The project portfolio is the backbone of AEC firms

Leave a comment

Very few architects and engineers promote their business without an online portfolio where they can showcase their projects.

The project portfolio is the backbone of most AEC firm websites. In fact, a lot of firms virtually tell their whole history through their portfolio – showing off past projects so prospects know what you have done. Whilst at the same time, building the potential client’s confidence that the firm has the sufficient expertise and experience to solve their problem.

They say a picture paints a thousand words. If you don’t have available images of your completed projects then you are not using your best assets for winning new clients. Poor photos of a good job make it a bad job in the eyes of your website visitors. And worse still is having no photos at all.

Digital Asset Management systems are great places to store your project images (that often cost you a small fortune to source) and allows you to search for that right image, not just for the website so they are available, with drag and drop ease, for proposals and presentations.
