3D Modelling … It’s not just for Architects!

Posted on January 12, 2017 by Forde George

Whilst many believe that conceptual design, 3D modelling and visualisations can only be obtained from the employment of an Architect, this could not be further from the truth.

Here at Forde George we are increasingly being asked to lend our expertise, not just for the purposes of condition surveys, but also for the creation of concept designs. Using the latest in BIM programming, our in-house CAD team are often requested to create 3D visualisations and ‘walk-through’ videos of such concept designs, allowing our clients to gain a more realistic feel of how their property could look.

Below are a few visuals from a first draft concept proposal for one of our clients in Exeter, including a screen shot of the model in progress (Image 4).  More detailed designs and models can include elements such as: landscaping (topography) to show how the building sits in the surrounding land, imagery to indicate how a building would look in its street scene, and high level rendering to show how the materials and colour choices of a structure
