Working With Us
We take every step to ensure that working with us is simple, effective and to your satisfaction. If you wish to retain our services, the process is easy:
Contact & Contract
Use the form below to send us your contact information, or simply give us a call at (866-391-6299). We’ll then request that you send us the plans for the intended view. We can work with a variety of files, including 2D and 3D CAD files (DWG format/export), hand-drawn drafts, photographs or even field measurements for local clients. From this, we can offer a ballpark estimate or suggest the best views for the project.
Additionally, we offer a detailed scope of work which details the terms and conditions of our service agreement. We also offer service-master agreements for blanket work arrangements. Please note that for new clients, a 50% retainer is required before scheduling.
Modeling & Drafting
Next, we’ll import your plans and model files and begin organizing your assets in preparation for production. We assemble the wireframe of the scene and take draft snapshots. The first views of your project will be presented as untextured or White Model views to verify the location of the view. Following your approval, we make and apply finishes to the wireframe.
Files are then presented using our on-line delivery system. These may be shared with any member of your team.
Revisions & Completion
First drafts will include all the information you’ve supplied for the view. Any FF&E (furniture, fixtures or equipment) can be added to the scene. If your furniture or equipment manufacturer maintains on-line resources of 3D geometry for their products, we can adapt these for use in your scenes. You then have the opportunity to comment on the first draft, and your comments are incorporated into the scenes. We repeat these steps as often as necessary to your satisfaction.
Final adjustments are then made and the production files are rendered to full resolution. We also can provide finish variations, if required. Remember, we only charge for time to produce the variation, not for a new rendering from scratch.
Finally, we work with your output service providers to ensure any printing of our files is completed successfully. These typically range from four-color printing to job signs, banners and even billboards.
What if the project needs revisions years later?
Do you charge a fee for estimates?
What do you need to create an estimate?
Can you quote me a price without seeing my plans?
How are estimates calculated?
How do the fees work when I need to show my client more than one option?
What do you need to start on my job?
May I see progress images?
- View verification: This verifies that we have the cameras placed where you want them
- Draft: all lighting and finishes in place
- Proof: all of your redlined revisions are executed
- Production: the final high-resolution file
Oftentimes, we find that once clients see their drafts they want to make revisions as they focus on their choices. Revisions within reason are included in all of our estimates.
What if my plans are not complete?
When we’re done, what do I receive?
What if I need prints or mounted boards?
How big can my renderings be?
How do you bill for the job?
- For project-based agreements, we bill at the conclusion of the project or monthly if the project timeline is longer than 30 days.
- For service-master agreements, we bill on a recurring monthly schedule based on your accounting cycle.
For new clients, 50% of the estimated fee is required for work to begin and 50% is required before you receive files without electronic watermarking. After the first project, we can employ #1 or #2 above.
