Our clients appreciate that we look beyond the immediate requirements to arrive at flexible solutions that survive the changing needs of their business models. APD’s design team consistently delivers functional, aesthetically pleasing, cost-effective, and sustainable design solutions.
We offer a broad range of architecture and building design services in a variety of markets – including retail, restaurant, public infrastructure and facilities, recreation, education, healthcare, residential and multi-tenant. Our ability to consistently provide quality, cost effective architectural services to our clients and meeting aggressive schedules has made APD the choice of many national and regional clients.
Each Engineer has the ability to manage the scope with our clients, per municipality and agency requirements, as well as create the design and construction documents using our computer aided design platforms. This enables APD to provide a well-rounded employee that can jump in on any task as well as provide the necessary support from start to finish.
We incorporate flexible solutions that stand the test of time. Clients appreciate that we are responsible, but are excited when they realize we are often reducing project construction and operational costs through such thinking.
Our clients know they can come to us with their difficult projects, programs and issues, and APD will provide a practical, timely and cost-efficient solution. The proof is that the majority of our clients we were working with at the turn of the century are still relying upon APD today to keep them ahead of their competition.
Our team of MEP engineers and designers provide MEP services, including Fire Protection System design, Plumbing and Sprinkler and Fire Protection Systems.
Working closely with our clients throughout the US, our highly experienced engineers provide thoughtful design that offers cost-effective solutions on a variety of projects. Our MEP Team has provided design solutions to retail, restaurant, public infrastructure and facilities, religious facilities, recreation, education, healthcare, and residential projects.
Big or small, complex or relatively simple, APD has the skills you need to help you make the best structural decisions for your project. Our staff collaborates with our clients to come up with creative, cost-saving solutions that satisfy our client’s needs.
Structural engineering requirements are often unique to a particular project. APD’s engineers use their experience and fundamental engineering principals to develop solutions for each circumstance. Though certainly a focus, we understand that project goals are not solely financial. Others often include timelines, deadlines, and structural performance requirements. APD’s focus on communication and coordination assists us in identifying your unique goals so that we can meet them and try to exceed them.
Through the use of collaborative technologies such as Sharenology Projects, a proprietary software developed by APD, we can manage project activity and share project data to enhance communication with architects, engineers, and construction (AEC) project teams, from our clients to our consultants, to the contractor building the project. Owners, designers, consultants and contractors are enabled to interact and share project specific knowledge so that the team can take advantage of relevant information more efficiently.
From schematic design phase, through bidding and construction, Sharenology Projects allows AEC project teams to collaborate, securely share files, and manage the design and construction process. It allows for collaboration, document management, and electronic bidding using a web-based platform that can be securely accessed based on the user’s project role, from anywhere, with any Internet-connected device.
Conventional Surveying (land surveying) is the technique or profession of determining the terrestrial or three-dimensional positions of points and the distances and angles between them. Simply put, a drone survey is an aerial survey rather than a land survey. A survey drone can replace low-quality, outdated, or non-existent data with high-resolution orthomosaics and detailed 3D models. This can allow high-accuracy data to be produced quickly and easily, even in complex or difficult to access environments.
Conventional Land Surveying has been around for centuries and is well established; therefore, people often ask, “Why Drone Survey?” There are many instances where drone surveys can be beneficial to our clients. Some of them include:
The cutting-edge software used by APD supports both our field and office land survey work. The software we utilize assists us with geomatic computations, base mapping, volumes of earthwork, hydrology reports, as-built analysis, and construction layout. This software include:
Drone Software — Carlson Photo Capture, Carlson Precision 3D Topo Software, Drone Deploy Software (Processing), and Drone Deploy Software (Flight).
Survey Software — Spectra Survey Pro MAX data collection software, Spectra Geospatial Central, Carlson Survey Software, Carlson Hydrology, Global Mapper, and Pictometry.
