As a smaller firm, Realize is able to provide all of our clients with a personal service often forgotten in larger practices.

While the practice is set in the small seaside idyll of Stanwell Park, kilometres from the stress of the big smoke, Realize provide efficient services to clients as far flung from the Illawarra as Sydney, Nowra, Newcastle and beyond, including rural and regional NSW, and even interstate to Victoria, SA and Qld.

The practice takes advantage of all IT possibilities offered by the internet (and its cloud) and as we are Apple fans we are currently using 3.5 Ghz Intel Core i7 iMacs and Mac Mini servers.

All projects are efficiently managed via the specialised architectural project management package ArchiOffice which tracks project time and cost while also recording document issue and managing project personnel performance. 

For CAD we always use the latest version - currently v17 -  of ArchiCad, the BIM (Building Information Modelling) system from Graphisoft, which includes the ‘BIMx’ Hyper-modelling tool enabling 3D building visualisation on desktop and mobile devices, high quality documentation and 4D and 5D opportunities in tendering and construction planning. Incorporating ‘Ecodesigner’, we are also able to efficiently perform energy analysis on our project building models to ensure the best ‘Green’ outcome. 

Most importantly for you, our client, we are able to provide realistic 3D views as the design develops, and even ‘walk you through’ your ESD virtual project.

Our clients also benefit from the indirect involvement of all members of staff as we engage in peer criticism at important intervals in projects and encourage vigourous discussion on design theory and its application.

We believe that our success is based on the comfortable work environment enjoyed by all at the practice, and by our motto of personalized attention, innovation in design and steady quality in all aspects of our design and documentation.
