4 Essential Steps to Order High-Quality Architectural Renderings

How to order high-quality architectural renderings for your projectMost interior designers would be able to answer ‘what’ and ‘why’ questions related to high-quality architectural renderings. When it gets down to the ‘how’ part, they seem to be clueless. At Render Atelier 3D Rendering company, we regularly meet clients who seem to be totally undecided on how to get started with the 3D interior designing process. We thought we should spell out the steps for ordering high-quality architectural renderings. This way you know how to order 3D renderings for your upcoming project. So, here we go.   A high-quality architectural rendering project needs widely vary and 3D rendering studios in Qatar and elsewhere usually do not have a fixed price chart for 3D visualization jobs. However, if you come across a 3D rendering studio that comes with a full pricing list, be a little chary. Just like no two high-quality architectural renderings can be similar, price quotes for two different projects can also not be similar. Your project is unique, not just for its intended use, but also by its cultural and physical environment. If you ask us, we would first request a proper documentation on your project to analyze a number of factors and then put across an accurate quote. Tip: Save your time and money by communicating your requirements upfront.
  • Have you prepared your files yet?

Most 3D architectural rendering studios in Qatar would request a set of plans and drawings from you to create a perfect 3D visualization for you. You may create a folder which would include your interior design and architectural drawings in PDF and sent it over to your renderer. Well, you may use some other format, but the goal is to make the documentation readily available for the renderer. In many cases, we quote prices considering a set of drawings. However, the initial quote may get revision as you add more flesh to the bones. You may just inform your structural designer upfront to anticipate possible changes and keep sending information even after requesting a quote and even within the 3D interior design rendering process. We appreciate reference images, Google maps with coordinates, presentations and even napkin sketches. Tip: The more information you send to your renderer, the better.
  • Mention your deadline

Always, always mention your deadline, even if you are not in a hurry. The best practice is to set your deadlines 2-3 earlier than the actual date. This makes room for possible further adjustments and improvements. Tip: Choose a renderer that provides scalable solutions, sends project reports periodically and keeps you in the loop.
  • Signing a non-disclosure is essential

Get your renderer sign a non-disclosure as this is considered a standard practice worldwide across the service sector. We insist our clients sign NDAs that prevent us from sharing client documentation with third parties during or after the 3D architectural rendering. Get a legal expert to draft the NDA if possible. Tip: Make sure you read the entire agreement before approaching a renderer. Lastly, you should always keep in mind that the high-quality architectural rendering project you are going to contract out would be used to tell a story (3D Storytelling) – a story of your interior design. Hence, it should follow a storyline. If you have something in mind which you believe would tell the story in the most desirable way, don’t hesitate to share your ideas with your renderer. Review each and every proposal carefully before you choose to work with a particular studio, or renderer.
