Join us on Thursday, June 10th 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 Veronica Quintero and Alex Wilson of KPF.
Veronica is the BIM Practice Manager at KPF, where she raises the firm’s level of BIM maturity within the Digital Practice Team. Her experience spans large scale, complex projects domestically and internationally. She works with teams in the early stages of a project to strategize and implement a successful BIM workflow. Her focus at KPF is on leading BIM implementation across the global offices and integrating design technology tools into the team’s workflows. Her work involves continuous improvement, development, standardization, support and education—all to increase efficiency, productivity and innovation. Before KPF, Veronica worked at leading design firms like SOM and Gensler as a Senior Digital Design Specialist. She received her B.Arch from NJIT and M.Eng in Product Architecture and Engineering from Stevens Tech.
Alex is a Senior BIM Specialist at KPF and a speaker at Autodesk University 2020. He has over 14 years of experience pairing the architectural design process with computation workflows at firms such as Selldorf, SHoP and Robert A.M. Stern. He works under the hood of programs to craft custom workflows for geometry transfer, task automation and data mining. At KPF he supports multiple projects of varying scales and programs. He spearheads the use of Dynamo in the office and other emerging technologies.
In this 45 minute chat, we'll talk to Veronica and Alex about how to manage a BIM practice.
