ome days you need to move mountains & others you need to be a Swiss army pocket knife. I have always been an impatient person, but fortunately so are my clients. We’re a breed in an incredibly competitive field that need to move and adapt quickly, balancing design, marketing and construction on projects that may last years and have more twists than an Agatha Christie novel. If I had to pause a project every time something new came up then all my work would suffer, stalling everything else down the line, including hard release dates. Pushing through barriers, or knowing how to

A recently returned player to the property development game is showing what may be the new way to conceive projects. Property development has changed significantly, especially in the last 15 years, with the formula of pre-construction offerings, high-energy sales and big marketing budgets. Buyers clamour to get a piece of property well before any real foundations are laid, suiting both developers and their bankers perfectly, in fact property developers that don’t proceed this way are often squeezed out of the market by rising holding costs and a finance market that gets more demanding and protective of its cash. In effect the

I wont admit how many years ago it was when Archiform 3D started doing websites because it will make me feel old. But I will admit that Flash was new and fancy, HTML5 was not even thought of, Google was not around and Facebook wasn’t even a twinkle in Zuckerberg’s eye. I was considered a “genius” because I could write code and embed things like video and virtual tours into a website before YouTube existed. We all know that the Internet went ballistic and the technology around it changed almost daily. I had a great guy working for me that shared my

While the covers are not off this new Jimmy Buffett styled resort, you can still get a sneak peak via some cool technology. ST THOMAS, Virgin Islands, U.S. - May 11, 2015  -- Behind the laid-back theme of island tunes and lazy afternoons are a team of perfectionists that are working around the clock to finish the St Thomas Margaritaville Vacation Club, a partnership between Wyndham St Thomas Development LLC and Jimmy Buffett. Formerly the Renaissance Grand Beach Palace, Wyndham has been engaged in a more than $100M renovation and modernisation program that reinvents the resort as a 262 unit Margaritaville themed resort. While guests

It’s not often you find a property developer who willingly cuts density from plans, but the Ascot Grand Bahama project just got a serious pruning by its lead, Steve Bell. Ascot has been in the works for over a year now but has only become public knowledge last September. It is set upon a “barefoot elegance” theme with a twist of health and well-being. Features like edible gardens, an orchard and beachside yoga–meditation cabanas set Ascot outside of typical condominium developments. The most noticeable change is the reduced number of towers that stretch across the more than 1000 feet of prime oceanfront beach. They

We came up with something that is cool while messing with the Ascot project, deciding to make a hard cover book that can be delivered to people, ordered online, etc.. It’s a real coffee table style publication that can be printed on demand and ordered by anyone. We wanted to find a way to get more traditional with how Archiform 3D work is presented – old fashioned paper. It works on the idea that while we have lots of wonderful videos, virtual tours and renderings, buyers are starting to miss the high quality feel of a book. At the same time developers and

Announced today is “Ascot, Grand Bahama,” a new development that has been quietly in the works for the past year. Described as “Barefoot Elegance,” Ascot is set to create a sought after luxury development that caters to people seeking a finer lifestyle that excludes casinos, crowds and traffic jams, yet is extensively serviced, perfectly accessible and with modern infrastructure. Approximately 300 resort-residences are spread over 18 acres within walking distance to Port Lucaya and includes beachfront, marina and “labyrinth garden” homes. The development has a philosophy of a wholesome lifestyle, understated elegance and lasting quality. It’s not just that it is

rchiform 3D is pleased to announce our solution for interactive panoramic tours, and as with everything we do, it's 100% included within our regular service. It works perfectly with any kind of interior scene and can even be applied to exteriors. The technology itself is not new, in fact we have been using it internally for the last 20 years, but the delivery was always difficult, especially with the rapid change in technology and hardware. But one such change, HTML5, along with the improved performance of mobile devices, has brought everything to a stage of "ready for prime time". Today we can

Get an advance viewing and see the 128 year old Casa Madrona hotel-mansion in Sausalito’s high-tech renovation and presidential suite addition using the latest 3D stereoscopic tools. Casa Madrona Alexandra Suite living room Constructed in 1885 as a lavish residence for the William Barrett family of San Francisco, this grand mansion slipped slowly into decay until 1910 when John Gallagher, who had the vision to convert the mansion into a hotel, bought it. 67 years later the building was damaged and facing the threat of demolition when John Mays acquired the property and rebuilt it. Today, after changing hands, Casa Madrona is a
