Chigwell Pumping Station – verified views

Not all cgi work is about making buildings look attractive. Verified views are an essential tool used in the planning process, and this case involved us creating visuals for a proposed new pumping station for Thames Water in Chigwell. The key here was to illustrate the true visual impact of the new station from the vantage point of local residents, and verified views are the only way to accurately do this.

We visited the site with our survey team and took a series of photographs. From the exact same points, the surveyors plotted a number of reference locations that could be provided to us in CAD form. Using this data we were able to precisely position the model of the pumping station against the chosen photographs, and after some careful editing the result is a true glimpse into the future!
