KTGY Group Inc., an Irvine-based architecture firm, earlier this week debuted its new Mobile Design Studio and a Site Survey App for the iPad, which are expected to save planning time by accurately and quickly presenting designs to clients.
The Mobile Design Studio is shipped before a design team’s arrival to a site and includes everything needed to work onsite, including laptops, specialized design software and iPads. The Site Survey App includes the survey questions and documentation required to report the conditions of a site. It is also able to map a site from photos taken on the iPad.
"With fees being extremely competitive, we knew that we had to provide a better level of service than our national and local competition, and our new technology has become something that our national clients can't live without," said KTGY Associate Principal Craig T. Chinn.
By using the Mobile Design Studio, KTGY employees are able to work anywhere and easily view and share work in 3D, Chinn said. This ease of access allows designers to come up with several different designs onsite.
The new technologies also help contractors by accurately calculating necessary materials.
"KTGY is revolutionizing the way we work by providing more accurate base drawings, which is not typical in this industry,” said John Easter, vice president of Culp Construction. “Plus, the clients can view the space in the 3D model while actually at the space and create any revisions before we start building, which speeds up the construction process.”
