A commitment to design and to the idea that the limits imposed upon modern building and construction platforms, in relationship to dimensional-free-form cement applications, are overcome by a thorough and well-conceived concept development strategy that contains:
ØAn exhaustive R&D approach that considers all of the elements necessary to clearly communicate the viability and sustainability of the project and its life-cycle to the engineers, architects, designers, and diverse clientele for whom the real-world mathematics are a requirement.
ØAn intense approach to modeling, mock-ups, sketches, and a variety of visual aids that close the gaps, answer the questions, translate the abstract, give direction and apply forward motion to the project. (Mock-Up Pics Here)
ØThe utilization of design and building technologies, CAD, BIM, Revit(my preferred design software), graphics &3D platforms, Solids and mechanical platforms, project(PM) platforms, and essentially any technological platform that I must utilize to communicate technical design and visual details. I am an expert at navigating technological interfaces, even those unfamiliar, but required, given the platform used by the receiving client.
Leadership & Management---
‘See a need, fill a need.’ My experience, training, and education in relation to designing and crafting within the specialty construction sector has given me an insight and reflexive ability to effect change and promote project progress and bottom-line success on whatever level I am needed. I am adept at developing and maintaining pertinent relations and networks, communicating and responding within the appropriate PM framework, troubleshooting, documenting, and managing change, organizing and managing field operations, logistics, and resources, as well as process development. Leadership really is the glue that brings it all together and makes it work.
The timeless value of quality craftsmanship must first exist within the purpose of the individual, supported by an investment of one’s time and energies in pursuit of perfection. For a pure craftsman this is very much a mind-body connection, much like that of an athlete. Expansive by default, always stretching and straining at the limits…And this is what Concrete Abstract brings to the table. An expertise and devotion to the study of numerous concrete & cementitious applications, processes, and systems.
Given the nature of our craft at Concrete Abstract, Design is an inherent and critical aspect of our process. Our design services span the design process from concept to implementation, as well as consultation to complete Turnkey Design.
