VU.CITY Watford saves time and money for professionals involved in the design, planning and development of the built environment.
Our accurate and interactive 3D digital twin model of Watford is enriched with data and tools to help you collaborate and analyse the real world impact of proposals, allowing you to make better design, and planning decisions, faster.
Watford has a long established urban centre, with a market charter dating back to the 12th century. Its urban form features a range of typologies, including terrace Victorian housing and planned housing estates from the 20th century, giving Watford a diverse urban character.
Planning and designing new schemes in Watford is complex, with significant development taking place on previously built land, concentrating in selected areas of the borough, such as the town centre, Watford Junction, and the Health Campus.
Understanding the varied context, maximising the excellent transport links, whilst remaining sensitive to the character of the area and environmental challenges is critical in creating well designed schemes to serve Watford for decades to come.
