Simply stated, we’re not trying to be project design architects. We’re an extension of you and your staff, and are here to help you realize your vision, for your project. Rest assured, we will act, perform and produce deliverables in a way that is 100% “in lock-step” with your expectations.
There’s a certain art to delivering a presentation, and the reality is, most architects simply aren’t born “natural presenters.” There’s nothing wrong with that! In fact, it’s common! But what’s also true about most architects, is that with a little training, they can become quite effective presenters. But not all presentation training is equal. There are dozens (if not hundreds!) of professional presentation training companies across the country, but the secret to successful presentation training in the architecture industry is to have professional presentation training that’s being provided by actual A/E/C industry professionals. We know how to coach design professionals, because we are design and construction professionals. You won’t find any other presentation training company, anywhere, whose leadership is comprised of architects, and certified general and commercial contractors. Our A/E/C industry experience and expertise makes us uniquely qualified to provide the presentation training that your design professionals need to be successful. Because we’re design and construction professionals ourselves, when we interact with your team members, and when we’re working with them to craft their message – whatever that message might be – we’re going to immediately be “on the same page.” We won’t be wasting valuable time trying to understand the nuances of the architecture industry. In fact, because most of us “came from the design studio or construction trailer,” chances are, we’re going to be able to do more than just coach-up presentation-specific best practices like mannerisms, delivery style, eye contact, voice control, confidence, etc., equally as important, we’re going to weigh-in on the technical aspects of your team’s message, offering critical suggestions on what may be best, technically, to ensure the successful delivery of the message by your team, and most importantly, to ensure that the message being delivered is well-received by their audience.
We understand the challenges that are inherent with developing presentations in the architecture industry. You’re working frantically, often up until the last minute, on your design concept. That leaves you with little or no time to work on the presentation itself, let alone rehearse it! Let our Preswerx team of presentation coaches, graphic designers, and A/E/C industry-trained 3D artists work for you! We can work as an extension of your in-house team and resources, or with some early and close collaboration, you can “send us away” to work somewhat independently. Although every presentation is different, you can rest assured that we’re going to approach the development of your presentation in as collaborative a way as possible. Our presentation development team is going to work with you and your team to create a presentation that’ll be unlike anything you’ve ever seen before.
Because our leadership’s comprised of architects and designers, we’ve got an eye for creating quality still-renderings in a short amount of time, at the right price. We’ve always felt that good renderings are just often out-of-reach of most architects because time and resource constraints don’t always allow for their production. Moreover, it’s fairly easy to achieve a level of quality that’s the equivalent of 60-90% of the vision you have in your head, but to get that last 10% – to achieve a near-perfect representation of your vision – that takes a little something extra!
Allow our team of A/E/C trained 3D environmental artists and visualization-focused architects to work as a direct extension of your design team. We’re not here to design buildings – we’re here as a resource for you, to add the modeling and rendering horsepower you need, when you need it. We get it, the timeframe to produce these visualizations is extremely tight. You and your team are so busy working on the design of your project, you have very little, if no time, to bring that design to life in the form of a fully visualized animation. Resources and bandwidth constraints can also be a limiting factor in the creation of these visualizations. Preswerx brings pragmatic, cost-competitive solutions to the table.
Ever since the inception of computers, architects have been dreaming of the day when they, their teams, and their clients could experience the design of their projects in a virtual space – in a life-like, value-creating, and pragmatic way. Too often, seeing these projects, in their entirety on a computer screen, has meant sitting over-the-shoulder of a computer-savvy technician, peering at a computer screen, either in a 2D or 3D CAD environment, with no real way to actually visualize the project as it would exists in the real world. Gone are those days! Let Preswerx take your project – your design – and let us bring it to life in a way that you can really see, without having to be a computer genius. We’re going to allow you to virtually tour your project, on-screen, and it’s going to look awesome, and be highly informative – both to you, and your client!
Nothing can quite replace the fully immersive experience that is virtual reality. If you’re an architect, and you’ve got a client that either can’t fully grasp the vision for the design of their project, or a client that would greatly benefit from a seamless, wholly contained, trouble-free virtual reality experience, the Preswerx team can deliver the most life-like, lag- and motion sickness-free experience. We’re exceptional at creating best-in-class virtual reality experiences because more than half of our technical staff heralds from the video game design industry. What do you get when you take the best architects and “arch-viz” professionals, and pair them with the most elite video game designers – you get Preswerx turnkey virtual reality products and services.
Let Preswerx leverage the experience and expertise of its A/E/C leadership team, the creativity and 3D environmental design expertise of its in-house digital artists, and the computing horsepower of its cloud-based server infrastructure to create and push-out an augmented reality experience, of the design of your project, to any number of augmented reality devices. See the design of your project like you’ve never seen it before, by placing a digital model of it right there on the table in front of you – where you, your associates, and your client can all see and share the same augmented reality experience, all in real-time.
Sure, Preswerx loves helping its architect clients win that next big project, but what about the long-term? How can you leverage that big win and roll-it-forward toward further growth and prosperity? Too often architects rest on what’s worked for them for decades, without any consideration to the changes in the competitive landscape that are taking place around them all the time. The architecture industry has evolved, and the companies that thrive in it have evolved as well; but all too often we’ve observed the brands of many of these architecture firms falling further and further behind current trends. Equally as important, few architects have taken a thoughtful, comprehensive approach to brand identify and management, and are losing out on the exponential return on investment that can be realized by having a concerted plan for elevating and maintaining the company’s brand. Let Preswerx brand-specialist work with your firm to turn what’s become stale and outdated, into something fresh and exciting – a brand image that will propel and solidify your firm as a leader in the architecture industry.
Our team of industry-leading Autodesk-trained professionals are exceptionally well-versed in Autodesk Revit. If you’re an architect or design professional that needs our team to facilitate the coordination of the various design models, from the various design disciplines, into a single, fully federated model, or maybe you need firm-wide Autodesk product implementation training and oversight – we’ve got the Autodesk expertise you need.
Although more and more architecture firms have either begun or fully migrated into an Autodesk Revit or equivalent work environment, SketchUp continues to be a go-to platform for conceptual-level modeling by more than 70% of architects across the country. Most small- to medium-sized firms that maximize their use of SketchUp don’t always have the bandwidth to fully flesh out their design ideas in 3D. Allow Preswerx and its team of SketchUp guru’s to act as an extension of your team, and help you realize the 3D vision for your design by bearing the responsibility of cleanly modeling your project in SketchUp.
Preswerx is often engaged early in the pursuit of a project – and we view our strategic involvement in the development of your proposal as just one key step in a larger plan to achieving a successful outcome. Let Preswerx take the same resources that we’d bring to bear in the development of your presentation and put them to work toward the creation of a winning proposal. Think about this – you’re likely to have us create one or more 3D models to depict the design of the project for your presentation… what if I told you we could create that same 3D model, but you’d also get the benefit of including its depiction in your proposal book?! Talk about “getting out of the gate strong” – we want your proposal to be so far ahead of your competition that it’s nearly impossible for them to catch-up in the presentation.
