Architects, planners, developers and local authorities are turning to Manchester's most accurate digital twin and embracing the revolution in design and planning.
VU.CITY's 3D model of Manchester is the largest, most accurate and includes coverage of Salford, Trafford, Stockport and Rochdale.
Manchester continues to lead the way in the north of England in all aspects of the built environment, whether it's the ever-growing skyline providing the highest level of urban living or the re-invention and regeneration of the boroughs of Greater Manchester.
Manchester is firmly advocating the net zero green agenda in all its planning with the belt around the city centre providing more and more green space for its '15 minute neighbourhood' concept. VU.CITY enables all stakeholders involved to collaborate and make this vision a reality.
Architects, planners, developers and local authorities are turning to the UK’s most accurate digital twin and embracing the digital revolution in planning: VU.CITY Manchester includes coverage of Rochdale, Salford, Trafford and Stockport.
Architects, such as SimpsonHaugh, have realised that VU.CITY Manchester is the quickest way to visualize a development in context and prevent costs and subscriptions to data sources spiraling out of control long term when assessing a site’s feasibility.
There are so many advantages to using VU.CITY’s 3D digital twin technology, from being able to understand and assess a site’s opportunities and challenges, testing refined designs in context, enhancing pre-app conversations and planning submissions, to improving how everyone involved collaborates.
Easily test massing to understand design feasibility.
Realise a site’s potential by viewing and assessing recently consented developments across Manchester.
Assess multiple initial massing options at an early stage and GEA potential quickly.
Easily import your designs from external 3D software (such as Revit, Rhino, SketchUp & 3ds Max) into the Manchester or Rochdale and test how they will work in situ.
Quickly view and assess the initial impact of light from your proposed developments.
Conduct high-level townscape and visual impact assessments. Agree on key views to analyse further. Select key views and confidentially present your proposals to take stakeholder on the journey of design.
Save time by eliminating unnecessary views for analysis. Understand where your scheme can be seen from and which views are critical to assess.
Mark up comments and actions and easily collaborate on a site or scheme with project team members.
VU.CITY helps organise, visualise, and analyse city data in the clearest and most accessible way to make better decisions.
Quickly identify and appraise sites. VU.CITY's visualization, design functionality and planning data, allow you to optimise your designs.
Now everyone involved can have a clear, universal understanding of what’s proposed and why, in a single, secure place. VU.CITY makes decision-making democratic and fair.
Remove barriers and minimise risks early. Have confidence in your designs and plans. Increase buy-in for project success.
