Peter Zdgiebloski, has been in the reinforcing steel business since 1988. He was an early adopter of CAD in the 1990’s and later BIM software in the 2000’s. Peter has detailed and coordinated 100s of projects from light commercial to heavy industrial. He has trained dozens of successful detailers over the years, many of which are detailing your projects today. Training and recruitment led him to the local community college where a “Grow your own” initiative was started. There, he instructed basic AutoCAD and Revit classes and became involved in a Region Tech Council. Peter has been involved with CRSI and ACI serving on various committees such as the CRSI Manual of Standard Practice, CRSI BIM committee and the ACI 131 BIM Committee. Within the latter committee Peter helped develop the ACI 131.2R-17 publication and two data exchanges have been derived from it. He has been involved with BIMForum and LOD definitions, crafting a presentation and several illustrations to help describe what reinforcing will “look” like at various levels. Lastly, Peters involvement in the BIM process on key projects with our customers has led to excellent quality and delivery of material.
