bill mclaughlin
Senior Drafter, BIM

Bill joined Platz Associates in April of 2017 with over 12 years of construction design, and graphic rendering experience on a wide range of commercial and residential projects. He has a base of knowledge developed from years of working with construction professionals on the design of structural, architectural, mechanical, HVAC, electrical, and plumbing systems. Practice of administrative support for construction, supplier, and building department professionals helps to provide a coherent transition from design to implementation. With a background in construction labor, together with design, and administration practice; Bill helps to provide sensible and efficient solutions for the client.  

Rendering, and graphic presentation has taken on a growing role in construction development. With the most modern software and continuous development we have found that providing detailed and accurate representations of a finished product is very helpful in securing projects, winning contracts, and conveying the vision throughout the construction process. With the combination of construction experience, and three dimensional software Bill is capable of producing realistic renderings, and videos which then transcribe directly to construction documents leading to a predictable outcome for the vision of a project. 

With the experience of over 250 building and construction inspections, Bill has the insight to foresee possible issues, helping to make the construction process as seamless as possible. This is an asset to the creation of construction documents that provide clear direction incorporating all aspects of a buildings design.
