I traveled to our nation’s capital a few weeks ago for an interview of all things. We are a part of an incredible multi-disciplinary team that is interviewing for a position as BIM consultant to the US General Services Administration (GSA). Other team members include Hallam-ICS, Blach Construction and Gregory P. Luth and Associates among many others. It’s a great opportunity and we are pretty excited about it.
In addition to talking about BIM and making the pitch to GSA I had a few hours for an evening stroll along the Mall including a visit to the new FDR memorial. Here are a few pictures.
