Our design and analysis work utilises a combination of 2D/3D CAD, specialist terrain modelling software and GIS applications to provide a variety of permutations of outputs and presentation styles to suit our Clients’ needs.
We work closely with surveyors to ensure that accuracy and geo-referencing is carried through from the start of the project to ensure that services, tree locations etc. are adequately provided for in opportunities and constraints plans and designs and for setting-out purposes.
Digital terrain modelling can be used to calculate water and cut-fill volumes, design landfill, mineral extraction and restoration landforms, produce isopachyte plans, slope and elevation analysis plans and predict settlement of landfills.
We can also produce visual analysis plans (Zones of Theoretical Visibility (ZTV), Zones of Visual Influence (ZVI)) for a variety of developments and interrogate this further to understand degrees of visibility and cumulative visibility (e.g. between wind farms).
