“We're bringing in architects and our clients and different consultants into one room and we're viewing the proposals, the massing of the buildings from day one, and we're building basically the drawings and the architecture and the massing through VU.CITY”

“Councils can see, planning officers can see very quickly when they see a development of VU.CITY that it makes sense to them. They really feel like we're not hiding anything from them. Historically, you'd give them five or six views and they'd go, "Oh, you cherry-picked the best ones." And now we can take them through that process and that's helped massively.”
Director - Iceni Projects
"The digitisation of planning as outlined in the Whitepaper presents an exciting step in speeding up the planning process and improving engagement with communities. We are already working with VU.CITY and some of our local authority partners to be a leader in digital consultation in line with the ambitions outlined in the new government Whitepaper."
Planning Director - British Land
"VU.CITY is helping us analyse projects at an early stage and refine elements of our live projects faster and more accurately. Being able to quickly assess a site or stress test things like massing and planning context provides us with more clarity and objectivity that would previously have taken us a lot longer to achieve."
Development Manager - Londonewcastle
"VU.CITY is not simply a 3D software offer, it's a four if not five dimensional space that incorporates live time and place capabilities. Going forward the synchronicity that VU.CITY provides to connect with other big data intelligence is an opportunity for urbanists to evidence with greater certainty, support for development or preservation initiatives."
