At CRD Design Build, we are committed to using the best available technology both inside the design center and out in the field to ensure our clients receive top-notch service in all phases of their project: from design to production!

ArchiCAD 20

CRD’s designers all use ArchiCAD 20 software to design clients’ projects. This industry-leading Building and Information Modeling (BIM) software allows for enhanced graphics, user interface and exporting models to BIMx for clients’ viewing. During client meetings, CRD customers have the added benefit of being able to view their project design plans in three dimensions along with our designers and CRD President and Founder, Denny Conner, on the design center’s large screen via a projection system.

Through ArchiCAD, CRD is able to offer clients BIMx, a tool to interactively view a 3D model their home project via their tablet or smartphone. Our clients absolutely love this feature because it allows them to virtually tour their future home and share their home remodeling details with friends and family members.
