Fulton Trotter Architects
Graduate of Architecture
Lachlan Green is a registered Architect at Fulton Trotter Architects. Starting his career working in a small home office practice using 2D workflows he quickly realised the advantages of a BIM platform. Determined to achieve faster, easier and more accurate workflows, Lachlan began self-training in ArchiCAD. Step by step, each project was pushed further until all documentation was created in ArchiCAD with live sections, elevations and interactive door & window schedules. Seeking ways to further improve results Lachlan turned to GDL, the native programming language within ArchiCAD used to create parametric objects. In 2012, Lachlan joined Fulton Trotter Architects and under the leadership of Nathan Hildebrant, helped to dramatically overhaul documentation workflows. A key component was customised GDL labels used to display data extracted directly from the model. This has lead to increased accuracy and efficiency across both offices.
