Visualization of Projects
There is no better way to communicate among the design team, client, public reviewers, and the public – than to “show them the project”. It’s that old adage…one picture is worth a thousand words. Well, it is true in magnitudes with something as complicated as a development project. We have been creating project visualizations for over a decade and have had the pleasure of working on some of the country’s most interesting projects.
Using the engineering CAD (computer-aided-design) files and actual existing site photography – we create very accurate and realistic views of your project. It doesn’t matter if the project is a home, a commercial center, or an industrial complex. We have worked with design teams to visualize bridges, water, and wastewater treatment plants, tunnel projects and a host of other projects. We can also produce computer animations of these projects when the size and cost of the project warrant it.
How do we do this? We take the 3D CAD file and export it to modeling software, usually 3D Studio (on smaller projects we may use other modeling software). Then we perfect the model by adding details like photographic land cover imagery. We can add people, cars and trucks, trees and shrubs. Actually, the model can be as detailed as you want. It is not as expensive as you might think. In fact, with your factor in the great time-savings through speedy approvals – it really makes a lot of sense.
Notable projects include:
Oakland-Bay Bridge Replacement Project (San Francisco Bay), Woodrow Wilson Bridge (Washington DC), Ravanel Bridge (Charleston, SC), and several others.
Water & Wastewater Treatment Plants
East Bay Municipal Water District (Oakland, CA), Pittsburgh Municipal Wastewater Plant (Pittsburgh, PA), Detroit Stormwater Treatment Facility, (Detroit, MI) and others.
