Design Master Electrical RT makes QC EZ for Conley Engineering

Jeff Gray, co-owner and Principal Designer at electrical consulting firm Conley Engineering, primarily designs schools and wastewater facilities. These days, every school project comes to him in Revit, and wastewater may not be far behind: “So far, most of our wastewater clients haven’t moved over to doing things in Civil 3D and Revit, but we are using it on one facility in California.”

When the company started using Revit in 2009, it significantly improved their old workflow; however, there were still limitations they wanted to overcome. In 2017, he says, “We tasked a few of our employees to find something out there for us that would assist us, and [Design Master Electrical RT] was what they came up with.”
