In your words

“We’re bringing in architects and our clients and different consultants in one room and we’re viewing the drawing, the architecture and the massing through VU.CITY.”
Charlotte Orrell
Senior Planner at Iceni Projects
"VU.CITY is helping us analyse projects at an early stage and refine elements of our live projects faster and more accurately. Being able to quickly assess a site or stress test things like massing and planning context provides us with more clarity and objectivity that would previously have taken us a lot longer to achieve."

Development Manager - Londonewcastle
“VU.CITY is a valuable tool used in the development of our Local Plan at a time of unprecedented growth. It has brought a level of transparency that has helped us understand the impact of development on the character of our areas. This in turn is allowing us to create policies and develop aspirations for sites that are robust and tested, and is helping us to meaningfully engage with our communities.”

Urban Design Officer - Waltham Forest Council
“Councils can see, planning officers can see very quickly when they see a development of VU.CITY that it makes sense to them. They really feel like we're not hiding anything from them. Historically, you'd give them five or six views and they'd go, "Oh, you cherry-picked the best ones." And now we can take them through that process and that's helped massively.”

Laurie Handcock
Director - Iceni Projects
“The Royal Borough of Kingston have been using VU.CITY to review major applications for a few years and it helps us to get a quick understanding of a proposal's height, scale and mass at an early stage which is invaluable in aiding discussions around context, appropriateness and agreeing key views required for visual impact assessment.”

Chloe Clay
Urban Design Manager - Kingston Council
“We have found VU.CITY to be invaluable in our assessment of one of our major city centre regeneration schemes. We were able to 'walk the development' and assess the impact of the proposals in a way which would not have been possible with 2D drawings, illustrative material and more orthodox 3D modelling. VU.CITY has also allowed us to assess the scheme much more quickly and feedback to the applicant earlier.”

"The students were greatly helped by exploring their conceptual designs in their urban context by using VU.CITY’s accurate and immersive city model of London. It gives them greater understanding of their chosen sites and enhances their ability to portray their architectural ideas visually."

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some of the questions we're asked the most. Can’t find the answer you need? Just get in touch.

Can I add a model of a scheme I am working on into VU.CITY?

Yes, nobody else will see your scheme unless you share it with them, allowing you to collaborate with other VU.CITY licence holders online. You can also save projects, ensuring you can pick up where you left off when you log back into the platform.


How can I download geometry from VU.CITY?

All of the areas in the platform can be downloaded in .dwg format. We have split each city into a grid of 250m x 250m squares and you will shortly be able to select these from within the platform. Until then please contact sales on sales@vu.city and they will be able to provide you access to the required geometry.

We include two areas of 250m x 250m as part of your annual licence, additional areas are available at a reduce cost of £100 per 250m x 250m. Using VU.CITY greatly reduces the requirement to purchase additional geometry so we limit the amount you can purchase to 1 sq km.


How do I add a new user or city?

Currently you will need to speak to the sales team on 020 3889 7030 or sales@vu.city to add additional licences, we are working to provide this via our online portal soon.


Can I pay via invoice?

Yes, you are able to pay via invoice for annual subscriptions. Please contact sales at sales@vu.city and they will be able to provide an order form for signature.


Is there a student or academic licence?

Yes, VU.CITY offers free student licences and special course offers to equip the next generation of city makers with the latest visualization functionality to study and assess the impacts of change. Click here to see more.


How often is VU.CITY updated?

We add more areas, functionality, data or consents to cities on a weekly basis. Users are prompted to download updates when logging into the platform. Is there an area we don't cover yet - get in touch.
