For the last 10 years, Arden Architectural Staircases has created dimensionally accurate concept designs as a way to visually communicate with its clientele. The firm is now providing a complimentary version of this service to designers who want 3D photo-realistic visualisations of their own designs.

Arden’s renderings aid designers not only in creating exciting client presentations, but also in forestalling potential manufacturing or installation issues. By utilizing exact dimensions and material specifications, Arden’s visualisations address detailing questions, and help ensure consistency with Australia’s building codes.

These technically authentic visualisations are grounded in Arden’s extensive practical experience with many dozens of physical staircase and balustrade installations. The firm is able to rapidly identify and solve real-world building and fabrication issues while maintaining the integrity of the original design.

Depending on the complexity of the rendering and technical support, designers are requested to specify Arden in the design documents as either the preferred or nominated supplier. Interested designers should contact Arden for specific details.
