Lauren Graham is an Account Consultant serving the Southern California Region with a focus on facility maintenance. She was part of the first graduating class of Build the Next (BTN), a nine-month intensive education program seeking to take individuals with no previous sales experience and build them into well-rounded industry professionals. Before starting the program in March 2020, Lauren was working in public relations and local production studios as a copywriter and brand marketing campaign and content creator. During her time in the BTN program, Lauren was inspired to create short, educational videos to connect with clients in a more tech-forward and visually appealing way, leading to the creation of, Let’s Talk Buildings which launched in May 2021.
Within the AEC industry, Big Rooms are an on-site co-location space that physically brings together designers, builders, facility operators, and more to create a collaborative environment. The Big Room is designed to bring all of Southland’s businesses together, including Southland Engineering, Southland Energy, and Envise, within an integrated workspace.
