What is your personal 'WHY' that has lead you to VEC?

As a previous GC client of VEC, I recognized the value of a well planned out project. Speed, precision and predicability were all added values of working with them. I joined VEC's vision of helping clients and channel partners build better together. That without the help of BIM we would continue to be held back by unknown conditions and limited coordination. Proud to be part of a team that works diligently to help the AEC build more for our society and community.

What is your favorite VEC customer success story and/or what is your proudest moment working on a project at VEC?

My proudest moment was when a newly established nationwide GC client stated that we went above and beyond the scope requirements as their mission critical tenant had additional documentation requirements. Rather then say , “we can't do that” to the client, the VEC team rolled up our sleeves and went to work!

What is your favorite memory with the VEC team?

Crafting the LOD videos to bring the beauty of what VEC does in a more approachable way. https://youtu.be/lsUFtcaBQek
