As part or as leading a team in design or in project management on site, would you like to know what skills and digital tools Leanne and Davin use in practice?
Professionals learn at all stages of their career, particularly from the experiences of the Owners, Architects, and construction workers who bring with them practical knowledge. Using communication skills to tap into the knowledge of those around you allows for creative insights to be made in design and in the onsite construction processes.
Digital tools enable real time collaboration amongst engineers, architects, designers, and the trades – however real face to face time for teams is also critical to collaborative team building. Fast+Epp collaborated on the Stanley Milner Library project with architects from Stantec in Edmonton Alberta and Teeple in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
Leanne Stinn and Davin Lewis of Fast + Epp shares insights on the skills and digital tools in their everyday work – either virtually or in person.
