Converse Winkler Architecture, Philadelphia, PA, US, Architectural Designer/ BIM Manager

At CWA I have been working on projects for the Philadelphia Water Department and the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority.

I have been called on to create complete BIM Models and Construction Document Sets for masonry, and precast concrete buildings.

CWA is transitioning from working mainly in AutoCAD to Revit. Using my Revit experience I have developed Revit Standards for the office, including BIM Project Execution Plans, and a complete Modeling Methodology.
