McVeigh & Mangum Engineering
Sr. BIM-FM Project Manager

I currently work as a Senior BIM-FM Manager at McVeigh & Mangum Engineering, where I manage day-to-day operations for the BIM-FM Department. Prior to this I was the VDC/BIM Manager at Adams Electric Company, a large electrical contractor in North Carolina. While at Adams I was tasked with restructuring and growing their BIM Department, and assisting with implementing prefab across multiple jobs. My last job was a 500K SQFT Hospital Bed Tower, which contained multi-trade prefabricated racks, and required the team to model all conduit (down to 1/2”) for every electrical & data system, exactly as it would be installed in the field. This job posed many obstacles regarding manpower and QA/QC due to the aggressive schedule, but it also led to the VDC and Field teams working very closely together to maximize the benefits of the VDC process for use in construction.

COVID-19 Update

20th May 2020

DBEI has been closely monitoring the COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation around the world. While some parts of our society are beginning to open in baby-steps, none of us know how the situation will develop over the coming months. As such, DBEI has now made the decision to postpone all our 2020 events to 2021 as the well-being of all our partners and participants in our events remains our utmost priority. For new details on each region please visit our event pages. We have also sent communications to all registered attendees, speakers or sponsors for all of our 2020 events.

In the interim, DBEI will be launching several exciting virtual events and webinars in 2020 to continue to deliver the same expertise, insights and knowledge to the AEC industry during these uncertain times. We also have some other exciting initiatives we are working on to continue to provide value to our community, which we look forward to sharing with you all shortly.

We wish to thank you all for your support and appreciate your patience and understanding under the current circumstances and will continue to update our website and the community if there are any changes.
