Belgium based software architect. Literally.
Pater Asteerstraat 87
BE07 1947 2754
Architect graduate, passionate about software development and hardware tinkering.
Kenny made his first SketchUp extension in 2011 as part of his master’s thesis research for which he developed a simple design support tool in SketchUp to calculate energy efficiency of dwellings in early design phases. (Design guidance for low-energy dwellings in early design phases: … and Naar een ‘architect’-vriendelijke evaluatie van EPB en zomercomfort. )
Right after graduating, in 2012, Kenny started working for a Belgian software development company where he had the opportunity to further explore his passion: creating software automations for the 3D modelling tools he had been a user of while studying architecture. It took some days and nights, but soon Kenny crafted custom SketchUp extensions, Revit addins, full stack web apps with webGL consuming graph databases, etc… for companies in Europe and the USA.
In 2017, Kenny started working as a freelance BIM software developer and got involved in projects ranging from online GIS-BIM integrations, Autocad AI automations, full-stack web apps with Autodesk Forge integrations and, of course, SketchUp, Revit, Autocad and Archicad addons.
Kenny founded KG-dev in 2019 with the goal to build upon the BIM knowledge he had been gathering throughout the years and to help companies in any sector benefit from combining a spatial 3D context with information management and business intelligence.
