Turning a client’s vision into reality: 3D architecture software and BIM software tools
Turning a client’s vision into reality is one of our fundamental missions. Part of that process includes educating clients and helping to clearly define and understand the building space. In the architecture, engineering, and construction consultations with our clients we consider wide-ranging design options and help tehm achieve optimal impact. Not only do our architects need to understand our client’s vision, but the client also needs to recognise how a design will translate into reality.
Virtual reality walk-throughs enable designers and building owners to better understand how a space will look, function, and operate. A step above blueprints, animations, and fly-throughs, full-scale 3D visualization enables architects and clients to explore the layout in a 1:1 scale and make changes in real-time. ARENCOS’ virtual reality solutions help our clients and property investors:
- Conduct thorough and decisive design reviews
- Establish effective collaboration and decision-making
- Gain a competitive advantage with virtual modelling and 1:1 scale walk-through
- Reduce project costs and improve workflow even during periods of crisis
Work with a building’s mechanical, electrical, plumbing and engineering services to evaluate if additional support is needed to handle new technology requirements for your project
Translate BIM Designs to the Virtual World
At ARENCOS, our experts begin their designs within a BIM platform, such as Revit™. Although these software packages provide a base of understanding for our architects and property owners, the process still lacks the constructive discussion necessary for building owners to fully understand the proposed design and aesthetics. Using BIM software platforms combined with 3D programs our professionals can turn 3D models into an unparalleled VR experience.
``You can't get the full understanding of something by looking at two dimensional drawings. With the three-dimensional environment provided by ARENCOS, we walk inside our house and get an understanding of what it's going to be like. We experience a design, and then stop and say, I need more space, this sofa is in the wrong place.``
BRING CLIENTS INTO THE DESIGN CONVERSATION
Whether a project is simply a renovation project of an apartment in Chania, or an entirely new villa in Apokoronas, Akrotiri or Kissamos, integrating feedback from clients into a design challenges ARENCOS professionals on a daily basis. In many cases, BIM and 3D models don’t effectively depict a layout or a space’s functionality.
In this virtual world, our clients interact with a proposed layout intuitively, asking questions and recommending design changes. Team working, dialogue, knowledge sharing and critical thinking are among our competitive advantages; because clients are more likely to partner with organizations who utilize cutting-edge visualization technology that allows them to clearly realize their new-building vision.
