We model all our projects in 3D using ArchiCAD, which allows us to create beautiful visualisations of proposals.
For planning applications this can be invaluable, enabling officers, neighbours and clients to see accurate representations.
Simple block models can be used to explore the impact of different options and differing rendering techniques give opportunities to see proposed buildings in their settings. In addition your project can be sent to your phone as a 3D walkthrough, or you can see 'fly-through' videos of a proposal.
