3D-animation-construction.jpgCurious about what architectural animation can do for your construction business? The future looks bright for firms that embrace 3D animation.

For starters, clients already prefer the power of 3D to help make their decisions.

Recent data from the National Association of Realtors shows the majority of real estate buyers use 3D animation tools to tour potential properties, learn about the community, and gauge as many details as possible.

For firms themselves, 3D tools not only provide customer satisfaction, but they allow for more operational efficiency, according to a recent industry trends report. And the experts at Construction Dive recently reported on the growing buzz around 3D technology, virtual reality, and building information modeling (BIM).

Animation is quickly becoming a mandatory asset to compete in today’s real estate construction market. That’s why we’re counting down the top 5 reasons why your firm needs 3D visualization services now.

1. Get Property Permits Quicker

If you want to build a property from scratch, you have to get a government permit, but getting that permit requires jumping through a few hoops first.

For example, if you want a permit to build in Philadelphia, you would have to go through the city’s Office of Licenses and Inspections and meet all their checklist requirements.

However, many contractors fail to get permits because they don’t have professional visuals that adequately describe the building project.

You need to convince local officials that your project meets all mandatory requirements and beyond. Architectural animation can help you do that by presenting a professional, realistic 3D look at the upcoming project and its timeline.

2. Make Less Mistakes

There’s nothing worse than noticing a glaring error after the fact, so this is where 3D animation services are a serious lifesaver.

3D animation services catch and fix mistakes before the building process begins. Therefore, you can worry less about scaling, creating accurate building plans, and getting the interior design just right.

3. Keep Clients In The Loop

Clients aren’t big fans of surprises.

When you’re investing a lot of money into a project, you want to know what’s happening every step of the way.

Not only can you use 3D animation services to present finished plans and models, you can also use animation to keep your clients in-the-know as their property develops.

Animation is also a great way to nail down what your client wants. Visualization services like storyboarding help get those creative juices flowing through a step-by-step process so you both land on the same page.

4. Use 3D Animations In Your Marketing Campaigns

Never let an awesome animation go to waste, as professional 3D animations make fantastic marketing material after the job is done.

As a competitive firm, we don’t have to tell you how important it is to keep your professional portfolio updated with new media. Architectural animations perfectly complement high-resolution real estate photos, and you can easily incorporate them in the following marketing strategies:

  • Instagram marketing
  • YouTube marketing
  • Commercials
  • Interactive kiosks
  • Animation stills for billboards
  • Print advertising

5. Enhance Online Communication

As the industry continues to go global, so does your need to adapt to the latest in communication technology. Today's video conferencing software lets you conduct meetings wherever and with whoever, regardless of their location.

With the help of an animation service, you can easily present in-depth architectural 3D animations to keep international clients in the loop and investors excited about your upcoming projects.

Final Thoughts

The real estate industry has been taking advantage of animation services to get buyers excited for what’s possible. Now it’s time for your firm to get up to speed with the latest in construction animation.
