Custom home projects are enormously complex and difficult. Owners often have a tough time visualizing the spaces, hindering them from fully participating in discussions; architects cannot possibly anticipate every needed detail or foresee every conflict between the various components and assemblies; designers struggle to present their vision in a clear manner to their clients; builders are always starved for the information they need to properly construct the project and maintain the construction schedule.
Enter ClearPlan - through the use of 3D modeling combined with our decades of in-the-field experience, we are solving these issues, providing clarity of vision and understanding to all the stakeholders in a custom home project. We are the bridge between the design team and builder.
For owners, we provide an effective means to mitigate cost and scheduling overruns resulting from plan errors and omissions or absent detailing as well as visualization services that can have you “standing in the room” long before it is built.
For builders, we provide accurate and detailed modeling of structural, MEPS, drainage, and other components and assemblies to guide your field crew in the construction of the project. During the modeling process, we discover the same issues you will encounter during construction, allowing solutions to be developed long before these are discovered in the field. We also offer on-going consulting to ensure a smooth running and successful project.
For architects , we provided unparalleled plan cross-check and validation ("constructability"), clash and issue detection, as well as assembly details - the "how" to your "what".
For interior designers , with three-dimensional renderings, walk throughs and virtual reality, we provided immersive experiences for your clients ensuring common vision and understanding.
We call this process "virtual construction". Using modern modeling software guided by over thirty years' experience on-site actually constructing homes, we analyze the project's plans and details, creating the model just as it would be built. We create a dimensionally accurate prototype of the home right down to every construction detail, including the inevitable issues that would be encountered during the course of construction. Discovering these issues before construction saves money, time and maintains project momentum.
In the future, every custom home will start with a virtual construction model. ClearPlan is providing the path to that future now.
