3D rendering has made its way in the last several years into many engineering, architectural, and construction firms. And, that’s not without good reason! 3D renderings provide benefits for firms and their clients alike. Those 3D renderings can be done via AutoCAD, Revit, Lumion, Sketch Up, and many other design software. Because of their life-like image nature, 3D renderings are also knowns as photo-real renderings. However 3D photo renderings of buildings and office spaces is not the limit when it comes to visualization of a space. Owners and end users can now see their new office space via virtual video walk-throughs, digital tours, panoramic renderings, renovation renderings and more recently light and shadow renderings. Each of these methods of visualizing a space allows clients to focus on a specific aspect of the design, making it much easier to finalize its direction and move to construction earlier.
Here are four benefits when choosing a design-build contractor offering you 3D renderings as part of your construction project:
Improve project communication
3D renderings help clients better understand how their conceptual design for their commercial space will ultimately appear as a final product. It is easier for many clients to comprehend their needs by seeing an interactive visualization depicting how their space will look, rather than just a simple drawing or sketch. This is especially helpful if any changes need to be made before the construction process begins.
Utilizing 3D modeling saves construction and architectural firms time and resources, and ultimately adds buffer to the construction budget. Costly mistakes can be avoided using 3D renderings, and the office space can virtually be put to test before the construction project has even begun.
Improve building features
Many clients learn best when physically seeing something. Having an accurate 3D rendering of the office space helps clients decide on features and concepts. Even in the earliest stages of the process, clients can now see their new office space and its completed look, and can make changes with regards to design and features of the space.
Accurate Data for Coordination
Modeling any space design in 3D immediately opens the doors to BIM (Building Information Modeling) which is used to finalize coordination between construction trades. On top of assisting clients and designers in making decisions on space layout, construction trades can coordinate their work with one another early on to diminish any potential obstacles in the future
