Knowledge, Keywords & Publications

Nathan Wood understands how rewarding construction can be when technology and culture embrace a new era of innovation. He earned his reputation as an industry thought leader throughout nearly a decade of hands-on experience, including award-winning implementation with BIM and IPD. These experiences inspired Nathan to contribute to industry change organizations, conference presentations, and published academic studies.

As a full-time member of DPR Construction’s Innovation Team, Nathan developed a passion for taking what he learned on these projects and scaling them across DPR and the industry. This experience also taught him that when it comes to adopting technology in construction, it’s not one size fits all. That's why, in 2016, Nathan founded SpectrumAEC with a clear goal — solving the human barriers to new technology adoption.

Now SpectrumAEC's founder and chief enabling officer, Nathan helps organizations and project teams successfully adopt change through executive coaching and custom-tailored workshops.
