VU.CITY Rochdale is a stunning 3D landscape that’s accurate to within 15cm.
Users of our Rochdale 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 Rochdale on solutions for smarter decisions and project success.
VU.CITY has established relationships with many local authorities in the ever growing Greater Manchester region, including Rochdale Borough Council. Rochdale Borough Council has been using VU.CITY array of 3D visualization tools and data to ensure swift decision making in a planning process with increased transparency.
Rochdale has ambitious plans to develop 8,000 new homes and 4 million sq ft of new employment floorspace over the next five years. These proposals form part of Rochdale Borough Council’s growth plans which will reshape Rochdale as a place to live, work, connect and visit, and 3D visualization will be a key component to helping them deliver positive change.
There are so many advantages to using VU.CITY’s 3D digital twin technology, from being able to instantly understand and assess a site’s challenges and potential, to simplifying the planning application, to improving how everyone involved can collaborate in a single platform.
