Take a drive around San Antonio, Texas and you’re sure to see some amazing architecture. From iconic Spanish Colonial Missions to turn-of-the-century gothic revival skyscrapers, San Antonio enjoys a rich architectural heritage that continues to this day. One of the firms carrying that tradition forward is RVK Architecture.
Founded in 1971, RVK is one of San Antonio’s leading architecture firms. With a broad expertise that includes schools, corporate headquarters, and municipal buildings, RVK is responsible for many of the city’s most recognizable buildings, including the Vistana, the NuStar Energy Corporate Headquarters, and the Julia Yates Semmes Branch Library.
Staffed by more than 55 architects, project managers, and administrative personnel, RVK is a consistent contender for San Antonio’s largest projects—and when it’s time to put their designs on paper, RVK trusts Knight Office Solutions to supply and support their imaging technology. Why? Because when a bid is on the line, the difference between a signed contract and a missed opportunity often comes down to the details.
“Knight understands the critical importance of quality in our printed deliverables,” says Charles Dayton, RVK Principal and Business Manager. “Whether we’re producing proposals, schematics or routine paperwork, I trust Knight to connect us with a best-in-class solution at an incredible value.”
What powers the paper behind some of South Texas’ most iconic buildings? Let’s take a look:
- Production Equipment: Like many large firms, RVK relies on a production printer for high volume documents, such as proposals and presentation materials. “Bringing our bulk printing in house has reduced our document production costs and afforded us greater agility in making changes on the fly,” Dayton notes.
- Large Format Printers: RVK employs two large format printers, a Lanier wide format unit for printing monochrome blueprints and line drawings, and an Epson color plotter for posters, marketing materials, and foamboard presentation pieces.
- Office Printers: Of course, it’s not all high-profile posters and presentations. RVK relies on a fleet of desktop printers and MFPs for standard document production. Optimized to promote socially distanced interoffice traffic, RVK’s printers combine high reliability and a low cost of ownership.
Tailored to the firm’s specific requirements, RVK’s fleet of best-in-class imaging equipment helps the firm put its best foot forward at every stage in the project lifecycle. But quality is only part of the picture. “More than anything, I appreciate that I can rely on Knight’s service – they’re going to stand behind their word, and when we have a problem, I know they’ll take care of it,” Dayton says.
