First project delivered after lock down.
We recently delivered this 2.5m long residential sales model back to its marketing suite in Bath after taking it away before the Covid 19 lockdown to add a new phase of detailed buildings. The project went on hold during the height of the pandemic because like many other businesses we had to close down for several weeks due to safety concerns. It was the first big project we completed after reopening the workshop and we have since completed several other smaller projects that also went on hold. You’ll note from the pics above that the model still has a large “empty” area – this is for a third phase which will be added at a later date.
Custom-built planning tool for Logistics division.
This multi-layered display is a custom-built planning tool for the Ministry of Defence Logistics team. They got in touch with a sketch design (literally a very rough sketch) and asked if it was something we could build. The idea was to create 4 vertically stacked transparent maps showing all the UK MOD bases so that the team could assess varying logistics routes by linking different depots both horizontally and vertically with colour-coded string. Our solution was this aluminium framed design that can be easily bolted together but also “flat-packs” into the white base for storage when not in use (which you can see in the inset pic above).
Mirror divided model creates eye catching optical illusion.
The client for this project, a manufacturer of industrial tarpaulins, wanted to show four “half-models” of circular fish cage products on one compact model which was creating a confusing visual combination. So we came up with the idea of placing a mirror down the centreline so that each half circular model looked whole when viewed against the mirror. You can hopefully see how well this works from the pics above.
Another high quality satellite model for the British space industry.
Completed last month, we’ve made several variations of this life-size CubeSat model for a number of different clients and we’re currently in mid-production of a further satellite model for yet another client (who saw this model and liked it). Designed for easier shipping, this model comes as four separate main components – acrylic base; tubular steel mount; main body; solar array panels – that can be easily slotted together on site. Even the aerials slot into place once the main model is assembled.
Model creates focal point for marketing suite.
When we delivered this model to the on-site marketing suite the client was really pleased to see how much of the architectural character of the buildings we’d been able to represent. The model was at 1:200 scale and showed phase 1 comprising three refurbished and renovated buildings in full detail and phase 2, three new-build apartment blocks, in simplified massing form. Fully detailed phase 2 buildings will be added at a later stage. If you click on the photos to enlarge them you should be able to fully appreciate the high level of detail we can achieve at this scale.
