Bangor University New Building – Scale 1:400
One of the main purposes of this model was to demonstrate how this major new building addresses a complex, steeply sloping site. It was also used to illustrate the scale and massing of the new development in relation to the existing university buildings and the surrounding townscape.
New Hospital – Scale 1:400
More and more clients are cottoning on to just how useful 1:400 scale can be. If the model has to be kept compact, either for portability or due to lack of space, but also needs to clearly illustrate the architectural character of the buildings, this scale option is well worth considering. This model gives a good overview of the site layout and general massing and the high level of detail in the buildings is a very authentic representation of the proposed materials and finishes.
Planning Application Model – Scale 1:750
This is another excellent example of how clear and informative a 1:750 scale model can be, despite the main building being less than 50mm tall. The proposed new building is made to a surprisingly detailed level with crisp representation of the architecture, including window fenestration. This style of model is quick and relatively inexpensive to produce but the clean, fresh appearance has charm and clarity, which goes a long way to help sell a scheme.
Redevelopment Area Planning Model – Scale 1:1000
We’ve made several models for local government backed redevelopment areas, and this was the third such project in the last couple of years. Winning all of them through a strict tendering process we had to demonstrate that we could deliver outstanding quality at a competitive price. This small scale model was used to illustrate the masterplan for the proposed redevelopment of a huge decommissioned steelworks site.
Detailed Internal Layout for Luxury Health Spa – Scale 1:100
Occasionally (not as often as we’d like) we get a real challenge in terms of authentic detailing of a model. This particular project was just such a case, its purpose being to show the internal layout and detailed finishes of a luxurious new health spa. The client wanted all the proposed internal fixtures and fittings accurately reproduced, from massage beds and gym equipment right down to floor colours and tile patterns. One of the close-up images features the finely detailed fins of the building’s sophisticated solar shading system.
