The Outside Perspective
of using QARC System
Previous to receiving the QARC files and template we were using a template which had evolved from older projects and a lot of our time was spent setting up the each project again. Notes would need to be bought in from other projects, view templates redone, sheets set up, and the list goes on and on.
Since we have been working on the QARC template we have saved a lot of time in the setting up phase of the project. We can quickly send out a set of drawings that has the floor plans elevation and 3D views that look great with very little drafting work required.
The QARC also forms a check list for us, enabling us to produce drawings to a higher standard. Keeping the builders and certifiers happy.
Setting up a template has always been on my list of things to do. But with the pressures and time limitations of running a design studio it has just never happened. The time I would need to set up this level of documentation would take too long and cost me A LOT more than what I have paid for the QARC system.
When I came across the QARC template I thought all my blessings had come at once. A template that had been put together by building designers for building designers… need I say more!
