A&E TECHNOLOGIES

Nearly every professional architecture and engineering firm utilizes the power of BIM (Business Information Modeling) these days. MartinRiley was the first firm in our region to commit to apply BIM technology to 100% of our projects and we continue to push the limits of its capabilities. What many firms cannot offer though, are the advanced technologies that tie into BIM and/or support all of our expert disciplines.

 

Traditional methods of data collection require days or weeks on-site and can easily result in missed and inaccurate information. At MartinRiley, we use some of the latest technology available to collect our field data. Utilizing laser scanners, drones and infrared, we are able to gather detailed, highly accurate, as-built conditions quickly. This means less disruption and downtime to the client.

 

We also put an emphasis on 3D renderings for our clients, knowing that effective communication of the end result is directly tied to client satisfaction, and fostering the long-term partnerships that are so important to us. We’ve taken this a step further, and have invested in our own 3D printer to print architectural models. And we can tell you from first hand experience, high quality renderings and 3D models for clients who need to rally community support or cast a vision to a wide audience are undoubtedly, game changers.

 

Services:

  • Business Information Modeling (BIM)

  • Drone camera capture

  • Infrared thermal scans

  • 3D laser scanning

  • 3D model printing

  • 3D rendering
