    Background

    Steve navigates the ever-evolving nexus of design and technology to keep KPFF Portland at the leading edge of structural engineering. Directing the firm’s Building Information Modeling (BIM) program, Level of Development (LOD) standards, and virtual reality initiative, Steve synchronizes the needs and expectations of clients and project partners with the work of internal teams. He ensures drawing sets are delivered to clients at the required level of completion within expected schedules, project standards, and budgets using required platforms including Revit, AutoCAD, Microstation, and Fuzor. Through cloud-based Revit collaborations, Steve has enabled KPFF engineers to seamlessly integrate design efforts with other project disciplines. He has translated these collaborations into virtual environments that give clients an unparalleled, first-person experience of future project spaces. Steve joined KPFF in 1995 after 5 years of active duty in the U.S. as an Operations Specialist and decorated service in the Persian Gulf War. He leads KPFF’s BIM Standards and Software committees and is an active member of Autodesk Users Group International (AUGI), Portland Revit Users Group, Central Oregon Revit Users Group and BIM Users Group of Portland.
