Our Services

We are a 3D technical CAD bureau specialising in light based analytics for sensitive development sites.

3D Laser Scanning

We can provide quick and affordable on-site laser surveys using the latest range scanners, accurately capturing your site and surroundings in a digital data format.

Point Cloud to CAD/BIM

From Point Cloud information we can create 2D surveys, plans and 3D CAD models for use in most software. These can then be used by your team for further studies.

Daylight and Sunlight

Using specially created models we can analyse overshadowings effects, internal and external light studies in support of planning applications (BRE Guidelines).

Rights of Light

We can run in-depth light contour studies, EFZ calculations and advise you on the risks, helping minimise legal problems with cutbacks and envelope studies.

CG Rendering and 3D Views

We produce high quality Verified Views, AVRs, Walk-Through videos and renderings to suit most online and multimedia promotional platforms.

AR and VR Development

A love of 3D software and technology has enabled us to develop new methods of working with building design using the latest technology.


Here are a few featured 3D interactive examples and case studies we have worked on, all are available in fullscreen mode.
