COMMUNICATION



Using BIM to Inform Design Decisions

Communicating your design well to the client from early in the design phase can save you costly changes later. Our solutions and services provide options for illustrative and sketch rendering, light simulation and interactive walkthroughs. We offer easy-to-use and intuitive rendering tools that do not require expert knowledge – intended for use in the design process.

Your clients will truly understand your vision when you take them for a walk through a photo-rendering quality animation of your design. Or let them lead the tour using BIMx interactive navigation on the computer or on mobile devices. Photo-realistic renderings and free-hand-style sketch renderings further provide you more choice in how you communicate your design to your clients. For large-scale illustrations, ArchiCAD can take advantage of vectorial shading, which lets you produce images that are scalable without any loss of quality.

Visualizing Design and Detail

rglogSince 1998 Riyad Ghannam has been developing and growing his practice in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond. His philosophy is that great design is the result of pragmatic problem solving, creative thinking, and bold vision.

Specializing in residential, commercial, and bridge architecture with an emphasis on sustainable design rg-architecture strives to provide great design that is the result of pragmatic problem solving, creative thinking, and bold vision. The firm has worked with a range of clients from individual home owners to multi-unit developers with experience in all aspects of the design and construction process from small scope conceptual studies to full scope entitlements, construction documents and specifications. For Riyad and his staff they have a love for the work they do and want to leave a legacy of great buildings.

In this case study Riyad will discuss how his firm uses a combination of technology tools to build complex models, inform their design decisions, visualize complex details and support their goal to deliver high quality architecture.
