Butz Family of Companies Hires New Employee, Improves Technology Capabilities

Allentown, PA, September 20, 2013 . . . The Butz Family of Companies, consisting of Alvin H. Butz, Inc., Alexander Building Construction Co. and Shoemaker Construction Co., has hired Steve Kneski as a Virtual Design & Construction Modeler. Kneski will be responsible for using Building Information Modeling (BIM) and other technologies to help provide current and potential clients with more detailed representations of their projects.

"Steve's hiring comes at a time where our companies are looking toward the future and how the latest technologies can help them better meet the needs of their clients," said Greg L. Butz, President and CEO of The Butz Family of Companies.

Kneski's responsibilities include creating 3D renderings for use on current and potential projects, and using animations to show how buildings will be constructed and how they will follow the project schedule.

Kneski is a graduate of the Art Institute of Philadelphia, where he received a Bachelor's degree in Media Arts and Animation. Previously, he held jobs creating set drawings for an architectural firm and single line schematics for a lighting manufacturer.

With Kneski's hiring, the Butz Family of Companies is sending a message that it is determined to integrate the use of the latest technologies into its work so that it can achieve the highest-quality output on all of its projects. It recently established a Virtual Design & Construction Committee, which meets once a month to address different methods on how all three companies can improve their use of technology.

"We are committed to providing the best construction management services possible and we feel strongly that establishing a technology-friendly approach will help us in that regard," said Butz.
