Melinda S. Hoffman
I began my career as an architectural designer and have worked in the technology market for the Architectural/Engineering/Construction industry for over 15 years. I made the decision to change my path to technology rather than designer. I was working with a nationally ranked Architectural firm doing Revit Architecture support and training, animations, renderings, researching and developing new software, and presenting how building information modeling could assist owners and contractors. I then made a switch to work for a construction company for 6 years as their Virtual Construction Director and helped implement their project management solution.
I have presented Autodesk® Revit and BIM concepts to numerous clients and multiple conferences, including Autdodesk® University. I have worked with companies to incorporate Revit and BIM to produce better collaborated projects from start to finish. In spring of 2018 I became an Adjunct Professor at the University at Buffalo School of Architecture and Planning teaching Revit. My specialties include: Autodesk® Navisworks Manage, Assemble, Newforma, Autodesk® 3ds Max, Autodesk® Revit Suite, Autodesk Recap, Autodesk® Infraworks, Faro Scene, as well as microsoft products.
I am Autodesk® Revit Architecture Certified.
I live in Buffalo, NY with my husband and two beautiful girls.
