 How To Choose The Right Rendering Company for Your Next BIM Project

When you are getting ready to begin work on your next Building Information Modeling (BIM) project, there are many things that you need to take into consideration. One of the most important of these is the company that you will hire to be in charge of the rendering. Needless to say, this is an element of BIM that you can not allow inexperienced people to take care of. Having amateurs performing the rendering on your BIM project could result in disaster. Therefore, it is important that you are aware of the important things to look for when you are considering which rendering company to hire. Let's take a look at what you need to keep in mind:

Value And Impact

You should not simply hire the rendering company that charges the lowest price. If a company is charging a fee that is too low to be believed, there is usually a reason. As with most things in life, you get what you pay for. Try to find a company that provides work with a solid impact. There is nothing wrong with paying a little more if the company's work is exemplary. If a company is charging an amount that seems high, it is often because their work is so good that the company is in demand. A company like this is worth looking into.

Flexible Rendering Style And Deliverables

It is always preferable to hire a rendering company that has a flexible rendering style and deliverables. This give you a better chance of being satisfied with the results that the company gives you. It the company's rendering style is flexible, they will be better equipped to provide you with the work that you want. This will result in less revision requests from you, ensuring a BIM project that goes smoothly and is completed on schedule.  If you prefer something other than simple images a good company will be able to employ several different tools like animation, virtual reality, or a proprietary solution of their own to maximize impact.


This is a critical element because the rendering company you hire will inevitably be privy to sensitive data. This is something that is unavoidable in many cases. You should not go into any project blindly, simply crossing your fingers and hoping that your confidential information is protected. Instead, do a thorough vetting of the rendering company. See if they have had complaints filed against them and if possible, get the names and numbers of some of their previous clients to use as references. If a company you are looking into has had some issues in the past, move on to a different company. There is no reason to take unnecessary risks.
