such as Operations and Maintenance, Space Planning, and Asset Management. Since receiving her
BSME from the University of Texas - Austin, Birgitta career has encompassed working for an equipment
manufacturer, Engineering/Construction firm, assembler/fabricator, General Contractor, and for
an Owner. It was during her time in Facilities when Birgitta began to focus on BIM for Facilities Management, and still continues today. Recently Birgitta became the Assisting Director for buildingSMART alliance (bSa)
