New materials and new technology have shaken up the AEC industry and pushed development forward. For Ian Daniels, Director of Architectural Products at Tamlyn, these new materials and challenges are opportunities to develop creative solutions.

When architects come with a design that presents a challenge, that’s when the fun begins. “We’ll dive into it, use our expertise to know what capabilities we have, and we’ll see if we can make it,” says Daniels.

Modular and prefabricated buildings have been around for a long time, but Daniels says they’re making big strides in style and in the multi-family realm. “A ton of our work has been multi-family, for the most part. And now, we’re starting to see a shakeup in multi-family doing some more prefabricated stuff,” he says.

Whatever come’s next, Daniels is confident that in their ability to adapt to the challenges. “If we all didn’t enjoy what we were doing we wouldn’t be here,” he says. “I think we all have a zest to see what’s coming next and that’s what keeps pushing all of us forward.”
