April 2013 Vattenfall - South Kyle Wind Farm
3DW are delighted to receive such positive feedback fromVattenfall, on the interactive 3D model we produced for the proposed South Kyle Wind Farm project. Ben O’Connor from Vattenfall said: “ The exhibitions went very well, the 3D model went down a treat with the locals!... There were a few people who were skeptical of the accuracy of visualisations presented by wind farm companies, but after going along one of the preset routes and recognising certain buildings they appeared to be convinced we don't distort the model in our favour, which was nice to see…we really wanted to get the message across that for a 50 turbine development the visibility from key areas is very low, and the model definitely helped convince the visitors of this.
March 2013 3D Model for Garston Master Planning, Liverpool
3dw unveiled an updated 3D model of the Garston area of Liverpool to support a new Master Planning initiative for the area. Working in conjunction with the City Council and environmental design consultants Urbed, the 3D model was used at a neighbourhood planning meeting where business owners, residents and other groups came together to discuss the issues in the area and ideas for making significant improvements.
As the project progresses the 3D model will be used as a tool to visualise different ideas for regenerating the infrastructure and layout of the area.

February 2013 Eneco - Navitus Bay Offshore Wind Exhibition
Feedback on the 3D model was
overwhelmingly positive. Irrespective of whether or not individuals agreed with
the Navitus Bay development, the model clearly presented the proposals in a
non-technical and unambiguous way which facilitated open, informed and
constructive discussions about the scheme.
