EVENT ORGANISER AND SPEAKER

Nathan Hildebrandt | Director, Skewed

Website   |   LinkedIn   |   Twitter

Nathan was told in his second year of Architecture school that his hand drawing was poor and that he needed to find a new way to present his ideas. He went away and taught himself ARCHICAD. Today he is considered one of the best users of ARCHICAD in the world. His philosophy is quite simple, when presented with a problem or a challenge he will find a way to overcome it and deliver an outcome that is superior to where he was before. He is skilled in learning new technologies and understanding quickly whether they can be applied in business to improve effectiveness and efficiencies of day to day operations.

Nathan is highly driven and motivated to succeed. Primarily his focus is on client satisfaction. He achieves this through learning and understanding their key needs and working within budget constraints with his project team to deliver successful projects. His demonstrated achievements lead to him being offered an ownership position at Fulton Trotter Architects and the long-standing relationships he has maintained with clients with some that have lasted over 10 years. Having left Fulton Trotter Architects Nathan now provides Architectural, Digital Services and Training through his business Skewed.

Lachlan Green | Architect, Fulton Trotter Architects

Website   |   LinkedIn   |   Twitter

Lachlan Green is a registered Architect at Fulton Trotter Architects. Starting in a small home office practice using 2D workflows he quickly realised the advantages of a BIM platform. Determined to achieve faster, easier and more accurate workflows, Lachlan began self-training in ARCHICAD. Step by step, each project was pushed further than the last, to the point that all documentation was created in ARCHICAD with live sections, elevations and interactive door & window schedules. Seeking ways to further improve results Lachlan turned to GDL, the native programming language within ArchiCAD used to create parametric objects.

In 2012, Lachlan joined Fulton Trotter Architects and under the leadership of Nathan Hildebrant, helped to dramatically overhaul documentation workflows leading to increased accuracy and efficiency. Most recently he was tasked with creating the offices' template for ARCHICAD 23 with a focus on improving embedded data in favourites and how it exports in IFC.

FEEDBACK FROM ATTENDEES OF ARCHINTENSIVE 2020

"Well worth the time in my daily business"

"It's a must attend for all serious ARCHICAD users."

"What I learnt from ARCHINTENSIVE will save me going down lots of dead ends. It really helped sharpen my focus on those things that will save time."

"The spread of topics across the sessions was really good. Can't imagine anyone would have walked away without a bunch of key 'take-away' ideas or learnings, regardless of the size/type of practice they work for."

"The breadth of knowledge shared at ARCHINTENSIVE makes this a not-to-be-missed addition to the ARCHICAD training calendar for future years."

"I think people are really hungry for ARCHICAD events like this.  Great opportunity to meet like minded people, learn new tricks & extend your knowledge not only in ARCHICAD."

"You don't know what you don't know, now I know a little more."

"The knowledge and expertise present at ARCHINTENSIVE provides an in-depth snapshot into what the software is capable of when utilised by masters of the technology. It provides takeaways that are invaluable by the participants to take back to practice and improve processes that far outweighs the investment to get to the event. Thanks to Nathan and everyone else who talked at the event."
