Karen Davis Burton founded Building Industry Resources 17 years ago to provide architectural design and technical support services to firms who needed design development and construction document production assistance, with SmithGroupJJR as one of her first clients. She has been on the project teams for corporate facilities, sports and entertainment, healthcare, and multi-family residential project types.

Along her career path, Karen found her love for the business side of the AEC industry. Most recently, she was business development and marketing manager for one of Detroit’s longest operating and most prolific architecture firms.

Additionally, she has presented workshops on social media for AEC firms and organizations and has taught architecture, construction, interior design and CAD at the Community College level.
