President's Report




Well we have reached the end of my Louisville CSI Presidency. Next week, I will hand over the reins, to Julie Eckert of Tandus-Centiva. She will do great things as the next President of the chapter and I am eager to support her in her endeavors.

 I would like to thank my board of directors, and the various sub-committees for all of their hard work. I would also like to thank each and every chapter member, as your support has helped me and this chapter.

 I will hand over the reins next Thursday at our Awards Banquet at Wildwood Country Club. Please join us for this fun event. Further details about the Awards Banquet are below.

 I look forward to seeing everyone next week.

 Take care and God Bless,


Brent Guiliani

Many Hands Make Light Work.

Your Hands Are Needed

 So it is said, that many hands make light work. As for our local CSI Chapter, in recent years, it has been few hands doing lots of work. We are grateful to those who have volunteered their time to serve, but we invite more to join them. We currently need volunteers to help with all sub-committees, however, we have an immediate need for a Vice-Chair of the Trade Fair Committee. Consider this your call to serve! If you would like to serve, please contact Pat Sloan (psloan43@bellsouth.net) or myself (Brent Guiliani, brent@bainesinc.com).


Time for new officers to step forward. If you have a desire to serve the chapter in this capacity please contact Brent or Julie

Thank you!




Table top displays/presentations are available at Louisville CSI chapter meetings for a cost of $50 for members and $100 for non-members. Each table top includes a 5 minuite presentation of your product.

Upcoming Events




 Program:  “3D laser Scanning for Documenting Existing Buildings”


3D laser scanning is part of an emerging trend to incorporate “reality capture” into our existing AEC workflows. Applications include building section analysis, floor plan analysis, dimensional analysis, ADA compliance analysis, structural analysis and more. 3D Laser scanning enables Architects and Engineers to import accurate and comprehensive existing building geometry directly into their Revit or CAD environment and conduct thorough investigations of existing buildings from their office. By combining millions of accurate measurements with rich context, 3D laser scanning is changing the way design professionals document existing buildings.


Presenter:Josh Ayoroa, Ayoroa/Simmons. Josh has worked in the AEC industry for 9 years. From 2011 through 2014, Josh worked for one of the top 10 manufacturing design build firms in the country. During that time he worked with multidisciplinary teams of design and construction professionals from around the country on some of the most complex projects in the company’s portfolio. These included projects for companies like Siemens, Caterpillar,Nestle, Michelin, Champion Petfoods and Big Ass Fans. Today Josh applies his knowledge of the AEC industry and design-build to provide cost-effective 3D laser scanning and Building Information Modeling solutions to the region’s leading design professionals, contractors and owners. 


About Company: Ayoroa Simmons.   The AEC industry is undergoing a technological transformation as owners, contractors and design professionals increasingly look to better data for analytics and decision making. Knowledgeable owners expect greater precision from the project team from planning and design all the way through to project hand over. The rapid pace of technology presents new opportunities and new challenges to established contractors and design firms. Leading AEC firms have dedicated in-house research and development groups that work to stay abreast of software, hardware and digital workflow enhancements to gain a competitive edge in the emerging data driven AEC economy. Ayoroa Simmons embraces this transformation as we specialize in the practical application of Building Information Modeling (BIM) and Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) tools and workflows.


Services • 3D laser scanning of existing conditions • BIM quantity takeoff • BIM coordination during design • BIM constructability analysis • BIM coordination during construction • Construction documents from BIM • Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) • Shop drawings from BIM • 2D to BIM (architectural or structural) • Architectural Design • Revit and Navisworks deliverables • Design Coordination • Digital renderings • 3D Printing Ayoroa Simmons works with AEC industry leaders to deliver customized solutions for BIM related needs across all major disciplines within the industry. We work directly with contractors, architects, engineers, facilities managers, owners and developers to implement BIM workflows that reduce waste, enhance project communication, promote transparency and improve quality. We do this by working with the best people and implementing the best technology in the industry.
