This week I interview Patrick MacLeamy, Chairman, buildingSMART International. Patrick practiced architecture for 50 years at HOK, one of the top 10 largest architecture/engineering firms in the world. He began there as a “junior designer” and worked his way up, serving as HOK’s CEO and Chairman from 2003-2017. As CEO, Patrick led HOK’s transformation from a firm that struggled to pay its bills and was close to breaking apart, to one that is consistently profitable, with a company culture where people help each other to succeed.
Patrick is best known for what some call the “MacLeamy Curve”, one of the most commonly cited concepts for researchers touting the benefits of Building Information Modeling (BIM). You may also know Patrick from the phrase BIM BAM BOOM.
