- Historic Sites
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.
Views both to and from a new development and historic site need to be considered, ensuring that the character is not adversely affected but allowing the new design to work alongside the existing condition. Gauging the visual impact is extremely important and verified views are a useful tool in the assessment process. Verified Views and AVRs provide a definitive picture of what a scheme will look like once complete from carefully selected viewpoints. This includes materials and lighting, as well as size, scale and massing.
It is important to work closely with design teams to ensure that the design intent is properly presented within accurate visuals for the purposes of conservation. This may be to show the impact of a proposed development, or to show how a new development will work with and expand the use of an existing historic site.
Basic parameter height models AVR0 views or more detailed AVR2 and AVR3 visual renders can be produced. These accurate visuals can address the various aspects and consideration unique to each historic site, allowing planning authorities to have complete confidence in decision making.
