  • Infiniti showroom renovations stay on track.

    ALPHARETTA, GEORGIA, USA — Dr. Rensis Likert, a scientist who studied organizational structure and the principles of leadership and management in the 1940s, said that, “the greater the loyalty towards the group, the greater is the motivation among the members to achieve the goals of the group and the greater the probability that the group will achieve its goals.” Why do we quote this obscure principle? Because to Axiom Conversion Services, this principle holds very true.

    Falynn Schmidt (inset) and Pieper O’Brien Herr are renovating Infiniti car showrooms throughout the USA.

    For the last 17 months, Falynn Schmidt and Pieper O’Brien Herr Architects have used Axiom Conversion Services for the conversion of old, hand-drawn paper plans and TIFF (Tagged Image File Format) files to AutoCAD files for the Infiniti Automotive Showroom Renovation project. The project calls for the renovation of all the Infiniti showrooms across the United States. Back in October 2002, MicroStation Today spoke to Falynn about the project. So, we decided to call Falynn up and catch up with her. This is what she said:

    Axiom Conversion Services allows us to have accurate AutoCAD drawing files in a timely and inexpensive manner. Because the showroom renovation project is an ongoing project, we have had to fine-tune our conversion, drawing and dissemination requirements, but Axiom has been flexible and reliable to our needs as they have changed. Often I call Karl with an immediate deadline [Editor’s note: Karl Toth is Axiom’s Conversion Delivery Specialist]. He has always worked with us so that we have the drawings back quickly and within the deadline.

    “The time it would take for us to manually do what Axiom does for us through raster-to-vector conversion would make the showroom project impossible. Without Axiom, the project costs would greatly increase due to time spent working on conversions in-house.

    “Our relationship with Axiom has been enjoyable and productive. Axiom Conversion Services has always been reliable and timely and the drawings have been accurate and to all our specifications. We have told other project teams in our office to call Axiom Conversion Services when they need conversion work done. When we have drawings that need conversion, Axiom is the only company we call.”
