What is InVision? If you haven’t partnered with HTG Architects before, this might be a new concept to you. You see, InVision is a process we’ve created, and it’s something unique to the banking industry. If you’re looking for a detailed explanation of what’s included with InVision, we’ve covered that information here.
For today’s purposes, you can think of InVision as a collaborative process that brings our experience and expertise together with our client’s vision to form the foundation of a financial architecture project.
Put another way, InVision is our way of collaborating with our clients to uncover, organize, and prioritize the many components, trends and space needs that will go into their project.
What Does It Take?
As an architecture firm with decades of experience on bank and credit union projects, we know all too well that there are many pieces to the puzzle that are involved in a financial architecture project. InVision enables us to define those puzzle pieces and determine how they all fit together. This ensures nothing gets missed, skipped, or overlooked. As our client, all you need to bring with you are the things you already know about your community, goals, vision, and aspirations.
But why does it take eight hours?
Believe me, you are not the first person to ask or think that question. We understand how valuable eight hours of your time is. Frankly, I know exactly how valuable eight hours of my time is. We would never take that much time unless it was completely necessary. InVision is an eight-hour process, and it’s worth every minute. And to be completely honest, even clients who are resistant to book out a full day end up having a pretty great time learning about the latest trends that could be incorporated into their facility.
What About Results?
InVision brings the collective expertise of HTG Architects together with the knowledge our clients hold about their branch, community, goals, vision, and everything else they want to see embodied within their final product.
At the end of the InVision phase we take all the information gathered and use it to develop a complete Scope of Project. The scope details everything from the conceptual design, schedule, and budget. Typically this is enough information for clients to garner buy-in from staff and get board approval to move into the architectural and engineering phase.
