Leveraging Technology

Conveying ideas from one human to another is always a challenge even under the best of circumstances. Important information gets lost or miss-interrupted creating a disconnect and disappointment when expectation are not on the same page. Making sure our Clients understand the design to same level we do is a core value Wiles+Architects is dedicated to from the early conception stages to the final occupancy of  our projects. We work hard to learn new software and are constantly investigating new innovative ways to make our presentations as accurate as possible so that the Client has a clear and crisp understanding of the project’s aesthetic value.

Wiles Architects is technologically savvy and has been drawing in 3D form since 2000 and office-wide implementation of REVIT software in 2008 for 3D, 4D, 5D and 6D.

This intense attention to detail has proven to minimize change orders, provide accurate budget analysis and allow our firm to maintain tight project schedules.

LOWER COSTS

33%

reduction in the initial cost of construction & the whole life cost of built assets

FASTER DELIVERY

50%

reduction in overall time, from inception to completion, for new build & refurbished assets

LOWER EMISSIONS

50%

reduction in greenhouse gas emissions in the built environment

IMPROVEMENT IN EXPORTS

50%

reduction in the trade gap between total exports & total imports for construction products & materials

Building Information Modeling (B.I.M.) Software is an effective tool to convey design ideas, implement scheduling, and develop cost estimating to building end-users, creating an environment that allows the Client to take a proactive approach to the design.  The end product is a building that invokes learning on multiple levels which encourages school pride and ownership by both the administrators and students.
