VU.CITY Liverpool is revolutionising the design and planning process.
VU.CITY's 15cm accurate, fully interactive and immersive model of Liverpool creates a virtual environment in which to test new ideas, with rich functionality and data, and lead to a clear understanding of what’s proposed for better decision-making and positive outcomes.
Liverpool has an impressive cultural heritage, with magnificent buildings including two striking cathedrals and neoclassical St George's Hall. Its ongoing urban regeneration programme is transforming what was once a dilapidated city centre into one of northern England’s most pleasant cities. The future of the Liverpool City Region is full of excitement: a region worth £23bn annually to UK PLC with an array of forthcoming billion-pound regeneration schemes and multi-million-pound development initiatives.
Digitisation of planning and design will be crucial to proposals becoming a reality. By using VU.CITY, architects and developers can easily view the feasibility of a proposed project in context and understand the visual impact on Liverpool’s listed buildings early on.
The regeneration is also the opportunity to enable open discussion and collaboration on some of the most exciting schemes in the North West built environment. VU.CITY enables architects, planners and developers to make presentations and reports of exceptional clarity with multiple high quality images to increase understanding, support and buy-in by clients and local planning officers.
Architects, planners and developers use VU.CITY Liverpool to address fundamental questions around planning and development such as ‘What will the development look like?’, 'Who will it affect?’, 'How might it affect them?’ Our 3D model of Liverpool helps every party involved to organise, visualise and analyse city data in the clearest and most accessible way to get the right answers to make the best decisions.
