During the past 10 years we have met with thousands of people planning or in the process of designing their own house at the Homebuilding & Renovation / BuildIt exhibitions to discuss their problems and requirements. These shows were valuable to us, as we learned exactly what the individual house designer requires from a software tool. Visual Building addresses the main points identified by most of these projects:
  • Inexpensive
  • Easy to learn
  • Adaptable to all types of builds
  • Create 2D plans suitable for planning regulation
  • Create supporting documentation for Building Regulations
  • Use as an aid to project manage the self build project
  • Communication tool with architects and builders
  • Design and manage electrical services
  • Interior Design for floor and wall coverings
  • Interior design for fixtures and fittings
  • Interior design for furniture
  • Landscaping
Visual Building is a solution for house designers at every stage of a project.
The multi view layout is fully integrated, and unlike in many competitive products, changing the details in any view within the layout automatically updates all other views.
