“We’re bringing in architects and our clients and different consultants in one room and we’re viewing the drawing, the architecture and the massing through VU.CITY.”

"I am delighted that we’ve secured a digital platform to help citizens visualize the ambitious plans we, and developers, have for Bristol. These exciting tools make for better quality engagement and a richer conversation about our vision for a more sustainable, inclusive city."

"Being able to extrude massing instead of waiting for the architect to send the model of a proposed development means we can start work on it ourselves."

"The practice is taking full advantage of the VU.CITY model platform to great effect. As a design tool VU.CITY is exceptional, the extent to which we can now substantiate our architectural proposals with supporting data and compelling verified visuals is a game changer. The team are going beyond the clear benefits the software provides to test both urban and townscape strategies on major projects to explore environmental and microclimate impacts.”

"The students were greatly helped by exploring their conceptual designs in their urban context by using VU.CITY’s accurate and immersive city model of London. It gives them greater understanding of their chosen sites and enhances their ability to portray their architectural ideas visually."

“We have found VU.CITY to be invaluable in our assessment of one of our major city centre regeneration schemes. We were able to 'walk the development' and assess the impact of the proposals in a way which would not have been possible with 2D drawings, illustrative material and more orthodox 3D modelling. VU.CITY has also allowed us to assess the scheme much more quickly and feedback to the applicant earlier.”
