Since he was a youngin, Daniel has always been about community and having the back of his homies and loved ones. When he was only 18, his sister unexpectedly passed away and it sent Daniel into a very dark place of rage. He started getting in trouble a lot and was even arrested for silly things like trespassing. After making a promise to himself to never go back to jail, Daniel would shift into social work and help kids who grew up like him in Brooklyn. From there, Daniel ended up moving around a bit, ultimately landing in LA where he was given a job as a tour stylist for Kehlani after his initial gig fell through. Inspired by the grind and seeing the world, Daniel later decided to set out on his own entrepreneurial path. He and his business partner Wehleh didn't know exactly what they wanted to do, but they had the name Kids of Immigrants. Soon, they would be inspired to translate their vision to clothing. Kids of Immigrants officially launched in 2016. Daniel and his brand live through their purpose of supporting your friends, spreading positivity, and making your wildest dreams come true every single day.Co-Founder of Claima and Former Nike Marketer, Bimma Williams interviews leading and emerging creatives and entrepreneurs of color about how they were able to build their own tables by turning their hobbies, side hustles, and ideas into thriving small businesses.

The Difference Between BIM & VDC (feat. Allen Angle)

(This episode is a rebroadcast of an interview we did in February of 2022.)   Allen Angle is the VDC-FM Integration Manager at JLL. Allen is full of insights when it comes to the role of technology in construction. Most of JLL's construction clients have some sort of system in place for operations, maintenance, and space management. Allen's job is to help them discern the sexy from the practical. He helps them understand how to capitalize on the modeling that is available and tie together data from various places.    In an effort to ensure better communication, Allen has advocated for some vocabulary shifts. One problem he sees is people just “handing over” projects and then leaving. He discusses the benefits of maintaining communication in an “exchange” format.  Another vocabulary switch he has tried to make is related to the words specifications or guidelines.    JLL's people encourage clients to focus on these three things: Being BIM-driven rather than BIM-dependent. They try to focus on execution/implementation plans, Speaking a common language to reduce confusion about specific assets throughout the design-construction process. Focusing on an owner-driven process that centers on the usability of the end result.   Allen explains that JLL sometimes serves as a broker. Sometimes they play primarily a technological role. Sometimes they operate in more of a consultative capacity. At still other times, they function as owner. Ultimately, everything they do is focused on helping the relevant parties leverage information to more effectively execute the various aspects of the construction process.   Allen walks us through a helpful hypothetical scenario to discuss how BIM and VDC can function together to maximize efficiency. Then we discuss all of these software packages: Revit  Vela BIM 360 Field  Layer  Smartsheet   After talking through all of this, we come around to acknowledge that what BIM means to some construction people is different from what it means to other people. What's important is that we seek to use these tools in productive ways.   Allen's Megaphone Message: Don't get completely caught up in the sexiness of BIM and 360 3D. Your core business needs are what are most important. If you get excessively caught up in buzzword bandwagons, you won't be serving your clients as well as you should be.   Find Allen online: Allen's LinkedIn  Find Us Online: BrosPodcast.com - LinkedIn - Youtube - Instagram - Facebook - Eddie's LinkedIn - Tyler's LinkedIn If you enjoy the podcast, please rate us on Apple Podcasts or wherever you listen to us!

Mike Hazard: Providing a Transition into Civilian Life with the UA's Veterans In Piping Program

In celebration of Veterans Day, this week, for Season 3, Episode 8, our host Amy Peck welcomed Mike Hazard, the UA ITF Training Specialist for the United Association Veterans in Piping (VIP) Training Program, onto the show (26-minute interview). Mike and Amy covered reintegrating veterans into civilian life, challenges attracting millennials and Generation Z, technology as a recruitment tool, and the evolution of technology. About Mike HazardIn 1988, Mike joined the United States Navy. He served as an Aviation Rescue Swimmer and H-46 Helicopter Mechanic for 11 years before being honorably discharged in 1999 as a Petty Officer First Class. In 1999, Mike returned to the UA as a Journeyman Pipefitter. As a member of the UA working in the construction field, Mike was promoted to the position of Foreman in 2000, General Foreman in 2001, and in 2002 to the position of General Superintendent. In 2005, Mike accepted a position with the Southern California Plumbers and Pipefitters Apprenticeship & Journeymen Training Trust Fund (A&J Training) as a Training Coordinator.During the interview, Mike discussed numerous topics with host Amy Peck, including:Difficulties approaching the job market as a skilled and trained veteran, and when the Veterans in Piping program originatedChallenges getting the next generation of digital natives to get in and work with their hands in the tradesSome of the other things, whether it's robotics or automation that Mike is seeing being leveraged that poses an exciting evolution in technologyTo ease the transition back into civilian life, the United Association established the UA Veterans in Piping (VIP) Program to equip military service members preparing to leave the service with sought-after skills that can lead to lifelong careers in the increasingly in-demand pipe trades. Through 18-week accelerated courses - provided free of cost on military bases across the country - VIP participants earn industry-recognized certifications and direct entry into solid private-sector jobs with good pay and benefits. In October 2012, Mike accepted a position with the United Association as a Training Specialist assigned to the Veterans in Piping (VIP) Training Program. Mike manages the day-to-day operations of nine VIP training sites and serves as the United Association's representative for Helmets to Hardhats. SHOW NOTES 4:24  - Amy: "So, from your own personal story, you mentioned that your whole family is in the industry, and you had that support system. Was this program created because, collectively, coming out of the military, you have incredible discipline, training, and skills, yet, the job market can be a challenge? When did this program start?" 9:34  - Amy: "Do you find it very common for family members to be in the trade because it seems like there are some challenges getting this next generation of digital natives to get in and work with your hands? Are you finding that as a challenge as well?"  12:31  - Amy: "We talk a lot about technology, especially in traditional industries. I think on the training side, there's been so much great data to support how training in virtual environments, although they are expensive and cumbersome, they're changing workflows. Do you see technology as a way to train more people and entice more people into the industry?"Contact the Future Construct Podcast Produced by BIM Designs, Inc!

(This episode is a rebroadcast of an interview we did in 2020.)   Brian Ringley is the Construction Technology Manager Boston Dynamics. Much of his work centers on the Spot robot. You could call it an “agile mobile robot” or a “quadraped.” Or you could just call it a robot dog.    But it's more than just a robot dog, and it's more than just an agile quadraped. It's a platform for all kinds of functions. Spot can carry various payloads that serve a range of functions: Autonomous laser scanning  Continuous site monitoring with continuous 360-degree video  Examination of environments that are radioactive or otherwise dangerous to humans   In short, Spot can provide the large data sets that allow project managers to employ some of the more ambitious AI solutions that are now available. Brian shares about a Boston Dynamics partnership with Drone Deploy.     We discuss some unexpected applications of Spot, including some work in the entertainment industry: Latte, the steampunk dog at Universal Studios park A performance with Cirque du Soleil Youtube influencers making weird videos   Brian walks us through Spot's abilities and limitations, explaining how much human guidance is needed for various functions. He's clear about the fact that Spot won't fix all of the challenges with BIM, but he discusses how integrations with things like Avvir show promise.  We discuss the social aspects of robots like Spot, including how people respond when they first encounter a robot like this one. Eddie shares that his initial reaction when he saw Spot was, “That's cool, but what would I do with that?”   Brian discusses the fact that Spot can help contractors pay subs more quickly by verifying the status of their work. (Tyler makes the connection between this insight and our interview with Pete Dumont.) As you can imagine, this technology is advancing all the time. If you're interested in seeing an update on the Spot developments (since this interview was recorded in 2020), check out this video.    Brian's Megaphone Message: Don't confuse technology problems with business model problems.

This week, on Season 3, Episode 7, our host Amy Peck (@AmyPeckXR) was joined by John Rygg, the Technology Strategist and R&D HoloLens Product Owner for the Kiewit Innovation Team (27-minute interview). A lot of insightful topics were discussed during the session, as Amy and John delved into exchanges about augmented reality, wearable technology, and integration into the construction industry. About John RyggWith more than 20 years of experience managing and leading corporate IT teams in developing and implementing enterprise-wide software and infrastructure, John has been recognized as #10 on the 2017 Buildworlds Top 50 Technology Adoption Leaders. For much of his career, he has served in facilitating the technology strategic planning process to determine how IT can best benefit business outcomes. This also includes helping to capture innovation, thinking through corporate strategy, and putting technology to work to achieve it. In innovative and disruptive technologies, John has focused on identifying and driving incremental and disruptive innovation opportunities for field technologies resulting in operational excellence.During the interview, John discussed numerous topics with host Amy Peck (@AmyPeckXR), including:Having IT heavily involved in the front-line innovation at KiewitWhat difficulties pose obstacles to integrating wearable technology into the construction environmentAn explanation of the difference between pass-through video and true augmented reality and the impact each will have on the future of the industryJason's opinion on the delineation between AR and VR and the deployments of both headsets for different utilities Kiewit is one of North America's largest and most respected construction and engineering organizations. Their construction and design engineering professionals work on some of the industry's most complex, challenging, and rewarding projects – whether it's boring tunnels through mountains, turning rivers into energy, or building bridges that connect communities. Kiewit people tackle important projects of every size in any market.SHOW NOTES 4:14  - Amy: "It's also a little bit unusual to have IT so heavily involved in that front-line innovation, so is that your impetus in saying, 'Hey, we need to look at this,' or was that already happening at the company?" 10:09  - Amy: "That [the construction environment] has always been one of the challenges because as great as those devices [wearable tech like HoloLens] are, they're not as rugged as we'd like them to be, and oftentimes you'd have to wear hard hats and rigs that work with hard hats. Do you find that it's the challenging environment or promoting adoption that is the difficulty?"  13:39  - Amy: "Can you explain the difference between pass-through video and true augmented reality, and what impact do you think these devices will have on the future of the industry?" 19:36  - Amy: "I guess this is a question for you, too, in terms of AR and VR. I don't look at augmented reality and virtual reality as competing technologies ...

Culture Driven Vision with CEO of Mancini DuffyWilliam Mandara Jr., AIA, is the chief executive officer and co-owner of Mancini Duffy, a national design firm with a 100+-year-old history and tech-forward approach based in New York City. Bill comes from a family in the business: his father and grandfather were general contractors. He got the most thankless tasks during his teenage summers at his father's job sites. In retrospect, it was a great way to instill understanding and respect for the profession. It was also a not-so-subtle hint from his father that he should be thinking about architecture school instead. He had been at TSC Design for five years when Mancini Duffy purchased the firm's assets in 2011, at which point he was named a Senior Associate. He was later named a principal in 2014, became co-owner of the firm in 2017, and was named chief executive officer in 2018. Throughout his career, Bill's believed in having consistency of vision and values: that we should never put ourselves or our vision ahead of the client's. This consistency lets us respond to our clients quickly, with clarity and authority. This week on EntreArchitect Podcast, Culture Driven Vision with CEO of Mancini Duffy with Bill Mandara.

In this week's release of Season 3, Episode 4 (16-minute podcast) of the Future Construct Podcast, our host Amy Peck (@AmyPeckXR) is thrilled to be joined by Barry Wurzel, the Founder and President at Wurzel Builders.Join our host, Amy Peck, to learn from Barry about Wurzel Builder's work renovating commercial projects in several sectors. Barry brings 33 years of construction management experience to his work. He spent fifteen years working with excellent companies like The Target Corporation and CF Jordan before forming Wurzel Builders in 1998. Over the years, they've worked with numerous companies, including HEB, Walmart, Starbucks, Target, CVS Pharmacy, and Charles Schwab. While it takes a lot to put a building together, Barry has learned over the years that it's just as important to pull together a team, to orchestrate the personalities toward reaching a common goal. Barry is confident that not only will the company be able to offer clients the best quality of work, but also offer coworkers an exciting environment of growth and opportunity.Wurzel Builders' transparent process, comprehensive services, and key sense to detail ensure that they can confidently deliver on time and on budget. They see the gaps ahead of time and offer proactive solutions and discover new possibilities designed with their team's creative viewpoint. As a full-service general contractor and construction manager, we have extensive experience in construction, renovating projects in the hospitality, multifamily, healthcare, retail, industrial, office, and restaurant industries. Their comprehensive construction services, leadership, planning, and proactive approach to projects ensure each client's vision is executed efficiently to meet or exceed their expectations.Highlights of Barry's interview with host Amy Peck (@AmyPeckXR) include:Some of the ways the industry has changed and optimized the building processHow Wurzel Builders find that balance, in our modern times, and shift into more modern building constructs, regardless of archaic methods still in useThe change in types of projects at Wurzel Builders that come with their rapid growth and how that has catapulted them into new sectorsThe origin story and focus of Barry's other company, Southern Cutting and CoringAs a commercial builder and general contractor, Barry Wurzel is a strategist, known for his hands-on approach and open communication style in everything he does, and he's a problem solver who values moving forward over looking back.SHOW NOTES0:12  - Amy Peck introduces Barry Wurzel, the Founder and President at Wurzel Builders.3:26  - Amy: "In your long career, what are some ways, whether it's technology or processes, what are some of the ways the industry has changed and hopefully optimized the building process?"4:35  - Amy: "Coming to more recent times, where we have our mobile devices, iPads, and BIM, there's a lot of technology out there to optimize, but there's still an 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it' component in the industry. So how do you find that balance and shift into more modern building constructs?" 7:10  - Amy: "So let's talk about a few of your projects. You mentioned that you're growing rapidly. Have the types of projects changed? You made a shift from public to private sector. Have you grown into other sectors as the company's grown?"9:54  - Amy: "So in your day to day, what's the focus of your other company, Southern Cutting and Coring? Why did you start that yourself?"14:28  - Amy: "If you could project yourself 20 to 25 years into the future, and you could have any product or service that would just make you personally happy or make your life better in some way, what would it be, and what would it do?"

Although Dan felt like he was fashion's best kept secret, more affluent Black communities didn't connect with what he was doing. But that didn't stop the gangsters, rappers, and athletes from coming through for Dan's styling services. He's been in the game for over 40 years now, priding himself on translating the culture to high fashion.

Jeff Sample is known to many as The Ironman of IT. That title is not metaphorical. He's an actual “Ironman” athlete and he works in construction-related IT. Jeff has worn many hats within the construction world, but he's currently the primary host of the ContechCrew podcast and the “Industry Evangelist” for Join, which specializes in helping owners, designers, and contractors improve workflow through increased collaboration. Information Jeff is all about data. Well, to be more precise, Jeff is all about information. He wants to see everyone in the construction industry use data to make better decisions. Jeff helps others use building information modeling (BIM) data to work more smoothly and efficiently. As we discussed what he does, these insights were shared: Contractual obligations can cause digital waste.  Our goal should be to encourage collaboration. It's not data-driven; it's data-informed. The data is there only to support the human decision-makers. Data leaves room for each party to have their own focus and creative freedom (within reason). The design-bid-build structure creates an adversarial relationship between contractors, which unnecessarily complicates the building process for everyone. Communication is part of our job. We need to help other people make sense of data that means something to us when viewed through the lens of our unique experience. We need to create a climate of collaboration rather than fear of litigation. “Communication is contractual. Collaboration is cultural.”  The Shift Toward Manufacturing We spent a good deal of time discussing the shift toward a manufacturing mindset within construction. We agreed that this will bring as many opportunities as it will bring challenges, and we explored these thoughts:  Wise contractors will niche down because increased specialization is on the way. Robotics will assist to an increasing degree, but they will not replace humans for a very long while. Nuance is not going away. Builders and their “amazing minds” will continue to be essential to the construction process.  Other tidbits and shout-outs in this episode:  Eddie and Jeff are both Adam Grant fans, but Eddie's fandom has gone further with the hairstyle imitation. Shout-out to Kelly Doyle for his insight that “Slow is smooth and smooth is fast” Props to Pete Dumont for his work toward setting up an OS2.0 for construction so we're living in a “neighborhood” together  When handed the megaphone, Jeff explains that we need all parties within the construction industry to work thoughtfully and conscientiously toward making a profit. He explains that our ways of thinking have the ability to drive us into a recession, but he reminds us that construction is critical to the success of our economy and our country. We can employ people. We build the environment. We create the infrastructures. We build the supply chains. If you can look at what the country needs and fulfill that need profitably, you can help this recession be a speed bump. You can be a key component of a vibrant economy.

Nicolas Fonta, General Manager of Extended Reality at Autodesk, joins us for episode 280 of Art of Construction. Extended reality (XR) is the umbrella term for a spectrum of immersive and interactive technologies. It encompasses augmented reality (AR), mixed reality (MR), and virtual reality (VR). You can access XR through mobile devices, VR headsets and glasses, and other technologies. We've poked fun at these terms in previous episodes, but also explored them in detail with companies like Trimble and Enscape. Now we're learning how Autodesk is taking things one step further and combing everything we've talked about before into a single immersive experience that connects the jobsite to the office. With Revit and the Autodesk Construction Cloud at their fingertips, Autodesk is already the largest ecosystem of project data. Now, with XR, their goal is for users to be able to interact with project data in an immersive environment on demand, and in context of who's viewing it and for what purpose.  These are certainly high hopes considering the messiness of construction. But Autodesk is putting their money where their mouth is with their recent acquisitions of The Wild and Prospect by IrisVR, two VR collaboration tools for the building industry used by BIM and VDC teams, design firms, and engineers.  Join Devon and Nic as they discuss Autodesk's journey into extended reality from media/entertainment to AEC, his mission to encompass the whole construction project lifecycle in an immersive experience where data is always in context, digital twins and digital octuplets,  and what the future holds for blending the physical and digital worlds to build as many better buildings as possible.

"If we can remove people from the site to work virtually, there's a huge [safety] benefit to that." "The challenges with terrestrial laser scanning are the huge terabytes files that are generated, and the expertise and the cost of the hardware. The advance of low cost 360, cameras, and the software to do photochromatic data processing of that data to create your virtual tours, but something we can do very quickly with a hardhat and a camera that's $1,000." "We're talking about digital twin technology—taking reality capture and BIM and physics based engineering, to start to understand and to replicate these processes in a virtual environment before we do them in the real environment. And there's some unbelievable cost savings here." "The safest job site is the one that you don't visit." In this episode, I'm in conversation with Kelly Watt who is the CEO of VisualPlan.net. The world of three dimensional data (or 3D) has absolutely transformed over the past several years because of cloud computing (to store and process data), and inexpensive data collection tools (LIDAR, 360 degree cameras, and others). This data enables businesses to virtualise many aspects of operations that are still reliant on people-based processes (such as travel to site). The amount of value at stake is measured in the billions of dollars. Kelly sets out the use cases that oil and gas businesses are now poised to capture.  Kelly Watt is the CEO of Visual Plan, and a specialist with 3D lidar, photogrammetry, video imaging, and analysis technologies. He is also a level 1 thermographer with experience in spectral imaging and reliability testing. Kelly is an SME on 3d technologies working in the past for 2 of the largest manufacturers FARO Technologies and Trimble Navigation. He is currently an instructor at Mohawk College, which is a major engineering school outside of Toronto Canada, teaching digital twins – fundamentals, techniques, and approaches which is a course he developed. He also supported the creation and currently supports the digital twin program at GA Tech Master of Construction Management. Kelly is focused on providing efficient utilization of 3D visualization for critical infrastructure and campus-wide implementations of digital twin technology through lifecycle digital integration in oil and gas, power, utilities, transportation, and complex infrastructure. He has extensive experience in the 3D documentation for risk assessment, security design, construction, project oversight, asset management, and reliability management programs working with large engineering firms.

While that first shop, YOUth, eventually closed...Gavin started making hats and giving them out to people not worried about making money. The more hats Gavin gave out, the more they would end up in the most unlikely places, including on Chad Hugo of the Neptunes and Aleali May. This ultimately led to the creation of Supervsn, a brand dedicated to putting out good energy. Today, Gavin's curiosity continues to lead to new opportunities and new education.

Inspired by her Black and Mexican heritage, her inheritance of feminine power, resilience, sisterhood, growth, and blooming is exhibited in all of her works of art.
