AUTOCAD / REVIT  DRAFTING  SERVICES

SINCE 1985, A VAST MAJORITY OF THE WORK I'VE COMPLETED HAS BEEN DONE IN AUTOCAD... 2D AND 3D.  I SERVED AS CAD MANAGER AND PROJECT JOB CAPTAIN AT TWO LARGE FIRMS WHERE I WORKED FULL-TIME... NTD ARCHITECTS - SAN DIEGO, AND OSKA ARCHITECTS - SEATTLE (NOW OLSON / KUNDIG).  AT THESE FIRMS I WORKED ALONGSIDE THE PARTNERS AND PRODUCTION HEADS TO COORDINATE AND TO DEVELOP CONSTRUCTION DOCUMENTATION TECHNIQUES, CAD STANDARDS, AND ON-SCREEN AUTOCAD CUSTOMIZATION MENUS AND CAD MANUALS. THE GOAL OF THE WORK I PERFORMED WAS TO ENABLE A VARIED WORK STAFF (USUALLY CONSISTING OF EXPERIENCED PROJECT ARCHITECTS AND SHORT-TERM INTERNS) TO BE ABLE TO WORK SIDE-BY-SIDE TO DEVELOP AND DOCUMENT THEIR AWARD-WINNING DESIGNS WHILE EASILY IMPLEMENTING THE PRODUCTION STANDARDS OF THE FIRM.

MORE RECENTLY, I DO MOST OF MY WORK IN REVIT-BIM... A "SAME BUT DIFFERENT" APPROACH TO HOW I HAVE PREFERRED TO DESIGN AND DOCUMENT PROJECTS FOR DECADES... BY USING A VARIETY OF PHYSICAL AND VIRTUAL MODELS, AND 3D MODEL IMAGERY TO CLARIFY DESIGN CONCEPTS ALONG THE WAY.  IN THE PAST, I USED AUTOCAD 3D MODELS AS A "PARALLEL EFFORT" TO THE 2D CONSTRUCTION DOCUMENT PROCESS.  WITH AN UNLINKED AUTOCAD 3D MODEL, HOWEVER, THE MODEL CONTENT SOMETIMES LAGS AT LITTLE BEHIND THE LATEST STATE OF THE DESIGN REPRESENTED IN THE 2D DRAWINGS.  FOR THIS REASON, THE AUTOCAD MODEL WAS OFTEN ABANDONED AFTER THE PROJECT DESIGN REACHED A STAGE WHERE A SERIES OF PRESENTATION RENDERINGS WERE DONE.  USING REVIT AND BUILDING INFORMATION MODELING, THE MODEL, THE 2D PRESENTATION AND CONSTRUCTION DRAWINGS, AND THE 3D IMAGERY PRODUCED ALWAYS MATCH THE LATEST DESIGN. 

MY BUSINESS PLAN IS TO PROVIDE DESIGN ASSISTANCE, AUTOCAD AND REVIT COMPUTER MODELING / RENDERING SERVICES, AND CONSTRUCTION DOCUMENT SERVICES TO PROPERTY OWNERS AND TO DESIGN-BUILD CONTRACTORS WHO SEEK TO USE THE LATEST TECHNIQUES TO DEVELOP, PRESENT, AND DOCUMENT THEIR COLLABORATIVE DESIGNS. 

I AM AVAILABLE TO WORK REMOTELY VIA THE INTERNET, OR AS FULL OR PART-TIME AUTOCAD / REVIT DRAFTING STAFF TO ARCHITECTURAL AND MEP ENGINEERING FIRMS IN NEED OF TEMPORARY ADDITIONAL MANPOWER.
