Verified Views for proposed new residential building on the site of the former Sidcup Swim Centre.
It often requires just one change to spark new life in an area. Abandoned buildings undermine the value of a hight street and affect the property values within a community, while doing nothing to contribute to the daily lives of those living nearby. As a result, redevelopment opportunities can be a real asset to local communities, providing housing and services that were not previously available, and ending the limbo period in which many abandoned buildings find themselves trapped.
One such example of this was in Sidcup, South-East London. We were approached by Montreaux Ltd to produce a selection verified views to help them gain planning permission for a redevelopment project there. The site was an old swim centre. Once the thriving heart of the community, it now lay empty and abandoned, untouched since 2008. The plans Montreaux proposed to the council saw a great shift in the building’s use, demolishing it to instead create a block of 26 new flats as well as a 24-hour gym.
In order to help both our clients and the local planning authority gain a better understanding of how the proposal would look in amongst the rest of the street, they came to us. We produced four verified views, all at AVR3 level. Each one was a photorealistic montage designed to situate the proposed building seamlessly into photos of the real world so that those involved could best assess the visual impact it would have.
We took great care in producing these verified views, with accurate lighting conditions, precise positioning, and correct building material textures. This allowed the photomontages to be as accurate to life as possible, providing a technically sound view of precisely what the development would look like in reality.
