JLB Design also offers design services specifically for small businesses, lease management companies and property owners. The architect can help take your project from the initial planning phase (logistics, scheduling & budgeting) all the way through the construction phase. We offer design with the use of BIM Technology (See Below) to help you get a clear sense of what your finished project will look like. We can help coordinate with furniture & equipment vendors, contractors, landlords and leasing managers to make sure that everything goes smoothly with your project. This will save you time, money, aggravation and ensure that you get your business set up and running as quickly as possible.
BIM Modeling & Schematic Visualization
Sometimes you just can't make decisions without first seeing what your project will look like once it is completed. 2D drawings are sufficient for the majority of projects but they don't offer a true sense of space, scale, light, texture and materiality. Sometimes, this prevents you from moving forward with a project, you are fearful of making a mistake. This indecision creates stagnation which quickly turns to a broken morale and an overwhelming stress that only makes matters worse. JLB Design can help you take that all important next step forward.
Through the use of an industry changing 3-Dimensional modeling software called Chief Architect, JLB Design can help you to visualize your completed project by creating a 3-Dimensional model. This model will provide you with a clear understanding of all facets of your finished project before a single nail or screw is driven. Any decisions you regret making can easily be erased and redrawn with a new decision, in most cases right before your eyes. Chief Architect utilizes BIM (Building Information Modeling) Technology that allows the architect to model both the interior and the exterior of your project. The model helps to make important choices that effect the finished design, including massing, scale, aesthetic feel and even textures and materials. With this visualization comes enthusiasm and the kickstart needed to boost morale and keep you moving toward that all important ribbon cutting.
