title CAD in Practice Profile: R.M. Kliment and Frances Halsband Architects

summary R.M. Kliment and Frances Halsband Architects (KHA) is a firm recognized—among many outstanding achievements— for designing award-winning computer science centers at major universities (e.g., Columbia, Dartmouth, Princeton). With that design experience, it is no surprise that the firm has adopted an aggressive stance towards its own use of information technology (IT). One indication of this proactive approach to technology is that KHA, with a total staff of 33, carries a full-time CAD/systems manager position, as contrasted with the A/E-firm industry-wide average of one such full-time equivalent staff position for every 40 total employees. In effect, the firm has set its investment in and commitment to the role of IT at a rate twenty percent higher than the industry average. Such above-average investment in IT is consistent with other high-profile design firms that have won the prestigious Firm Award of the American Institute of Architects. (1)
