In August, most of our team — Larry Gilland, Mary Gilland, Dawn Streb, Michelle Williams, Levi Regalado, and Abby Smith — attended the annual AIBD (American Institute of Building Design) Summer Conference that was held in Denver this year.  

We all attended informative sessions from “Showing your Work in a Better Light”, to an Art Sketching workshop by Mike Lin, to “The Business of Design – Contracts and Corporate Structure”, to “60 Design Ideas in 60 Minutes”. Michael Brightman conducted a session using Sketch-up, and our own colleague Ben Tabolt of CDG Project Studio presented a session on using 3-d BIM software for residential design.

On Saturday night at the American Residential Design Awards dinner at the Governor’s residence, Larry was honored to be inducted into AIBD’s College of Fellows, the highest honor for the organization, which he has been a member of for several years.
