"Robert Coutu knows more about Autodesk products than anyone I've ever met. With his guidance, many staff members were able to save time in their projects. Every design team that has worked with Robert welcomed him as part of the team because of his willingness to share his expertise, and because he is easy to work with. Robert is mature, disciplined, sensitive to others, and very serious about his work. I highly recommend Robert Coutu to help you with CAD training of your staff, and with the execution of all your CAD projects, whether it's with AutoCAD, Revit, 3DS Max, or some other computer design program.”"

Ryszard Szczypek

"Robert Coutu has played a vital role at TSKP over the last six months as we have moved forward to implement the use of BIM on most current projects. Bringing his many years as a Revit and AutoCAD Trainer, Rob led training sessions for staff, introduction them to Revit, and then continued to provide more advanced training along with a great deal of 'over-the-shoulder' guidance as they began working with it on real projects. His help and guidance has been invaluable to the firm, both individually and in dealing with the inevitable challenges of integrating Revit with office hardware and software. In addition, Rob assisted with development of a number of 3-D modeling efforts for both marketing and project presentation purposes, using a combination of Revit, 3-D Max, and other modeling software. Rob is very personable and adapted well to the culture of the office. He would be an asset to any firm. Please feel free to contact me if you have any other questions. Sincerely, T. Whitcomb Iglehart, AIA"

"As an architect at Tai Soo Kim Partners, it has been my pleasure to work with Rob on a number of architectural design projects using Revit as the documentation tool. Rob was instrumental in assuring the documentation of each and every project using Revit was flawless and in keeping with all our unique office standards. His knowledge of Revit and teaching techniques surpassed all my expectations and allowed myself and other colleagues to become more confident in using the software on our own. I would recommend Robert and feel that he would be an excellent candidate for any position requiring the use of Revit as an architectural, engineering or construction tool.
