about roddy

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.

"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
