Z+W has started investigating various rendering software packages, including Artlantis, to improve the quality of our presentation drawings. Currently in the works are several retail proposals for the airport market. We are working to take our Sketch-Up and ArchiCAD models straight into the rendering software and are having good results. This process will allow us to save our clients time and money on their presentation graphics.
After five years of planning, permitting, and loads of patience on the part of the congregation of the Orthodox Congregational Church of Lanesville, major progress has been made on their new parish hall. Thanks to the people at Bensonwood, Z&W’s first timber frame is well under way. The project makes use of insulated panels for the roof and walls providing a tight and energy efficient structure.
After working with Bensonwood on this timber frame, we will certainly be looking for opportunities to do another project with them soon. The timber frame gave us an opportunity to express the structure in a beautiful way, while still being on budget and schedule.
