2D/3D Bathroom Design

 

If you are involved in bathroom design and need to communicate your plans and visuals with your clients, then Visual Building is the essential tool for you. You can quickly draw a 2D plan of a single room and then equip it with bathroom equipment to ensure that your clients (and yourself) understand your plans in 3D.

 

VisualBuildingBasicSmall

For bathroom designers we recommend the Visual Building Basic version to start with. However, which ever version you purchase, you can always upgrade, without any loss of investment.

We also recommend you purchase the 3D Bathroom Collection 1 accessory catalogue.

Visual Building is the ideal tool for Occupational Therapists to create mobility plans for their clients. Where elderly clients may not understand a 2D plan, they will be more familiar with a 3D visualisation.

Occupational Therapists

 

Visual Building is the fast and easy way to demonstrate to your clients how their new kitchen or bathrom will look and function.

 

Using clear 2D plams and 3D visualisations you can work closely with your clients to ensure your design is tailored to their unique mobility requirements. From the initial survey you can create plans and visualisations that allow both you and your client to be confident you both have the same understanding. Many people can not visualise a 2D plan, and automatically creating that plan as 3D visual will help them understand.

 

 

Software for Architects

 

Software for Architects! As an architect you will appreciate Visual Building’s ability to quickly put together your initial design concepts. You can quickly prepare a 2D and 3D design suitable for presentation to your clients.

Visual Building for Builders

Both small and large building contractors can benefit from Visual Building. Use Visual Building to create plans that can be presented both as 2D and 3D, that allow you to communicate with your clients. Many people do not fully understand 2D plans, but now you can present that
VisualBuildingPremiumSmallsame 2D plan as a 3D visualisation. 

 

Builders need a software tool that is capable of planning, creating site plans, planning applications, landscaping
and much more and so we recommend either the Visual Building Professional or Premium versions.  However, which ever version you purchase, you can always upgrade, without any loss of investment. You could even start with the Visual Building Lite version and as you require more features, simply upgrade to the next version.Using the Visual Building Training Course and the Visual Building Tutorial Videos, you will quickly be able to use this software.

    Drawing Services

    Despite the ease and low cost to produce floor plans with Visual Building some agents still prefer that this function be performed by someone else. This is not a problem as we can offer you our ability to use our own software to offer you a very competitive service. We can supply your plans in any drawing format and you can still use Visual Building to update your plans without referring back to us.

     

    We can give you a quote on 1 floor plan or a hundred floor plans. The price is determined mainly by the information you can supply, the floor area and the urgency.

    We can also respond  quickly due to our ability to import architectural drawings and create simplified understandable plans. We are able to maintain your agency style so that all your plans look the same, using different wall fills and coloured overlays if required. If architectural plans are not available in electronic form we can scan in paper drawings and use as a template, or create drawings from a hand sketch. The essence of our residential plan service is speed and simplicity.

     

     

    Marketing Advantage+

     We also have the ability to supply you with  a version of our software that will allow your clients to use the supplied floor plan. Your client / customer can then load the plan into their copy of the software. This is an additional marketing option not part of the standard drawing design service.
