McMillan Electric has offered electrical contracting services out of the Bay Area for nearly sixty years, growing to multiple offices and over a hundred employees. Dean Macy, PE, works in their Reno office as an electrical engineer. “I just got my PE, so I’m very new to the industry in general,” he explains. “I was a hardware design engineer for the last seven years, so this is new, but my family’s all construction industry, so it’s not like it was my first time seeing it.”
“We are all the way Revit,” Dean says of the company’s general workflow. “We don’t use any CAD software at all unless we’re working with another company that has CAD, then we just import it into our Revit model.” In early 2022, his office was looking for ways to expand its design capabilities beyond what Revit offers: “Our preconstruction BIM manager and I were trying a bunch of different software, trying to figure out what we wanna use for one-line diagrams, for arc-flash analysis, for voltage drop calculations.”
