In Detail

Urbanlogic are New Zealand’s leading Verified Landscape Visual Impact Assessment consultants. We have a proven track record in providing accurate and verifiable simulated views.

We have provided images for planning applications, visual impact assessments, and provided provable images in hearings. An important element in a planning or resource consent application is an accurate simulated view, what will it really look like from here?

Unless these simulated views follow a strict and provable methodology then they are little more than an artist’s impression and can be challenged.

Using a thorough and rigorous methodology we guarantee the computer generated images of your development will be accurately montaged into the photograph.

Urbanlogic methods employed in order to ensure that the images produced are of the required standard and that everything within the process is accurate and that this accuracy can be verified.
