I am pleased to share with our amazing network of partners, clients, and friends that Manny Shirley has been added to the BIM Designs, Inc. executive leadership team as our Operations Manager.

Manny joined BIM Designs, Inc. in July of 2020 as a Journeyperson Pipefitter Detailer out of U.A. Local Union No. 469 Phoenix, AZ. Manny has 8 years of field work experience and has been detailing for over 10 years on Retail, General, Gaming, Semiconductor, and Industrial projects. Over his 15+ years in the industry, he has also attained extensive experience working with Revit, Navisworks Manage, FabricationMEP, Recap, Laser Scanning (FARO, Leica) & HoloLens.

"Having been in design for many years I have seen many project teams and I know how critical it is to a project's success by having the right team together. Seeing that similar attitude and structure within the BDI leadership team is extremely exciting and I feel honored and grateful to be a part of the BDI family as well as the leadership team, where I believe we have that right team together." - Manny Shirley, Operations Manager, BIM Designs, Inc.

Manny’s previous roles as Foreman, General Foreman and Basebuild BIM Manager helps mold him into the Operations Manager he is today. Manny is an Arizona native and is served well from his years of experience in construction and BIM management at JB Henderson Construction Company, Inc. and BIM Designs, Inc. He earned his Associate's degree in Pipefitting/Pipefitter and Sprinkler Fitter from UA Local 469 Apprenticeship, where he created a foundation of knowledge.

He also has field experience performing tube bending, soldering, brazing, hot air welding, PVDF welding, gluing PVC, hanger installation, finishing, installing cast iron, equipment setting, heavy rigging, crane spotting, high purity gas installation, UG piping/plumbing, threading pipe, gas fitting and arc welding. 

Manny loves solving problems especially since he loved doing puzzles growing up so it’s a very rewarding and fulfilling job for him to get to do it for a living. He loves designing because it starts in your head as a thought or idea and that vision will impact someones life like a new home or hospital and that is very special. Manny loves helping others grow and helping them develop that vision and seeing their idea materialize before them. In his spare time Manny is very active, but also enjoys taking it easy and relaxing at home. He like working around the house and helping out on his in-law's ranch. He likes to fish, hike, camp and travel to the beach.

Welcome to our executive leadership team, Manny! - Mark Oden, CEO
