BIM, or Building Information Modeling, is not a brand new concept to the A/E/C industry. Autodesk’s Revit program allows for the coordination between many disciplines, and users of the system can collaborate to continue to make BIM better. In Autodesk User Group International’s publication, AUGIWorld, an article exploring new and collaborative uses for BIM through Revit, notes and thanks two of Hathaway Dinwiddie’s BIM managers. Check it out to learn more about BIM, strategies, and how Hathaway Dinwiddie utilizes effective in-house modeling!
Business Wire recently published a summary the North First project in Silicon Valley. North First Campus, a planned 1.8 million square foot development in San Jose, has been pre-certified for LEED Neighborhood Development by the U.S. Green Building Council. Developers Lowe Enterprises and Five Mile Capital Partners chose the site in San Jose to “[create] an environment at North First that fosters the new work dynamic.” The Pre-Certification designation recognizes a holistic approach to development that takes into account sustainability issues including smart growth, urbanism, walkability, and green building design. As one of only seven pre-certified developments in California, the North First project will offer an open campus that is integrated into the community. Hathaway Dinwiddie is very excited to be a part of the North First Campus project team as the general contractor.

50 years ago, HDCCo ranked number 70 on ENR’s first Top 400 list. This year, HDCCo is ranked number 84, and we are honored to be part of a small group of firms appearing on the FIRST Top 400 list and the FIFTIETH Top 400 list! Not many firms have been operating for as long as we have been, nor have they maintained such consistency!
In the accompanying article, HDCCo Vice President John Cowles is quoted: "We have noticed that many of our competitors are re-learning what we never forgot. Self-performing segments of work, such as concrete, site execution…is an important aspect of this industry. This helps develop field supervisory talent, such as superintendents, and provides keen insight into the construction process."
