Building Information Modeling (BIM) technology enables integrated design development based on 3D Model that contains all constructive information. The customer can navigate the 3D environment and have the best perception of his business. Thus, AGA uses the most advanced architecture programs to achieve the best results.
The project is developed in a 3D environment from its conception to the executive project, allowing creative freedom, easy understanding for the client and technical consistency of constructive information. Graphical representations using realistic diagrams and images are another AGA’s differential quality.
