Where will my next development be visible from, how will it fit into the surrounding area and how can this be mitigated?

Visualisation is a key component in communicating the appearance and impacts of a development, and technological advances allow cost-effective interpretation through a variety of media.

Atmos Consulting Visualisation and award-winning GIS teams work together to construct models and materials that allow developments to be consistently and accurately assessed.

Our Visualisation Expertise

Atmos has produced visualisations and graphics for over 100 wind farms across the UK, adapting our workflows to ensure they meet the latest stringent statutory body guidance. This experience has extended to visualisation production for major developments across a range of sectors including substation complexes, port expansions and solar arrays.

Building on our award-winning GIS platform, we create 3D terrain and object models that can be converted for use in a variety of software packages and used in a range of visualisation outputs.

The generation of flexible virtual models allows changes in project design to be rapidly and effectively communicated to clients, stakeholders and the public through robust wirelines, photomontages, animations and video fly-through. Baseline models also allow mitigation options to be designed for different scenarios and modelled over time,
incorporating landscaping proposals such as earthworks, bunding and vegetation.

"The planting proposals and visualisations developed by Atmos to resolve the Historic Scotland objection at the Binn Eco Park were critical to the project achieving consent.  It was a pleasure to work the Atmos team who were pragmatic and diligent in their approach to identifying mitigation solutions.“
