Efficient Workflows and Improved Project Delivery

Collaborating with TPM has been an absolute pleasure for Starr Design. The partnership began with a focus on optimizing Autodesk/Revit and PDF workflows for enhanced efficiency and productivity.

TPM’s introduction of Bluebeam, coupled with outstanding training, now makes it an indispensable part of Starr Design’s project delivery process from start to finish.

Standardization of Revit and BIM Practices

TPM’s expertise extended beyond software workflows. They assisted Starr Design in refining their Revit standards and played an active role in meticulously documenting all their BIM practices and procedures.

Starr Design achieved streamlined operations and improved collaboration by clearly communicating and adopting these standards across the firm.

Optimized Printing Solutions

Impressed by TPM’s consulting services, Starr Design entrusted all their printing needs to them. TPM’s upgrade of their in-house color printing capabilities and large format plotting delivered a cost-effective package.

This arrangement allowed Starr Design to print either in-house or through TPM at the same cost to their clients, offering unmatched flexibility without cost concerns.

The seamless integration of TPM’s expertise not only enhanced Starr Design’s efficiency and productivity but also elevated the overall quality of their projects.

As a result, Starr Design continued to inspire and leave a lasting impact through their innovative designs.
