LEADING WITH TECHNOLOGY
WELCOME TO VIRTUAL BUILD ARCHITECTURAL STUDIO

Specialising In Architectural Design &
Presentation Since 1988

We have worked in a Full 3D BIM environment since 1989, to design buildings, and achieve planning permission for thousands of homes, businesses, and public facilities throughout the south of England.
Working in Full 3D from Concept through to Planning, ensures our drawings fully coordinate, and the vast majority of design and construction issues can be addressed in the virtual space, long before the contractor starts on site.

Director of Design & Technology

“We pride ourselves on the quality of our work, and the high level of service we provide, to all of our clients, regardless of task or project size.”

Project Journey

We can help with any individual stage of your project, or the complete process if you prefer.

1

CONCEPT & FEASIBILITY DESIGN TO FULL PLANNING

Our Architectural & Urban Design team can put together either a Concept Design or more detailed Feasibility Study to give you an idea as to what may be achievable on your site.
This then gives you something to take forward to gauge comment or seek finance.
We can then work the project up into a full Planning Application.

2

VIRTUAL PUBLIC CONSULTATION & ENGAGEMENT

From housing schemes and mixed developments, through to large infrastructure and engineering projects, we can creative an informative and feature rich environment to enable you to address locals concerns. 
This style of presentation has come into its own during the pandemic, but it has proven a valuable vehicle to engage with the public, so it looks like it is here to stay.

3

VISUALISATION &
TECHNOLOGY

Our full workflow is based on the very best technologies at every stage.
This means we can easily move our design model into any of our Architectural Visualisation paths at any point, at vastly reduced production cost.
This also means that as your project heads to site we are able create a full Virtual Sales Suite at a greatly reduced cost than starting from scratch.
