As Director, Andy is responsible for strategic planning and implementation of VDC technology. Andy’s tenure at PARIC has focused on developing a forward-looking technology plan that integrates cloud-based design and field tools with processes that enable PARIC’s extended project teams to be more collaborative and efficient. With an architectural background, Andy has utilized technology to create building design solutions and compelling presentations. The convergence of AEC technology and a variety of industry experience has enabled Andy to lead an active VDC team with a focus on design and field innovation. Andy and his team work with various technology providers to influence the development of new tools and processes, and this interaction enables their support of PARIC’s core business units. Their use of reality-capture and field layout technology enables better coordinated projects, and highly accurate control for the installation of MEP systems and structural prefab components. The use of integrated technologies has further enabled PARIC field teams to focus on ‘building’ with significant reductions in design related issues.
As a Sr. Coordinator, Brett assists with various technology implementations and draws on his architectural background to facilitate the coordination of MEP and structural prefab design. To support the coordination process, Brett and the VDC team at PARIC utilize reality capture technology such as Laser Scanning and RTS instruments to observe field conditions and coordinate the results with project design models (BIM). Throughout the design and construction cycle, Brett leans on cloud-based technology to coordinate site control, verify fitment, and enable the field teams to layout and install prefabricated systems and built-in-place systems including foundations and walls, to PT sleeves and embeds. Brett’s real world experience with field technology has resulted in his focused knowledge of how to make technology work for PARIC.
