Birmingham 3D Future City Model

Birmingham 3D Model Future City

In March Stephen Mealings, Senior Director at our Birmingham office, posted a sneak preview of our new Birmingham 3D Future City model which generated a lot of interest.

Since then we have completed our fully interactive and dimensionally accurate model of Birmingham city centre.

We are now taking it one step further by adding consented and proposed developments within the city.

Birmingham 3D Future City

This will create a unique view of the future of the city once these new developments are built.

Our model is accurate to 10cm and we regularly update it from laser surveys to achieve even greater accuracy. We are able to use the model to rapidly assess the impact of new developments.

With the inclusion of consented but unbuilt schemes, we are able to show the Birmingham 3D Future City and use this to assess the cumulative impact of development.

Our modelling tool utilises AccuCities Plan.City 3D model of Birmingham and they have just published an article about our use of this product on their own website as a case study.

Birmingham 3D Future City Model Applications

Using the latest specialist software and 3D laser scan data, we create 3D models and undertake cutting edge analysis for Rights of light and Daylight & Sunlight.

We deliver solutions to affected schemes, maximizing the development potential of sites and providing certainty to enable development to progress.

Assessing the Rights of Light and Daylight & Sunlight available to a proposed building is key to delivering high-quality developments in increasingly dense urban areas throughout the UK. See our recent article on why this matters to affected neighbouring properties.
