Based in Plymouth Meeting, Pennsylvania, Steen will provide strategic support and specialized technical expertise for BIM-enabled project delivery. Working closely with design and construction inspection staff, she will help initiate BIM project processes throughout the project life cycle to improve interdisciplinary coordination, proactively manage project risks, and optimize constructability. And she will work to advance the latest open BIM standards, which will allow work to be more easily shared across different platforms.
“As the industry evolves to model-based design workflows, there is a need to utilize new technology, software, and standards,” Steen said. “I’m excited to incorporate lean and agile practices with digital delivery workflows on projects that allow for better design decisions, construction efficiency gains, and better collaboration with all project stakeholders.”
In her 15 years in transportation, Steen has worked with agencies across the United States on various highway and construction projects involving 3D model deliverables and design visualizations. She has presented at many conferences and events on BIM and related topics. She is also a member of the Transportation Research Board’s Standing Committee on Visualization in Transportation.
“Jennifer’s broad expertise and passion for digital delivery will help our clients advance their BIM efforts,” said HDR Highways Director Will Sharp. “Her expertise adds more depth to our growing BIM program.”
