Join us on Thursday, May 13th for Best Practice, a virtual fireside chat series dedicated to practice operations at architecture firms and beyond. From pain points to potential, hear how leaders in the architecture and engineering industry are innovating through new business models and managerial techniques.

We’re chatting with Amy Baker of Amy Baker Architect and Christopher O'Hara of Studio NYL.

Amy Baker is an Architect and Specifications Consultant at Amy Baker Architect, a commercial architecture and spec consulting firm located in Royal Oak, Michigan that provides a variety of architectural services for new construction, addition, and renovation work. With experience in retail, daycare centers, multi-family residential, commercial office build-outs, entertainment, light industrial, and restaurant work, Amy Baker Architect provides design and construction document services for commercial projects. For architect clients, Amy focuses on specific technical services to support project teams, including third party drawing reviews, code reviews, and construction specifications. Amy is on the Board of Directors for the metro-Detroit chapter of the Building Enclosure Council (BEC-GD) and was recently nominated and voted onto the Board of Directors for the Air Barrier Association of America (ABAA). "My heart lies in construction detailing and building science.  I enjoy the tedious tasks that many architects loathe, like spec writing, building code studies, and coordinating door hardware schedules."

Christopher O'Hara is the Founding Principal and Facade Director at Studio NYL, a Boulder, Colorado-based structural engineering and facade design firm known for its exemplary skills. The firm has earned the trust and respect of architects around the world for delivering truly innovative design-led solutions that exceed the conventional. Founded in 2004 by Chris O'Hara, PE and Julian Lineham, PE, Studio NYL's vision is rooted in the founders' belief that all architectural design can be elevated through the inventive use of structures that enhance rather than limit design. It is this passion for raising design standards through the "artful use of structure" on every project—whether humble or grandiose in scope—that drives their distinctively poetic approach. The Skins Group is a division of Studio NYL that provides a full service facade design team specializing in thermal modeling, moisture/condensation analysis, in-depth detailing and more.  The Skins Group works closely with contractors, architects and building design teams around the world, and is often sought out by facade consultants and architects needing assistance with challenging systems. 

In this 45 minute chat, we'll talk to Amy and Chris about building your technical team with specialists.

Find out:

  • Lessons learned from working with many architecture firms
  • Why work with a technical consultant vs hire in-house?
  • Everything from spec writing to facade engineering
  • and more!
