HOW WE DOCUMENT THE DETAILS MATTER

Why are we as a service-industry still using old, archaic means & methods of communicating construction details? We’ve found the best way to create, manage, and share architectural documentation. With DOT-Architecture, we create 3D models and sheets that are accurate and easy to understand. DOT-Architecture makes it simple to keep your multi-family housing project’s documentation up to date, so you can always be confident in our work. What other firms see as a liability in knowledge-sharing, we see as a missed opportunity that we take ultimate advantage of  – because we know there is power in information & sharing. 

STEP ONE:

We design primarily in 3D this gives us the unique ability to document in three dimensions as well, seeing the three-dimensional drawing next to the two-dimensional drawing adds depth and allows you to understand the depth of the elements and in turn better understand the geometry of the building.

 
 
 

STEP TWo:

As you can see in this example, the roofline has two different conditions, one that overhangs and one that is flush in the two-dimensional drawing. They look the same and could lead to costly mistakes and change orders. Simply adding the three-dimensional model to the drawings can alleviate these expensive mistakes.

 
 

STEP THREE:

We also take advantage of the ability to create 3 dimensional floor plans which can help solve similar problems as the elevations adding context and detail too the interior spaces

 
 

STEP FOUR:

The advanced modeling techniques we utilize in our process allow us to generate three-dimensional details as well these give new meaning to a line work that may have been missed in a two dimensional drawing and adds depth to allow you to fully understand the condition.
