A Partnership of AIA Los Angeles and USC Architecture: BIM EDGE + BIM GAP
August 22–23, 2014
BIM GAP will feature presentations about the bridging GAPs between BIM tools (analysis, construction, facilities management, and more) and also bridging the GAPs between BIM people (contractors, architects, owners, managers, subs, consultants). Learn how professionals are dealing with these gaps towards realizing the full potential of BIM. Who do you call when you need BIM guidance? EDGE examines potential partners in working with BIM beyond your firm’s current capabilities: BIM coordinators, consultants, modeling services, others.

Building Your Business: An Ownership Transition Case Study, Part 2

Yesterday we profiled Herb Nadel, the founder, and until just a month or so ago, the sole owner of Nadel Architects. He discussed the genesis of the firm’s ownership transition. Today, we speak to two of his new partners, Patrick Winters and Greg Lyon about the firm’s future. From the sounds of it, it couldn’t be brighter.

For the new partners at Nadel Architects, the timing of their ownership transition couldn’t have come at a better time. “Future generations will look back and see a paradigm shift,” says Patrick Winters, one of the freshly minted owners of Nadel Architects. “In Los Angeles, we’ve moved from postwar suburban sprawl to urban densification. There’s residential mixed with retail, high rise residential, live/work housing.”

Building Your Business: An Ownership Transition Case Study, Part 1

Now under construction, an adaptive re-use project will house offices. Courtesy Nadel Architects.You’ve grown your business from scratch, seen success, but what now? For solo practitioners, it’s a nagging question. Whether or not you’re close to retirement, what happens to your firm? Does it disappear? How does it carry on without you? Today we begin explore ownership transitions and one firm’s experience. We start with a conversation with its founder; the second part will focus on the new team in place and their plans for the firm’s next chapter. 

Nadel Architects’ creation story starts out as so many often do: A talented young person starts a company out of a house. In this case, the year is 1973, and the house is just outside Los Angeles. Through hard work, patience and skill, the founder, Herb Nadel, expands the business, transforming it into a highly regarded practice with a robust portfolio of local and international projects—everything from stadiums in China to hotels in Los Angeles and Chicago.
