Being an experienced leader, share your opinion on how adopting modern technologies like AI and ML impacts the architectural design solution space and how your firm adapts to the change.
Everyone knows that change is the only truth. Technology is changing and updating its features daily. Every updated technology brings some unique way of doing things. As per my experience, every day is new, and when I see something new and modern, I wonder how to deal with it or if it is just a change or a new beginning for us to do something different. Their impact was mind-blowing when we began working with them and adopting modern technologies.
We have rich experience in designing multiple projects. We also provide online consultancy services and other related services. New and modern technology makes us faster than before, and we adapted all the modern technologies to make our work shine.
Considering the current pandemic, what initial changes did you face, and how did you drive your firm to sustain operations while ensuring the safety of your employees at the same time?
We all are suffering from the tough situation in our lives. But we cannot sit and wait for a pandemic to end. We all need to do our respective work individually. Before the pandemic, there were no difficulties, but now, we must maintain and be very attentive to the protocols. Before the pandemic, we worked on different kinds of designs, but this pandemic situation taught us to be very careful about critical points as well. When designing a hospital, we must be ready for any emergency and create it in a way that will be useful and helpful in difficult situations.
We are very attentive to our employees because they are our pillars. And the safety of our employees is paramount as well. We had to work during the pandemic to properly hand over all the projects. So, our team is cautious and regularly checks the safety systems well. We follow every single thing per the norms and ensure that every employee also maintains them.
We must do our work and be careful about our employees’ safety. They can provide the best and most unique services if they are in a safe place. So, we all are connected, and our company is our second home.
What would be your advice and suggestion to budding entrepreneurs who aspire to venture into the Architectural Designing Solution space
Architecture is one of the difficult studies, we guess, because a student is expected to learn about the art along with civil, electrical, mechanical, and some essential management skill also you must have. To start a small venture in architecture, you must follow a few tips to help you avoid the pitfalls, embrace success, and have learning experiences.
Organize your ideas- Before starting any business, do some research. This will help you to understand the business in a better way. Understand the competition, what other similar designers do, their focus, location, etc. This will help you a lot in the future.
Understand what makes you unique from others. What services do you want to offer that should make you distinguish yourself from the rest? You must understand that competition is tough, and if you want to compete, you must be exceptional.
Devise your plan– After researching and organizing the ideas for your next venture, this is the time to make a plan or devise the ultimate one. If you need financial support, check with financial institutions like banks.
Establish the business location and set up the structure– When you start your plan, choose the location where you will begin your business. If the business you start is at your home, in a coworking space, or your private office, select the location first and set up the structure. Every small business owner will have the option of a sole proprietorship or do you want a partnership business. All this depends on you. In this current situation, architecture is a wonderful option for starting own venture.
How do you envision scaling Arcmax’s operations and offerings in the future?
If you think growth is the only thing to become a successful entrepreneur, then you are wrong; it’s all about scale. So, what does growth means? Growth means adding resources at the same rate as adding revenue. The scale is when you add the resources at an incremental rate and add the revenue at a rapid rate. You must have the master formula of adding clients while adding fewer resources. By this, you will have constant growth and also experience an increasing margin over the period.
Scaling the business means increasing the scope and the size of the company’s operations without tracking the substantial cost. Scalability also means the ability to perform under a tremendous workload. You also keep in mind that multiple new technologies are also there, which will help your company to grow and scale your business at a more affordable cost.
The fundamental thing I have experienced to date is that there is nothing like instant success. You cannot get success instantly. But obviously, you can boost the business growth for the startup people. When you launch the first business, your main goal is to establish the brand so that everyone knows about your brand, and thus it will start to grow. The sad part is that this will not just happen overnight. Scaling the growth process requires dedication and hard work.
