Understanding concepts

Design visualization tools help project owners and stakeholders envision the possibilities for their facilities and communities. It creates graphic images from words and ideas—making concepts and options clearer. Through design visualization, clients and stakeholders can picture the building they’ll work in, the bridge they’ll drive over, the neighborhood their kids will play in, and the campus that becomes a home away from home. Changes to design can be seen and understood immediately. When the project stakeholders can envision the end result of the design work, community excitement and project support builds. With our in-house team of filmmakers, animators, 3D modelers, and application engineers, we can produce a range of products, from cinematic photorealistic films and building renderings, to data-driven facility fly-throughs. These tools help clients, stakeholders, and others involved in the process to quickly gain an understanding of the design direction, upon which solid solutions can be built.
