Edward Strain

Ed joined the practice in 2018 and quickly emerged as a key contributor in the technical development arena, particularly around embedded intelligence within 4D Workshop’s 3D documentation platform.

Ed’s parametric modelling skills and problem-solving capability, coupled with his project documentation experience, are effectively harnessed in 4D Workshop’s quest to build “smarter” structural models and integrate key aspects of critical design, documentation and procurement processes.
