For Immediate Release- Cape Fear Region-October 16, 2018-- Wilker Design Co. was established by a local architect with over a decade of experience providing 3D renderings for visionaries and professionals in the building industry. Using advanced software and modeling, they transform building plans, elevations, and even sketches into visuals that everyone can understand and connect with.

Founder and 3D artist Ben Wilker believes that in order for great places to begin, grow, and thrive, there must be vision.  "Communicating vision clearly in today's marketplace is almost impossible without compelling imagery.  Architectural visualization has become a vital part of many businesses, including for use in marketing, instilling confidence in clientele while making tough design decisions, or gaining public support for a new project." 

Based out of Southport, NC, Wilker Design Co. is able to provide professional and timely renderings for clients across the country.  Below is an example of work that was recently completed for a disaster relief shelter.  As part of an Activate AIA NC project, this was a collaborative effort between AIA Wilmington, USGBC Cape Fear Working Group, and Legacy Architectural Salvage of Wilmington.  The project's goal was to design and build a safe, sustainable shelter that could easily be put together by two people after losing their home in a hurricane.  This rendering communicated the design intent and helped secure  material donations before building commenced.

SCORE Cape Fear Region mentor, John McCloskey, feels that "Ben is an experienced professional with a passion for his work. I am confident that he will build a large and satisfied client base."

April Scott, Executive Director of Brunswick Community College Small Business Center states that "Ben is a great example of professionalism with proven knowledge and talent in architectural design."
