He has a profound fluency with 3D modeling and BIM coordination that enhances our project visualization as well as the firm’s cross-disciplinary integration.

To that end, he revels in architectural detailing, recognizing that even the smallest features can have an effect on a project’s overall impact.
In addition to Mark’s design expertise, he is a talented project manager and excels at managing demanding projects with compressed schedules. At Strada, Mark has had the opportunity to work on a variety of projects from residential conversions and building renovations to enhancing the experiences of campers in rural West Virginia.
