About Us

Eric Payne and Nic Cole

What makes us Different

To re-shape and industry takes a diverse team with a new approach, one that aggressively focuses on improvement of the status quo. Payne Cole is built on these fundamentals and each team member exudes these strengths. We have assembled the top-level talent in all aspects of our process. Architects. Engineers. Design and Media services. Each part of our internal team.

The Process

Our process starts with the visionary talent of the Architect but quickly accelerates the visual delivery of these plans, far earlier than ever seen before. Utilizing a near proprietary process that allows these photograph level images of early concepts to be actual and to scale. Instead of industry accepted “artist concepts” that typically come far later in the journey. Our visual media delivered approach is industry changing with talent infused into the process never seen in the Architecture sector.
