I am a Developer, Land Owner or Property Advisor. How can I use VU.CITY?
Join the revolution
Quickly assess the viability of potential development
Get an early understanding of the likely parameters of height, scale and massing in both the existing context and within the context of future planned development.
Make use of an extensive range of graphically presented data layers
Assess and appraise your designs, including Conservation Areas, listed buildings, protected and local viewing corridors, sunlight paths, and transport data, with further data overlays such as pedestrian (Legion) and traffic (VISSIM) available as an additional service.
Speed up and save money on Accurate Visual Representations (AVR)
VU.CITY transforms the scoping for AVRs, allowing for an accurate assessment of any view by placing a virtual camera anywhere within VU.CITY. The results can be shared with the local authority to demonstrate which views actually require full assessment. This removes superfluous views from this expensive process and ensures a comprehensive process to avoid the need for additional views to be added later.
Speed up the planning process
VU.CITY is the perfect tool for presentations to officers and Councillors, ensuring the local authority has a greater understanding of the impact of a scheme. VU.CITY can also be used through community consultation to help the public and other stakeholders understand proposals in context.
Save money on design costs
VU.CITY directly speeds up the iterative design process. Developers with their own licence can import files from their architects into their own VU.CITY to enable greater collaborative working and faster feedback.
Customise VU.CITY as a marketing tool
VU.CITY is a completely customisable digital platform. Companies can visually highlight all their projects or land ownerships, overlay bespoke data sets for your own internal use and as part of marketing and new business activities.
“VU.CITY allows planners to see the impact of their decisions in a city-wide context and developers to manage their expectations for viability. VU.CITY deploys new technology with intelligence gained from years of experience and understanding about the complex built environment.”
“Only very rarely do I come across a product that when I first see it I’m left wondering how we ever coped without it – VU.CITY is one of those products.”
