Better Know an LF’er: Philip Chan

Posted by on 8/5/14 at 10:41am

As our very first BIM Manager, Philip joined Lake|Flato with a huge task ahead of him.  We watched in awe as work share monitor became an icon we actually clicked on, families “flexed” and models linked. Phil re calibrated our expectation of how a building model could perform.  Working with a strong headed, opinionated and often impatient group, Philip successfully played a key role in allowing individual projects to run smoothly while pushing forward with big picture BIM goals.

It’s hard to remember how we navigated revit without his skills and we are already missing him.  We hope Seattle treats you and your girls wonderful!  And by the way, is that new door family ready?
