The surface material you see in Archicad, is set in the OpenGL (Internal or Basic Engine) of the surface setting.
When you render you are probably using Cinerender?
You need to alter the Cinerender surface settings to be what you want - they use 2 completely different settings.

There is a button to 'Match' the OpenGL settings if you don't want to change them manually, but you may get ordinary results as it will just create a basic material match.
There are many advanced settings in Cinerender to make the surfaces look much better.
