VERIFIED PHOTOMONTAGES + CGIs

We produce Verified Photomontages to inform development design, LVIA/TVIA, and the decisions of planning authorities.

 

The methodology used by Model Works has been developed and refined by specialists in the field in Ireland & the UK, including ourselves, and conforms with the latest industry guidance. The method is accepted by planning authorities to produce accurate & verifiable visualisations of likely impacts. We are experienced at presenting evidence at oral hearings.

 

All site photography and surveying is carried out by our in house photographer using the latest technology and equipment.

 

LVIA (LANDSCAPE VISUAL IMPACT ASSESSMENT)

Our expert in-house Landscape Architect and Town Planner prepares LVIA/TVIA reports and EIAR chapters for planning applications, for all types and scales of development in the urban and rural contexts.

 

We provide a comprehensive LVIA/TVIA service, with our reports informed and supported by our own industry-leading Verified Photomontages.

 

SCALE MODELS

Whether for the planning process or marketing, the most eloquent way to tangibly convey an architectural vision is through the medium of scale model making. Our models range from shoe box to room-sized; for single buildings to entire cities; from simple, elegant timber construction to 3D-printed composite materials and fully interactive multimedia-model combinations.

 

With 35 years’ experience and over 1000 models built for projects in Ireland and around the world, we have earned an international reputation for precision, quality and innovation in the creation of exquisite scale models.

 

SHADOW STUDIES

With an ever increasing focus on compact urban growth, development density and height are rising. This has consequences for surrounding properties’ and public spaces’ access to daylight and sunlight.

 

We carry out shadow analysis studies to inform the design process and for submission with planning applications. Our studies are carried out in accordance with the Building Research Establishment (BRE) document Site Layout Planning for Daylight and Sunlight, A Guide to Good Practice (BRE, 2011). This is the standard prescribed by planning authorities in the UK and Ireland.
