My guest today is Amr Raafat.
Amr has over 17 years of experience combining architectural, construction, and engineering expertise and is an industry-leading technology expert. As Vice President of Virtual Design Construction & Technology at Windover Construction, he leverages the most cutting-edge technologies such as BIM, laser scanning, drone mapping, virtual and mixed reality, digital fabrication, and 3D printing to streamline the construction process for our clients and project teams. Amr has published multiple articles on construction innovation and is a regular presenter at technology conferences throughout the country. He holds a Master’s of Architecture degree from Boston Architectural College and was recently recognized as the Autodesk AEC Innovator of the Year.
Although we mostly talked about the innovations in construction, it was also illuminating how this is affecting the life science industry considering how much new construction is going on and the cost of not doing something right the first time. If you’ve recently been part of a construction project, you may already have used some of the technology mentioned in this episode.
I had a lot of fun talking to and learning from Amr. I hope you enjoy this interview as well. Here’s Amr Raafat.
