As project managers, our goal is clear communication. The rendering, provided by your architectural firm, can be a valuable tool to establish clear communication. A rendering depicts a space much more clearly than design documents. From the rendering, you can understand the scale of the space, the mood, the sizing, placement, etc. The visual tool provides specific information about the space that is being designed.
To create a rendering, an architecture firm typically procures a third-party consultant who specializes in rendering. Rendering firms will provide pricing and timelines so that costs and expectations are understood before the rendering is produced.
Not only is a rendering a valuable tool to build consensus among project stakeholders, but it can also be a very helpful tool when trying to fundraise for a project. Providing a clear image of what the finished product will help to build excitement. Donors can understand the mission and values of the project, as well as the expected final product of their investment.
Renderings are a valuable tool but can be a high-cost point of stress for owners. Learn more about the pricing of professional rendering firms.
