Deck and Patio Company 3-D Animation Comforts Clients and Helps Envision Finished Design
The Deck and Patio Company came highly recommended to this client as a top notch design/build firm with a great reputation for creating breathtaking poolscapes and outdoor living area. After the initial meetings and design consultations, the client was very enthusiastic about the spectacular design and forward thinking idea the design staff at Deck and Patio had presented to them. The only issue was that the client was having a hard time envisioning what the finished product would look like.
Bill Renter, owner of the Deck and Patio Company, had his design team create a 3d digital animation of the entire project. This 3d animation allowed the client to view every aspect of the project from any angle they wanted. The client was absolutely ecstatic and was more excited than ever to get started on the project. “We have always taken pride in our commitment to technology” said Mr. Renter “This project afforded us the opportunity to truly test the limits of design and helped us to showcase our skills in 3d animation which ultimately gave the client a tremendous comfort level. By utilizing this technology we are able to display a very accurate approximation of what the finished product will look like. The 3d technology also allows us to make changes during the project which gives the client confidences that last minute changes will fit the overall look we are trying to achieve.”
This particular project had a large variety of details and was far from ordinary. The main feature in the new design was a striking geometric pool with a raised spa surrounded by a multi-level patio. The patio was built with Cambridge Ledgestone 3 pavers, a product that invokes thoughts of old time European plazas with classic looks and style that complements the lines of the geometric pool. A major part of the project was a custom designed pool house, complete with all the amenities of home. The pool house has a bathroom, changing room and living room with internet access, phone, flat screen TV and a spectacular view over looking the pool area.
Stepping out of the pool house, the client walks under a 25 foot wide shade pergola that shelters guests from the hot summer sun and is a main component to successful entertaining. Under the custom built shade pergola there is also a stunning bar area complete with a sink and all the components necessary to keep the client and their guests supplied with fresh beverages throughout the day and evening. The bar and raised spa are faced with matching cultured stone which ties the areas together from a design standpoint.
“Our carpentry crew and masons worked tirelessly on this project and the results are outstanding. From the 25 foot long microlam beam on the pergola to the smallest detail and door stop on the pool house, everything was built from scratch,” comments Renter. “To have this level of craftsmanship in a project like this is priceless.”
Starting with a design idea and working hand in hand with the client, The Deck and Patio Company was able to produce an end result that is absolutely breathtaking. The use of technology from AutoCad to 3D animation helped the client articulate their dreams and made those dreams come true on a computer and in reality. This reality was recognized by the Association of Pool and Spa Professionals (APSP) with a Gold Award for geometric pool design.
