Paul placed third in the Chief Architect Kitchen/Bath & Interiors Design Contest. He has been using CAD programs since his architectural drafting shop days at the local vocational school.
“I have been in the kitchen industry for just over six years using the same software all my other competitors were using. I started my career in 2012 at a big box store as a kitchen design salesperson, then got more into the technical end of it in the more recent years.
“I currently transitioned to a team with similar long-term aspirations to become a premier Massachusetts Design Build Firm. I knew that making the switch of software to Chief Architect would be essential for our growth. Not just because the scope of the work we were about to take on required much more detailed plans to achieve smooth project flow, but also to separate ourselves from any competitors.
“I’ve been using the software full time now for about five months. Chief Architect seemed to be quite the hybrid of the other software (i.e. 2020 design and Auto-CAD) from my professional experience. Along with a greater ease of use.
“I watched a few Chief Architect webinars that have been very helpful and started using it a lot sooner than I thought thanks to the ease of use of the program in general.”
