In this episode, our host sits down with Alex Belkofer to get his thoughts on disJointed and the problems facing decision making in the built environment.
As a regional leader and national collaborator at McCarthy, Alex is responsible for the overall strategy, implementation, and execution of the virtual design and construction (VDC) lifecycle process between all project stakeholders. From corporate office to construction site, the VDC Team promotes, trains and guides McCarthy Project Teams through VDC processes/practices over the course of a building’s design and construction lifecycle. Alex works closely with Project Directors, Project Managers, Owners, and A/E partners to establish early expectations and project deliverables at all project phases. Alex is a key contributor serving on McCarthy’s National VDC Leadership Group to enhance the delivery and consistency of VDC/BIM-enabled strategies and best practices company-wide.
Alex’s passion and drive for construction technology is to push the industry to leverage best-in-class solutions focused on effective project delivery and lean principles for value-added outcomes. He is actively involved with various national organizations focused on construction technology such as AGC of America’s BIMForum, AGC of Missouri’s Design & Construction Technology Advisory Committee, ABC National’s Student Construction Management Competition (CMC), Campus FM Technology Association (CFTA) and Junior Achievement (JA of Missouri).
