MVV approached 3DW to help with their planning process for a proposed EfW (Energy from Waste) facility near Wisbech in the UK. After discussions with the design team at MVV it was agreed upon that a wide-ranging interactive 3D model would be built for the project.
Geographically the 3D model represents an area of approximately 10km x 10km with a high-resolution 3D terrain supplemented with aerial imagery, key areas with highly detailed buildings, tree data, low detail massing buildings that help with the density of the solution. Inside the 3D Model, there are various locations plotted out that were agreed upon by MVV and a series of flythroughs that featured in the 3D portal that was produced for the project.
The 3D portal allows stakeholders to access plans at a distance, logging on and being able to see designs and a range of views rendered directly from the 3D model, view vital project information and get easy access to the team at MVV, logging ideas and feedback.
A project like this has many planning constraints to be considered before the application can move along its timeline right up to planning decisions, these constraints make informed design decisions for the whole project. At the touch of button, these constraints can be shown to stakeholders giving the user access to why and how a certain decision were made making the solution a truly interactive fluid way of consulting with all stakeholders.
