American’s complete graphic and web services provides an opportunity for us to “show” a client the proposed changes to a project as opposed to “tell”. Black and white drawings can be confusing and not as aesthetically pleasing. Graphics can provide an understanding for everyone, not just engineers or contractors, and can be a part of all phases of a project. During the proposal phase, graphics can illustrate the proposed changes of the projects and help clearly define to the client what the engineer has in mind, providing different options, which can then create a rendering or movie to illustrate the changes. During the project phase, graphics such as websites can be used to inform the client, or the public, about the status of the project. A website can be utilized detailing the latest construction photos, closures or the next public meeting or hearing. Graphics can be used at public meetings to assist in public approval. With our in-house graphics team, we are able to respond to graphics requests immediately and provide quick turn-around times.
