Visualisation

Our multidisciplinary visualisations bring future projects to life, aiding decision-making and engagement.


We combine design data from across all disciplines to create robust representations for architects, engineers, developers, planners and governments. These benefit any stage of a project – feasibility, early design, planning, consultation, detailed design or marketing.

Clarity at every stage

We’re regularly engaged throughout the course of a project, building on what went before to create increasingly comprehensive models. This was the case for the London 2012 Olympics, where we visualised the planning, staging and legacy of this vast undertaking in unprecedented detail.

Our expertise supports design, maximises value and communicates unbuilt buildings and infrastructure to stakeholders, media and public. Whatever the project and whatever the stage, an engaging visualisation gives people confidence in what they see.

Watch: this short film shows some of our visualisation work across the globe.

Combining capabilities

Bringing different capabilities together produces powerful results. By innovating with the latest technologies we find engaging ways to bring unbuilt schemes to life. Interactive, augmented, and virtual reality experiences are just some of our tools.

We applied this approach to our work on HS2. Our interactive visualisation portal and visualisation/sound demonstrations have set new benchmarks in communicating complexity – informing parliamentary debate and decision-making on this major new railway.

Today, clients around the world benefit from our intelligent application of the latest tools. In New York, for example, we produced photo-realistic visualisations for the Second Avenue Subway. Because these incorporated pedestrian analysis carried out using our MassMotion software, they showed exactly how people would use the new station.

Pushing boundaries

In everything we do, we have one aim: to transform how the built environment is communicated by using data from across disciplines to envisage projects in increasingly useful ways.
