3D Visualisation

In addition to our standard services we also provide 3D visualisation work, this is generally used as either part of the design process or as an illustration to enable clients to fully understand the design intent of the project. Some of our completed and on going projects have been designed using Sketchup alone; the decision to produce 3D work, unless specifically requested, will be at the discretion of RIO landscapes.

We will normally base this on an individual project basis, requirements of the project type and site conditions and when we feel that this will be the only way to really communicate the design effectively. We use SketchUp due to its intuitive nature and ease in communicating ideas and finished work in 3D. We find that SketchUp is useful from the earliest stages of design to the end of construction. It enables us to be creative, explore ideas and provide an indication on how it will appear when constructed which we find really useful.
