KC came to Stephen Turner Inc. with a degree in architectural engineering, giving him breadth in architectural design, sustainable design, structural engineering, green building systems, and green construction techniques. Having concentrated his later studies on architecture, he found that there was a significant lack of focus in the discipline on the importance of incorporating effective, efficient building systems into the architectural design process, which led him to reconsider his future career work – and to commissioning.
KC has a knack for presenting complex information in an easily digestible visual format. His training in architectural engineering fosters his understanding of the traditional Design-Bid-Build and Integrated Project Delivery processes as it relates the commissioning process. His experience with technical drafting, graphic communications, and various Autodesk products, such as AutoCAD, 3Ds Max, and Revit Architecture & MEP, allow him to grasp and clearly depict HVAC layouts as they relate to various trades.
Beyond his programmatic strengths, KC has exemplified an innovative, hands-on attitude which advocates for workflow efficiency: early in his time at Stephen Turner Inc., KC designed and fabricated improved testing equipment for daylight dimming photocells which is now used team-wide to optimize the functional performance testing of lighting control systems. KC has also volunteered to lead the redesign of Stephen Turner Inc.’s office expansion project.
