Virtual Engagement Without Restriction
The planning & development consultation process has always been stuck in traditional ways of presenting the information to the public.
The 2020 Pandemic has caused those needing to engage with the public, or other organisations, to look for new tools.
Many of us have been using these tools years before Covid 19 came along, but we do now believe they are here to stay.
A Virtual Public Consultation (VPC) is a 3D environment that is designed to mimic a ‘Real World’ exhibition space, making it a more familiar experience, whilst at the same time making it more engaging and interesting for the visitor, who in turn will leave better informed.
Virtual Public Consultation – 1
The High Street
The High Street is set in a typical row of retail units that should be identifiable to everybody.
This example starts with an optional arrival video that really sets the scene, and hopefully comforts the visitor that the surroundings are familiar, and that it is not like being faced with a harsh corporate website.
Virtual Public Consultation – 2
The Gallery is set on the top floor of a contemporary exhibition centre.
With a strong visual entrance, light and airy feel, and glimpses of the sky, this space is very flexible and can be easily rearranged to suite any layout.
The layout can be furnished and branded to your requirements.
Don’t forget to try out the Interactive and Augmented Reality 3D model, and if you fancy some fresh air, why not visit the existing or proposed sites via the back exit door.

The Function Room
This Virtual Public Engagement is set within a more traditional Function Room setting, with a single viewpoint to simplify the visitor interaction with the room.
In this example we have also turned on the optional ‘Text to Speech’ function that is becoming more standard in recent years, as it aids the poorly sighted and those with dyslexia and similar conditions. It can be disabled using the button to top right. The voice used comes from the users machine, setup within the accessibility settings.
Here are a few of the available features
