The last two years have been fantastic. I have learned a lot about the business side of Architecture and can say unequivocally that I am a much better professional & still-unlicensed-Architect (working on it…almost half-way through finally) thanks to the collective experiences had here. I have learned quite a bit about healthcare projects in Texas and how to manage and mentor teams to get things done. It was rocky at times, especially the first few months, but I have to say that working at PhiloWilke was the best thing that happened to me. Amongst many responsibilities (mainly that of Project Manager and also Project Architect), I continued pushing for better BIM processes, thanks especially to the fact that the upper ranks of the firm had already embraced it, so there was never a battle to be had in that regard.
If you’re reading this and are looking for an opportunity to work for a 35 person firm that does 100% Revit projects and are not afraid to wear various hats, including that of a BIM Manager, then I highly recommend this firm. If you have the skill-set and talent to fill this role, please get in touch with me and I’ll be more than happy to pass your information along. Alternatively, go through here and email Ali directly.
This blog will also continue, hopefully with a little bit more frequency as family time and work allows. I am seriously bummed about not finishing up my 3 projects currently under construction or the ones that are soon to be, but I know they are going to be in good hands!
