We believe in independence. We give you our unbiased and straight-up advice. We don’t sell you hardware or software for profit. We don’t expect you to sign a lock-in contract with a big retainer.
We design, setup and optimise Apple Mac networks and servers, provide strategic advice on IT investment and setup office procedures. We implement backup and maintenance strategies, develop BIM manuals which feed into quality management systems.
We provide ArchiCAD and Vectorworks template setup and customisation (using our mACT framework), and GDL programming, undertake BIM file audits, and develop customised BIM management plans and procedures.
We visit your office and provide individual and group ArchiCAD and Vectorworks training. As architects and designers ourselves, our training is based on real-world experience working with the software in architectural offices on real projects.
With our background in architecture, we take pride in our ability to communicate with you and your team without a translator.
We know how a design office works and what it needs to function efficiently.
We believe in providing you with a closely integrated service. We watch, we listen, and we work with you to establish a strategy specifically tailored to the needs of your company.
Our goal is to be the Design Technology Managers you wish you had years ago.
who we are.
macinteract is a Sydney-based consultancy providing Apple-based BIM and IT services to creative professionals. macinteract is comprised of real people. We are a group of architects and designers with extensive international professional experience using ArchiCAD alongside several professional rendering and other creative software packages. Our clients range from sole operators to companies with over 130 staff.
We’ve worked with and taught at various universities, and worked for leading architectural and interior design firms. We know what a deadline tastes like, have felt the dread of that spinning wheel and have first-hand experience of the ad-hoc nature of BIM and IT in growing firms.
We are Daniel, Alex, Arne and Tim. One of us will be your point of contact, the rest of us are there for support.
No automated replies, no lodging of tickets, just us.
We believe in the strength of the team. Our ability to cooperate internally and with our clients is key to our own professional fulfilment and success as a business.
We constantly research and evaluate new Architecture Engineering and Construction (AEC) products, and when something holds up to our high standards we propose it for inclusion in our clients’ systems.
We believe in direct, eye-to-eye communication. If the answer can be summarised in one word then, no matter who you are, we will not write an essay in reply.
