BIM Software is used to generate 3D massing models on topographic surveys.
Our Master Planning experience includes:
Residential Plans, including SFD (Single Family Dwellings)
A fit study is a quick translation of constraints, building area and by-laws into a physical 3D representation options. Basic elevations and colour impressions can be added as well.
Using BIM modelling and municipal data, shadows of proposed development can be illustrated to address issues of neighbourhood and authorities for various seasons of the year. In the same exercise sun capture on the development site can be understood and maximized.
Simulating actual views out from windows of proposed buildings & units help with marking. Vista studies may be required for approvals in some communities, such as the Battery in Newfoundland, Canada.
