Roddy Handa, Problem Solver.

JD, B.ARCH, AIA, NCARB, ARCHITECT AAA, LEED AP

Roddy wants to make an impact. He sees a lot of inefficiency in design and construction and strives to cut out all the waste. He’s not your average architect (‘cause he’s a lawyer too) and is always looking for new ways to challenge the mainstream way of thinking.

Roddy is a lawyer, architect, and the principal of holo-blok. He is intricately involved with all projects – whether design or building solutions focused.

"Roddy has a passion for new technology and creates a vision that supersedes a lot of firms’ way of thinking as they are typically focused on internal processes and tactics as opposed to exploring the bigger picture that innovation and technology plays in the design and construction industry. His leadership throughout the Digital Project Delivery implementation course is challenging the status quo of our industry to develop best practices." Derek Ciezki, ECA Board Director 2019/2020

Roddy is the CEO of holo-blok and one of the original founders.  Roddy is involved with all aspects of design, documentation, Digital Project Delivery, Building Information Modeling, research, development and implementation.  Roddy is all about finding unique solutions to project objectives so that all project participants can have a successful outcome.  
Roddy is a registered architect with experience in a variety of sectors such as retail, corporate office, commercial, light industrial, educational, residential, and hospitality. With more than fourteen years of experience with Building Information Modeling (BIM) technologies, Roddy’s interest in BIM and Integrated Project Delivery have allowed him to develop novel practices for project delivery. These novel practices aim to streamline the design and construction process, and provide a product to owners that contain endless opportunities for post-occupancy goals. This has culminated in Roddy being the lead author for the Digital Project Delivery Curriculum for the Edmonton Construction Association and the International Facility Managers Association - NAC. In addition, Roddy is a non-practicing lawyer in the province of Alberta.  This legal background gives him a multifaceted perspective during projects and a deepened understanding of opportunities and challenges which may arise.

Problem solved.

Dan loves coffee.

holo-blok also produces media. Dan is in charge of that.
"Everyone has a story. Even buildings," he says, "and all those stories need to be told."
From videos to photographs to audio podcasts, if you or your building has a story to tell, holo-blok can produce the media that can help you tell it.

Things are a little in flux right now, but that suits us just fine. We'd love to zoom, google hangout, email or telegram to discuss your project. Or we can grab a real coffee 6 feet apart If you're looking to contact one of us directly, see our team page.
