Jack Meredith entered the construction industry early (1985) as a young carpenter, designing, building, and renovating buildings as a licensed contractor. To further his knowledge and develop a holistic understanding and pursuit to master the trade Jack studied architecture at the Boston Architectural College for his Bachelor of Architecture degree. His combined knowledge of architecture and construction led him beyond the normative path. The ability to combine his years of construction field experience with architecture led him to the technical aspects of architecture, including management of construction documents, production teams, and virtual construction.
After 35 years of experience in construction and architecture, Jack noticed a few unfortunate oversights that continuously cost projects both time and money. He saw time and time again that the same common problems exacerbated projects. First, designers, drafters, and architects often don’t possess the same field knowledge that construction contractors do, which at times hinders project completion. Next, project timelines don’t always leave space for the time it takes to produce construction documents. Finally, many projects fail to implement QA/QC reviews and coordination.
Advancements in technology have offered a solution to many of these issues. The latest CAD/BIM software programs speed up document production, help track and implement quality control measures, and allow for all aspects of the project to be better accessed throughout. Unfortunately, using tech solutions in the modern architect’s and contractor's workplace also takes a learning curve. Many seasoned, knowledgeable architects and contractor's aren’t up to speed on the latest technology, and it is time-consuming to learn program nuances as technology advances continually.
These common project pain points motivated Jack to create Arcon Consulting, to help assist fellow architects, contractors, owners and engineers to develop a seamless approach to accurate construction documentation, BIM coordination and construction management. Arcon is formulated with a team of highly skilled architects and engineers versed in the latest virtual construction technology. Arcon’s strategic team partners with clients to deliver solutions to create higher productivity and profitability, adding significant value to their projects.
