the Alliance

Born out of years of successful collaborations, Vision Alliance NY takes advantage of a connected group of like-minded firms and individuals that cover the spectrum of branding and architecture in order to form a powerful consultancy that is greater than our individual selves.

 

We pack a punch equal to the big New York City firms since many of us used to be the “stars” while working for them.  However, unlike those big firms, we represent the most distilled essence of talent and efficiency.

 JB&D

JB&D provides short and long-term contract services to architecture firms in New York and New Jersey.

 

Our management has almost 20 years consulting experience in NY. We currently have 50+ highly skilled cadd based architects whose skill range in expertise includes cadd mark ups through project architect and manager positions.

 

JB&D was formed as an alternative Cadd service bureau.  We specialize in 2D and 3D drafting and work only with architect trained cadd consultants.  It has been our experience that the few cadd services available rely more on computer skills exclusively rather than the additional skills required to work effectively with other architects.

 

Over the years we have worked with just about every major firm in NY and the tri-state area as well as several others across the country.

 

Our standard method of operation is to provide skilled consultants on site to assist from one day to whatever the duration of your needs.  We have also taken jobs out of house and completed them on site at our offices in NYC.
