Making Smart Cities a Reality

The competing demands of the human requirement for a decent quality of life against the need for more urban development creates tension in urban environments. With the UN predicting that 68% of the world’s population will live in cities by 2050, this problem will become more challenging.

Decisions made on how and what to build, and how to design the best possible city are complex, challenging, and the consequences of getting it wrong are long lasting and expensive. VU.CITY helps people to make better decisions on urban planning through accurate, impartial data in a 3D Digital Twin.

The VU.CITY platform covers the whole of London and the centres of other major UK and international cities. Adopted by over 80% of London’s boroughs, VU.CITY is helping simplify the process of planning and providing a working blueprint for the rest of the world.

All growing cities need to be sustainable, enjoyable places to live and work. Our platform focuses on efficiency, it’s tried and tested, and it works. By providing this tool for developers, architects, planners and the public sector to make the best possible decisions, we’ll be able to find a way towards creating the best possible cities for all.

Revolutionary design and masterplanning tool - import your 3D model into VU.CITY, view developments from ALL angles, including views out and take screen shots.

Save time and money through the planning process - assess scale, massing, footprint, AOD in minutes and reduce the number of AVRs by using VU.CITY to decide on key viewpoints.
