GUS DROSOS

Senior Project Architect, HOK

Technical Principal, HOK

Bailey has extensive experience in all aspects of building design and detailing, from facades to feature elements, materiality to systems integration, conceptualization to construction administration. His strong design capabilities enable him to not only bring intelligent and creative solutions to each project, but also develop the initial concept through planning, documentation, and construction with an emphasis on materiality, exterior-envelope design, lighting design, building-systems integration, and exterior and interior project detailing.

Drosos has over 25 years’ experience overseeing quality control and the technical aspects of large-scale sports and entertainment projects. His knowledge and hands-on experience working with project construction teams and owner groups gives him invaluable perspective on the technical aspects of project delivery. He has coordinated the design and construction of complex sports facilities with construction budgets ranging from $5 million to over $1.5 billion.

SPEAKERS TODD AULT Associate Vice President, Gould Evans

An expert in Building Information Modeling (BIM), Ault works on large commercial developments as well as interpreting the nuances of residential municipal code and building science. The result is a deep understanding of the issues involved in designing buildings and developing property. In his 12 years with Gould Evans, Ault has designed some of the firm’s largest projects including: Cerner’s new Innovations Campus in Kansas City, Missouri; Cerner’s Continuous Campus in Kansas City, Kansas; and NOAA’s Laboratory in La Jolla, California.
