Our Process_ BIM

Customarily, building information modeling and rendering services are an additional cost; we’ve worked to integrate them into our natural design process.  This allows us to prototype design options early on, while offering exciting promotional imagery. Behind the scenes, modeling helps to ensure that the design is cohesive and sensible.  Hate revision fees?  We take projects completely to bidding in BIM software, meaning that we can explore solar implications, energy simulations, etcetera, before locking in the final details.
