For convenience store managers, envisioning a C-Store remodel, upgrade, or complete construction can be somewhat challenging. Elevations and 2D floor plans can be difficult to interpret. The construction management industry is turning to realistic 3D rendered video to help projects come to life for customers.
“We have seen the benefits of using 3D drawings first-hand and it’s something that we want to offer to our customers,” states Westmor Industries, Project Manager, Mark Kragenbring. Westmor designers use a 3D visualization program that integrates with their drafting software to produce lifelike video renderings of what a customer’s future C-Store will look like. This gives the customer a creative and accessible representation of the designer’s work. The program even includes Google Maps, allowing customers to see how their store will look within the surrounding area.
Westmor’s Construction Management Team is in the process of building a library of renderings that will serve as virtual tours for customers to view. Customers will be able to decide on a general layout based on past projects before providing additional details to project managers about the needs of their specific site. As final designs are agreed upon, Westmor designers will provide customers with a complete visualization of the C-Store including the outside layout and an interior tour.
No other company in the industry offers both fuel transfer equipment and construction management service. This unique position gives Westmor’s Construction Management Team industry-specific insight, granting them the capability to specialize in C-Store construction. When customers chose Westmor, they don’t need to hire any additional architecture firms or general contractors. Westmor executes all project tasks from initial consultation and design to final installation. With one source, customers save an average of 25%-35% on the cost of the entire project.
