Jackson Hole, Wyoming based Chris Lee of Design Associates Architects has been relying on ArchiCAD since the late nineties – to design residential, commercial and industrial projects. As a sole proprietor, Lee says he is always looking for ways to be efficient and help his practice thrive. Lee takes advantage of the powerful combination of his skills and ArchiCAD to be the most efficient and compete with firms of larger size. One of his go-to features of ArchiCAD is BIMx and he exploits it to his advantage time and time again.
ArchiCAD “Back when BIMx was called Virtual Building Explorer I began sending models to clients. The feedback I got was great – for them to be able to experience the design in their own place and time was huge”.
Most recently, this technology proved valuable on a current project he’s managing for an executive client. Lee recently competed with nine other firms, “powerhouses” as he put it, to win a high end residential project. In this type of “David and Goliath” scenario, Lee says he credits his triple threat of “killer tech”, namely ArchiCAD, BIMx Docs and his skills with the win.
