What’s new in AEC Technology? Join us to hear perspectives from a Designer and Contractor team

Technology has the power to impact what we design and how we build the buildings in our community. Learn how Drones,  Lasers,  Data, Imaging, 3D Printing, custom computational scripts, and more are used to design and deliver high performing projects to our clients. Join Whitney Keever from Skanska and Ryan Johnson from Clark Nexsen as they share the impact of technology on Fitts-Woolard Hall, NC State’s new $100 million engineering building. Learn about how these technologies were applied to this project as well as how future AEC technologies can impact the design and delivery of future projects.


A special thanks to our sponsors Optima Engineering and Celito!

Featured Speakers

Ryan Johnson, Computational Design Specialist, Clark Nexsen

With more than 15 years of experience, Ryan Johnson’s project experience ranges from higher education facilities to commercial buildings and parking decks. He founded and led our internal Tech Studio for five years. But technology comes second to architecture for him. He is most interested in applying technology as it relates to the building envelope.

Ryan currently serves as chair of the The American Institute of Architects Technology in Architecture Practice (TAP). He was asked to serve on the National Advisory Group in 2017 for a two-year term. This AIA Knowledge Community monitors the development of computer technology and its impact on architecture practice and the entire building life cycle, including design, construction, facility management, and retirement or reuse.

Ryan holds a Master of Architecture from NC State University and a Bachelor of Science in industrial drafting and design from Appalachian State University. 

Whitney Keever, Senior Project Engineer, Skanska

Whitney Keever has been with Skanska since 2017 where she started as an intern and risen to become a Senior Project Engineer. She grew up in construction and would ride around with her father to various job sites where she got her first taste of the industry. It was from these experiences that lead her to East Carolina University where she completed her Bachelor’s degree in Construction Management. 

Whitney is an advocate for women in the field of construction and the former President of Women in Construction and Technology. She prides herself on being detail oriented, a strong team member, and an exemplary mentor and role model to her colleagues.

When asked to share something about the industry she said the following, “For the girls out there that are hesitant about it, don’t be. Construction is awesome, and it’s only getting better.”
