BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the manager of ByggAkademiet, a company that seeks to train and raise the skills of craftsmen. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire IBF Designs?

Based on feedback from hundreds of craftsmen, we have developed a digital solution that will help practitioners learn proper construction techniques. The solution features both text instructions and 3D drawings. We relied on IBF Design to create those 3D drawings to show how things should be built according to laws and regulations.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to include these images as a part of our digital solution to supplement our instructions. That way, practitioners could learn visually how to do something rather than just reading a lot of text.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

For two years, we had tried many different designers before becoming fortunate enough to get in touch with IBF Design. We started by sending over some simple 2D sketches to see if they could render them properly in 3D. Once we realized that they could handle our project, we negotiated a fixed price for each 3D model.

Describe the project in detail.

Over the past year, we collaborated with IBF Designs on various projects. This project, in particular, involved rendering our 2D drawings into 3D models for our educational construction solution. They delivered all drawings on time and with minimal adjustments.

What was the team composition?

We worked with Ivan (Founder & Designer, IBF Designs) who was our single point of contact. He was incredibly easy to deal with and showed great professionalism when addressing our questions. 
 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

We are currently in the process of launching the solution and have pre-sold it to several major players and suppliers in the construction industry. So far, we’ve gotten a lot of praise for how we’ve communicated our lessons using both text and 3D drawings.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Their efficiency was impeccable, and we felt comfortable collaborating with them. Everyone in the industry should be this easy to work with. Had we found them before, we would have saved so much time and money.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The way they communicated showed great professional competence and indicated that they understood what we wanted.

Are there any areas for improvement?

No, they couldn’t have handled this project better. We are so pleased with their 3D drawings.
