Steve Sanda, AIA, is the Director of Implementation of PROVING GROUND. Steve is a licensed architect with deep experience in design and a passion for technology. His unique professional experience has afforded him numerous opportunities to influence the practice of architecture firms with regional, national, and worldwide exposure. Steve’s goal is to use his experience with IT infrastructure and knowledge of architectural practice to tighten the gap between process and product.
Prior to joining Proving Ground, Steve worked as an architect at BNIM. One of his initiatives was the deployment of a centralized desktop environment that connected existing firm infrastructure to a cloud-based solution. This gave designers across the country access to server-class hardware, improved efficiency, and collaboration for remote workers. As a designer at RDG, Steve oversaw the data-mining and visualization of program information based on Revit models. Comparing like-information of building-type program variables, his team was able to influence design decisions and understand relevant patterns and planning practices across a market sector.
Steve seeks to understand components and workflows of design and technology of firms in terms of tools, process, and talent. As a culture driver, his holistic approach includes wellness, communication, and connecting talent together.
