Evelyn Peterson - CSHQA“People at all levels—AITs, EITs, support staff and senior management—work together on project development and execution,” said Evelyn Peterson, Architecture - Revit Facilitator, CSHQA. 

“We listen to our clients and to each other, so we can deliver high-value solutions to our clients.”


A Focus on Technology

CSHQA professionals work with powerful technologies to design with greater accuracy and flexibility. One of those technologies is Autodesk Revit Software, another is Ideate Sticky

Ideate Sticky is a Revit add-in solution that combines the ease of editing in Microsoft Excel with the convenience of a sticky note. It enables users to link an Excel spreadsheet with non-BIM data such as code checklists, design data, consultant’s data, general notes, and matrix style data directly into Revit.

"Ideate Sticky is a great add-in for Revit. Our engineers love it," said Evelyn. “Sometimes the architecture team use it as well.”
