Kristen Cole is a Mechanical Engineer with AECOM in Los Angeles and is a licensed professional engineer in California. She has been fortunate to work on cutting edge research laboratories and campus projects during her time with AECOM. During the design of mechanical systems for these large scale projects she had often wondered if there was a way to eliminate the time-consuming and mundane tasks that come with every architectural change or recalculation of building loads. After watching a webinar on using Dynamo she was inspired to bring automation to mechanical system design to eliminate those mundane tasks and focus her efforts elsewhere. Her Dynamo scripts and workflows have become some of her most valuable tools. Kristen has been in the AEC industry for 6 years and using Revit for 5 years.
