When coming up with the concept and design of your new self-build project, you may have a clear idea of what it is you want, but still be unsure how it’s going to translate into actual physical form. Or perhaps you have some key features you’d like included, but can’t visualise how they will work together. In these cases, we find that 3D Modelling is an absolutely marvellous tool.

Think of it like taking those images in your brain, and being able to set them down on paper. You get a much better idea of the form your build will take. This is why 3D modelling is such a revolutionary tool, and so many of our clients find it immensely helpful.

Not only does your design become more vivid, but you can take a 3D tour of the house or extension, imaging the shapes, flow and structure of your build. It means that remodelling or corrections can be easily achieved. Your design is perfected in quicker time, and it actually speeds up the project from start to finish.

We recently worked alongside a client who came to us with a specific brief to replace an existing barn with a clear span roof design, complete with an uninterrupted floor space. Scott provided two 3D designs, a tie beam design and a hammer beam truss design. The client was thoroughly impressed with the 3D modelling, saying this helped them come to a final decision.

Look out for the next blog to see how this 3D Modelling translated into an actual physical building!
