IT Support for Architects
Innovation has been one of the drivers of fresh thinking over the years in architecture. Whether that’s building materials and construction methods or changing demographics, the right IT support for architect practices has a key role to play in a sector that was an early adopter of CAD (Computer-Aided Design) and BIM (Building Information Modelling.
As Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR), 3D and 4D printing, the Internet of Things, Artificial Intelligence (AI), machine learning and robotics are shaping and changing how and where we live and work, so the architectural sector is responding by embracing these innovations.
Already, for example, these technologies are being used to power-up the way architects prepare, pitch and present their work to clients, planners and the public, where an immersive virtual reality experience (rather than just drawings, illustrations, prototypes or models) come together to deliver lifelike experiences.
Similarly, big data and digital transformation are empowering data-driven design and enabling architects to make better-informed decisions to improve project delivery and profitability.
All the more reason then to choose your managed IT service partner in London with great care.
How important is IT Support for Architects
We know how important IT is for architects, it follows then that keeping your technology optimised and performing efficiently and cost effectively is equally as important. And even when stripped down to the essentials, such as the high-spec tablets and monitors you use in the studio or on site, platforms like Revit, SketchUp, Vectorworks and ArchiCAD and the increasing number of mobile applications available, your choice of managed IT support service in London is equally as important as the hardware or software you opt for.
Here at totality services our managed IT support solutions for architects in London can deliver clear benefits for your business in terms of performance, productivity, availability, security, compliance and total confidence in your technology.

Having worked with many high-profile London architectural practices in this demanding sector over the years since our formation in 2008, we’re uniquely positioned to deliver all the managed IT support services you require, all tailored to your needs, budgets and operations, today and tomorrow.
