to the weight of five average adults. This combined with improved aerodynamics results in an increase in fuel efficiency of over 20%. The Range Rover 2013 is a high-profile example of potential technology transfer from other industries.

Mark White has worked for Jaguar Cars most of his career since graduating from Coventry University in 1983. In his current role he is responsible for Body Engineering related System Strategy and Research & Advanced projects, including Light Weight Vehicle technology development for all Jaguar Land Rover models.
