Easily visualising projects in context

Designing new buildings with townscape and heritage sensitivities in mind can be crucial to gaining planning consent, which is why having independent advice is so vital. 

Identifying sensitivities from the start

Peter Stewart Consultancy provides expert advice with independent scrutiny and review in the fields of architecture, urban design, townscape and the historic environment.

The consultancy examines a project in relation to the bigger picture: how it will relate to the buildings, routes and spaces around it in how it looks and functions.

They identify sensitivities at an early stage of a project, providing townscape and visual impact assessments, and heritage and conservation area advice, right through to planning consent. 

Providing holistic advice

VU.CITY helps Peter Stewart Consultancy visualise each new development within its context so that architects and clients can clearly understand how different heights, bulks and scheme massings can fit.

Features such as being able to import a test model of different heights and scales by themselves, extrude massing, and set up and test viewpoints have been proving invaluable. 

The team is enthusiastic about the true value that VU.CITY can bring, believing that many more companies and consultancies are set to realise the same.

“We’re bringing in architects and our clients and different consultants in one room and we’re viewing the drawing, the architecture and the massing through VU.CITY.”

"Being able to extrude massing instead of waiting for the architect to send the model of a proposed development means we can start work on it ourselves."
