Alan R Consulting

 

I have setup and managed computer and CAD (Computer Aided Design) systems in architectural offices since 1984 when I was a very young architect and have worked for four companies and/or firms in my career, for Protekon Architects in South Africa, Ambassador University in Texas, Simons Burch Clark Maris Architects then at Eubanks Harris Roberts Craig Architects in Tyler Texas for 16 years, 11 of which I was an owning partner and principal. In all of these organizations, in addition to working as an architect, I was the resident computer system and CAD trainer, hardware and software expert. I customized the system, established hardware and software standards, trained new users, purchased hardware and software, provided tech support and ran the network and social networking pages.

I am also a highly-skilled architect having designed multiple millions of dollars of large and very successful complex projects, being extremely competent when it comes to construction drawing production and figuring out how to detail a builing as well, producing detailed and thorough documents. I have good inter-personal skills and get on well with clients, contractors, engineers and other professionals. I am also an accomplished public speaker, photographer and artist. But, don't believe me, call anyone who has interacted with me throughout my long career and ask them what they think of me and my abilities.

If you as an architect, engineer or contractor in a small firm need input and / or help from me, for a reasonable consulting rate, I am able to help you on an as-needed, part time basis. Even though I was an owner in a big firm, I am more than willing to help colleagues no matter how small your firm may be.
