Patrick MacLeamy

As HOK’s chairman and chief executive, Patrick MacLeamy, FAIA, LEED AP, leads the firm’s strategic vision and direction. He is based in San Francisco.

Patrick is an advocate for transforming the fragmented nature of the building industry to a vertically integrated, highly efficient system that emulates the manufacturing industry. He has supported this vision as a founder and chairman of buildingSMART International, an organization that fosters open, interoperable standards for data exchange in the building industry.

What is the value of BIM over time?

“I believe that owners can save enough money during building operations to pay for a substantial part of the design and construction of that building. The real promise of BIM is better design, better construction and better operations.”
