Invest in your talent.
Talent eats tools for breakfast.
Keeping up with the latest digital trends and workflows can be a challenge. With many emerging apps, it may not be clear which are “hype” and which have the potential to revolutionize your project operations, saving you time and money.
We address critical skills gaps that open new possibilities for your firm – enabling you to leverage data, automation, artificial intelligence, and more. We work directly with our clients to understand their priorities and create customized learning opportunities for their businesses.
OUR TRAINING PROCESS:
- Learn about your firm’s current areas of interest and priorities
- Plan for how these skills will be leveraged in your business
- Create lesson plans and examples that align with your goals
- Host hands-on, guided training modules – in person or online
We create learning experiences that engage everyone on your team.
The more broadly a technology or skillset is understood, the greater its chances of a successful implementation and positive ROI become. Changing behavior is not easy – it requires engagement at all levels of a company.
Providing strategic opportunities for your firm to learn new skills is a meaningful stride toward long-lasting digital transformation and an innovative business culture.

Master Rhino-to-Revit workflows with Conveyor
Establishing streamlined geometry and information exchange between Rhino and Revit can save time, remove rework, and support iteration during design. Conveyor enhances the Rhino.Inside.Revit experience with a “no code” user-friendly interface.
- Prepare your models
- Send models between programs
- Leverage Rhino.Inside.Revit
Leverage Rhino Data in Power BI with Semantic
Rhino’s free-form modeling capabilities can be further extended with the integration of data. Participants will be guided through examples for embedding data into their Rhino models, creating live reports, and creating 3D Power BI dashboards.
- Assign properties to model objects
- Create live reports in Rhino
- Visualize your data in Power BI
Analyze Revit or IFC data in Power BI with Tracer
BIM provides the potential for rich, structured sources of data for buildings. Participants will learn how to export Revit data to a relational database, connect to Revit data, and build a Power BI dashboard with the Revit data.
- Extract a database from your BIM
- Connect your database to Power BI
- Visualize your data in PowerBI

LEARNING THROUGH MEANINGFUL EXPERIENCES…
‘Firms often solely focus on selecting the best software in an effort to be efficient and innovative. But, the more successful approach focuses on the truly critical component: people.’Steve Sanda, Director of Strategy

Data Training for Architects
Proving Ground led a series of virtual workshops for a 350-person architecture firm which empowered their team to operate a newly implemented data reporting system. The training provided hands-on lessons to upskill users in Power BI and a popular database format, SQL.
The sessions offered a range of information aimed at increasing understanding across their entire office and establishing skills that matched the needs of the various user groups. Topics included:
- Excel spreadsheets VS. database servers,
- The basics of data organization,
- Leveraging Power BI to create dynamic reports,
- Creating and reverse-engineering templates,
- Technical handoff of their custom SQL schemas
CULTIVATING AN INNOVATIVE BUSINESS CULTURE…
“Typically, we see firms rely on strategies that focus 100% at capabilities of the doers: get a super user, some implementers, and have them equip the general staff with skills. However it is equally important that we drive change at and from the top – Leaders need to be brought on board.”Nate Miller, CEO

Applied Training: Complex Surface Design
Proving Ground was contracted by Studio Gang Architects to develop computational algorithms and workflows for managing geometry on the new expansion of the American Museum of Natural History in New York City.
The team required a process that would allow them to manage the geometric complexity while also supporting the project goal of documenting the geometry in Revit. Proving Ground introduced proprietary technology for developing adaptive meshes and translating the geometry into accurate, lightweight representations in Revit. The approach allowed the design team to increase iterations by positioning Rhino as the geometry development tool of choice and, in parallel, streamlined the Revit-based documentation and coordination process.
