VU.CITY Guildford is a stunning 3D landscape that’s accurate to within 15cm. Users of our Guildford model are making better, faster decisions by exploring potential massing and designs in context to opportunities and constraints.
Now all stakeholders can collaborate with VU.CITY Guildford on solutions for smarter decisions and project success.
Guildford town centre is historic, with striking topography and attractive vistas into it from the surrounding countryside and the Surrey Hills.Guildford has a number of important key landmarks; the prominent Cathedral is found on Stag Hill, and the town’s distinct medieval castle lies to the centre, with landscaped gardens, and important views across Guildford from its square tower.
Visualisation is key in Guildford, as development must be sensitive to key landmark buildings, with a number of strategic views to be considered from the river Wey, towards the town and in the town centre itself.
Users of VU.CITY Guildford include Guildford Borough Council, JTP, Leonard Design Architects, and Hawkins\Brown who have already discovered the model’s many benefits, from being able to understand and assess a site’s opportunities and challenges, testing refined designs in context, enhancing planning applications and conversations, to improving how everyone involved collaborates.
Easily test massing to understand design feasibility.
Realise a site’s potential by viewing and assessing recently consented developments across Guildford.
Assess multiple initial massing options at an early stage and GEA potential quickly.
Easily import your designs from external 3D software (such as Revit, Rhino, SketchUp & 3ds Max) into the Guildford model and test how they will work in situ.
Quickly view and assess the initial impact of light from your proposed developments.
Conduct high-level townscape and visual impact assessments. Agree on key views to analyse further. Select key views and confidentially present your proposals to take stakeholder on the journey of design.
Save time by eliminating unnecessary views for analysis. Understand where your scheme can be seen from and which views are critical to assess.
Mark up comments and actions and easily collaborate on a site or scheme with project team members.
VU.CITY's project collaboration space, the Hub, allows you to seamlessly communicate with stakeholders, to make better design & planning decisions, faster.
