Denver, CO (January 19, 2018) – PCL Construction’s President
of US Buildings, Deron Brown, has been recognized as one of Engineering
News-Record’s Top 25 Newsmakers for his contributions to
advancing innovation and technology in the architecture, engineering and
construction (AEC) industry.
The annual Newsmaker list is
determined by a committee of ENR editors who select industry professionals who
have gone above and beyond to improve the construction industry and the public.
Deron’s desire to advance
technology in the industry, and at PCL, led to the creation and sharing of PCL
PartsLab, an Autodesk Revit add-in that continues to revolutionize how the industry creates and manages construction
documentation. Since being made available to the public in October 2016, PartsLab has
been downloaded more than 1,700 times and is one of the top-rated Revit
construction-specific add-ins on the Autodesk App Store. He
strives to shift the mindset of the industry away from one where people only
share the issues or challenges they’ve solved. Instead, he wants organizations
and professionals to share how they solved these complex issues, and for the
tools and resources to be made available so others can experience the same
result. It was this leadership and insight that led him to be recognized
as a Top 25 Newsmaker.
The awardees will be recognized in
ENR’s January 22 issue and at the Award of Excellence event in New
York on April 5.
