At the Intersection of Construction and XR in Sunny Portland, OR
Logan Smith, CTO
Spatial Nerd, Space Nerd, Space-y
Logan cut his dev chops writing Revit plugins as an architectural intern. The promise of becoming a building architect was creativity. The reality was making the BIM model behave.
Logan spent most of his time as a licensed architect doing the tedious work of model building - creating a 3D Revit model that would, eventually form the legal documents of the building.
Logan found creative expression in software architecture. His proprietary registration software, Risa, brings 3D models into precise 1:1 alignment with the real world.
Maret Thatcher, CEO
Captain of Argyle Cheerleading Team
Maret was born into construction, left it for a boring law career, and came back in her current form as a construction technologist and CEO of Argyle.
Briefly a flagging contractor (you’ve seen the signs--Stop/Slow), Maret paid for law school on the jobsite. Law was supposed to be the glamorous thing, but the price was tedium. Boredom. Lack of innovation. She got inspired when Logan (CTO, Above) told her someone would put the BIM on the jobsite.--"WHY NOT US?" She pondered.
Alternate realities on top of this world made more sense to Maret than arcane legal theory, and Construction called back to her. Now she spends her days helping people understand that AR is just Star Trek for the Jobsite.
Lauren Lizardo, Unity Engineer
Friendly Local User Interface Developer
Lauren is Argyle's foremost Unity Gameplay Engineer and User Interface Development Consultant specializing in augmented reality interaction. Developing a fully immersive interface is no joke.
Lauren joined Argyle early 2020 and continues to help build the easy to use interface that literally follows users around the construction site in three dimensions.
Her skill is matched only by her sense of humor. She prefers a nice IPA and deserves several.
Erik Savage, Sales Consultant
Project Engineer by Day, Tony Stark Sales by Night
Argyle's first fan turned into sales guy. It's fitting.
Erik is an experienced Project Engineer and BIM guy who tested the Argyle prototype on the structural steel embeds of the 4th and Montgomery project in Portland, OR.
Erik consults with construction projects about how Argyle could benefit them while using Argyle to QA his own projects through the Pacific Northwest.
