Eric started his career in the Architectural industry working for HOK in Chicago IL after graduating from the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee with a bachelor’s in architecture. In Chicago he worked one of the first projects in the office to utilize Revit and BIM and from then on he was hooked on BIM. Eric began to then focus his career on the integration of technology and software with Architecture working as a BIM specialist, helping teams better utilize BIM and mapping out standards and workflow. From there Eric started looking at how to start to tie in other technology and tools to BIM, such as external databases, visualizations, and more. Eric has used this idea of integration as a guiding principal in his work and now leads a team of technologists to solve problems and expand the scope of services at Flad.
