Challenging traditions for positive impact
Break down barriers
For far too long, the AEC industry has been inherently confined to the silos of each stakeholder’s contractual role. These silos are significant contributors to the waste and inefficiency in the industry. We seek like-minded partners willing to break down barriers, engage in open debate on best practices and new workflows, and adopt a willingness to share project data for greater outcomes.
Join the Big Room and innovate together
The Big Room is a lean approach to support collaborative behavior among like-minded partners and stakeholders. Our partners willingly abandon the traditional mindset and utilize the Big Room environment to innovate and create more efficient workflows, technologies, and data-driven results that benefit all members.
Be willing to share ideation
We learn from each other. The KLH team has a long-standing willingness to share the challenges and successes we have encountered along our lean journey. We commit to learning from our partners and contributing ideas to achieve something greater than ourselves.
KLH is a founding member of Demain, a consortium of like-minded firms in the architecture, engineering and construction industry. We share one common goal: by leveraging standards of BIM to totally integrate data throughout the design and construction value stream, we can eliminate the silos and bridge the gap between design and construction. By uniting this unique group of thought leaders, contractors, engineers and architects, we are challenging traditional notions of construction workflows. Our Demain partners include Construction Innovations, DPMG Corporation, RexMoore and Tweet/Garot Mechanical.Visit Demain's Website

KLH is proud to be a collaborative partner with Trimble, a global industrial technology company. Most recently, KLH collaborated with Trimble on the development of the SysQue Model Manager tool, which provides a simple step-by-step method to ‘standardize’ project setup and deliverables. Consistent/Standardized models lead to a more productive SysQue environment and result in a streamlined project workflow. Model Manager was released in SysQue v8.3 and is only available to VDC Pro+ Subscription clients.Learn More
Autodesk Developer Network
As an Autodesk Authorized Developer, our innovative team of software engineers and programmers are on the forefront of technology. They are embedded in the engineering process every day and have developed industry-specific innovations within Revit to improve the workflow that delivers the built environment. The Autodesk Developer Network allows KLH to collaborate with Autodesk and other authorized developers, preview and provide feedback for upcoming software releases, and engage in a larger developer community. KLH also has relationships directly with developers and product owners at Autodesk.Learn more about our custom Revit applications
AEC Value Stream Partners and Trade Associations
At KLH, we have grown to be advocates of a leaner approach to creating the built environment. The firm has joined regional and national trade associations where project stakeholders discuss new ideas and share best practices that aim to reduce the inefficiencies and waste in the industry. We are striving to be agents of change by participating in the following national and regional groups:
- Lean Construction Institute (LCI)
- Construction Users Roundtable (CURT)
- Design Build Institute of America (DBIA)
- Regional BIM / Revit User Groups
