We produce highly accurate AVR Verified Views and Photomontages that tell you what a development will look like in the real world.
Also known as Accurate Visual Representations (AVR) and Visually Verified Montages (VVM), Verified Views are created using a combination of real-world photography, survey data, 3D modelling and computer-generated images (CGI).
The photomontages produced are extremely accurate, scaled images of what a scheme will look like in the real-world context of its proposed location. They are used to help clients gain planning consent all across the UK.
Our verified views methodology follows rigorous advice set out by the Landscape Institute and London View Framework to ensure robustness. Often these images provide the first definitive idea of exactly how a development will look once complete, and therefore must be reliable and highly accurate. We use the latest industry technology to develop all AVR classifications (AVR0 – AVR3). The views created show exactly the way the building would look in reality. This is vital when assessing the visual impact of the proposed development.
All our Verified Views use precise,
site-specific geographic data and cutting-edge 3D modelling to create the virtual
view exactly as it would be seen in the real-world. CGI is then used to place
the development within the photomontage, making it a seamless transition
between the reality of the photograph and the 3D model.
Rbmp is a full-service studio. From photography to view creation, we carry out every stage of the process ourselves. This allows us to be dynamic, cost-effective and adapt to client changes and requirements.
We are an award winning creative team with a background in landscape architecture and a passion for communicating proposals and ideas. We have provided highly accurate Verified Views for over 50 schemes within the past 3 years for clients including The Eden Project, Blenheim Palace, Barratt Homes, Peter Brett Associates, Tide Construction and London Borough of Islington. Permission has being secured for projects including schemes of 2500 residential units in Bristol and 40-storey towers in Croydon, London.
It is an absolute joy to work with rbmp. They are extremely reliable and helpful, easy to speak to and to understand (no jargon) and always get back to you really quickly, trying to find the most cost-effective and creative solution.
Large scale commercial developments are often obtrusive and high visual impact. Accurate Verified Views are able to quickly assimilate how the scheme will look once complete and help during the design process in mitigating any harmful effects.
Landmarks by their nature are imposing and usually very visible. Analysing the visibility of the scheme from various viewpoints is key to ensuring that the design intent is properly realised and that the effects of magnitude and scale are appropriate to the site and wider locality.
Protection and conservation of historic properties and sites throughout the UK is a key component of the planning system. Restricted availability of sites, and constraints on land use, especially in urban settings often means that new development can be in close proximity to key protected areas and building.
The requirements for new developments in rural areas are often set against the protection of the surrounding countryside. As rural economic and cultural diversification accelerates, so does the requirement for new types of land use which can lead to new structures requiring Verified Views.
‘Zone of Theoretical Visibility’ (ZTV) and ‘Zone of Visual Impact’ (ZVI) assessments are a study to determine how visible a new development would be in the landscape. Using up to date GIS (Geographic Information Systems) mapping techniques we are able to say to a high degree of accuracy where a development will be and won’t be seen.
CGI animation is a computer generated image used by landscape architects and architects around the world to show how a design concept will look once complete. In fact CGI technology has a wide range of uses in the construction industry. Illustrating how a concept will look, showing an interior design idea to painting a picture of a regeneration project, CGI is an architect’s best friend.
Architecture is rapidly moving towards sustainability. By incorporating the natural world into designs and concepts, landscape architects are helping lead the way for contemporary development. From eco-friendly properties and urban gardens, to buildings reflecting the beauty of the nature around it.
There’s actually a very simple answer to that question. A good lens is the one that does what you want or need it to do. So really, the type of lens you need is actually the second thing to consider. Your first question should always be: what type of photo do you want to take? Once you’ve figured that out, finding the right lens is the easy part.
