About Jeffrey Duclos

Jeffrey Duclos is a fifth year Architectural Engineering student at Penn State University, focusing on Construction Management. He will be graduating in May 2016 with an integrated Bachelors and Masters Degree of Architectural Engineering.

In addition to this, Jeffrey also studied abroad in China during the summer of 2014. While in China, he studied international construction practices, urban development, and building design analysis. Some of the locations visited were Beijing, Hong Kong, Macau, Guangzhou and Shanghai.

During the summer of 2013, he interned with the Office of Physical Plant (OPP) at Penn State in the Facilities Asset Management Systems (FAMS) Division. Here, he analyzed building HVAC systems, through building plans and building visitations, and cross-compared them against file structure and data in OPP's existing management systems. Once the analysis was complete, he formatted the system structure and data for integration into OPP's new Maximo system.

During the summer of 2015, he interned with Mascaro Construction on the Steidle Building Renewal Project at Penn State. Here he worked under the Project Engineer and the MEP Coordinator, assisting with BIM Coordination, monthly MEP progress updates, wall close-in checks and processing submittals & RFI's.

Jeffrey intends to become a full-time employee for a construction management firm. He would like to focus on working with BIM Coordination and Execution on projects.
