“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.”

"VU.CITY allows us to convey ideas when physical engagement is not possible, assisting the decision-making process in a way in which all stakeholders can relate to the proposal and its impact in the surroundings."

"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."
Design Director - Stallan-Brand
“VU.CITY is a valuable tool used in the development of our Local Plan at a time of unprecedented growth. It has brought a level of transparency that has helped us understand the impact of development on the character of our areas. This in turn is allowing us to create policies and develop aspirations for sites that are robust and tested, and is helping us to meaningfully engage with our communities.”
Urban Design Officer - Waltham Forest Council
“Architecture is essentially a 3D discipline, so VU.CITY is effectively showing what is already in an architect’s head in a way that hasn’t been possible before. The platform enables you to immediately understand the cityscape, the context, constraints, daylight, sunlight and the view angles, not just as it is today, but how it will be in the future. That’s incredibly valuable.”
