Iceni Projects

Iceni Projects are a planning consultancy that helps build better ‘places’ to work, rest and play, whilst ensuring they are timeless for future generations. Iceni have been at the forefront of adopting PlanTech solutions through their Iceni Futures group, to better their work and deliver more value for their clients, which led them to adopting VU.CITY…

Iceni have been using VU.CITY to support their townscape and heritage impact assessments, preliminary viewpoint studies. Helping them make more informed decisions and changes prior to pre-app, leading to better collaboration and trust on projects with clients, architects and London’s boroughs.

Councils can see, officers can see very quickly when they see a development in VU.CITY that it makes sense to them...Historically, you’d give the Borough five or six views and they would go - “you cherry picked the best ones”. Now we can take them through that process and that’s helped massively".

You can visualise it (the scheme) from street level, roof level, from someone’s window… Our clients are seeing that early and they are making the change before we even go to pre-app. Which means some of the concerns are being removed immediately.
