When a custom floor plan is made using pen and paper, the design process can be time-consuming and inaccurate, and it fails to produce a visual that clients, builders, and architects can interact with. Thankfully, the days of using pen and paper to make custom home designs are all but gone.
Today, architects like ours at John Falvella Construction Services use CAAD technology, instead. And it makes all the difference.
The Benefits of CAAD
CAAD stands for “computer-aided architectural design,” and refers to a type of software that allows you to plan, design, and simulate custom floor plans and 3D home models.
At John Falvella Construction Services, we use CAAD technology to generate quick, precise models and plans that are changeable at a moment’s notice. The use of this software allows for more productive collaboration between the client, the architect, and the builders.
Most CAAD software comes pre-loaded with knowledge of construction and materials. That means it can be used in conjunction with BIM (building information management) programs to give a custom home builder the correct list of materials to begin work.
3D Models and Virtual Tours
Using CAAD programs to make floor plans allows us to create 3D models of any home we’re working on. The result is that we can play around with the layout and details of a custom home design without starting over. These real-time updates make collaborating and experimenting fun and easy.
Additionally, once you’ve finished adding all of the design elements, you can take a virtual tour of the home that will give you a pretty accurate idea of how the whole space will look and feel. This detailed virtual tour enables you to give your final stamp of approval with total confidence.
All in all, the use of CAAD technology is a necessary, ideal advancement for the architecture industry. This is why the architect at John Falvella Construction Services always uses CAAD technology to map out the design and floor plan for your custom home. We want to be 100% certain you’re happy with every element of the design before we begin work.
