Heatons’ landscape architecture team utilise industry standard software, for CAD drawing production, 3D modelling, high quality image manipulation and graphics.

This includes specialist workload within the minerals and waste sectors for volumetric calculations and efficient phased working and restoration schemes.

Zone of theoretical visibility (ZTV) modelling is used to support detailed landscape and visual impact assessment.

Our visualisation work ranges from annotated viewpoint photographs, basic 3D wireframe or massing models, through to more detailed photomontages and rendering.  Accurate technical visualisations support written assessments, whilst illustrative visualisations may be intended for marketing or to support public engagement.
