Southampton, the third biggest city in the South East outside of London, has a rich and varied townscape that has evolved through the centuries.
Much of the city was destroyed during WWII and later restored in the 1950s and 1990s. Strategically, it is located in the heart of the South Coast, and the city's built environment is heavily influenced by its maritime heritage, as is the Port of Southampton, which serves as a regional transportation centre.
VU.CITY Southampton provides knowledge of critical views around the city, such as those directed at the Civic Centre and St Michael's Church. This allows you to assess the influence that future developments may have on the skyline, as well as the opportunity to explore the model from a bird's eye view and the view of the citizen.
Southampton City Council's shared data layers help you take key considerations and constraints into account early when designing a scheme. VU.CITY Southampton is helping built environment professionals to improve communications with clients, win contracts, and create an inclusive narrative with all stakeholders.
