Build 2016 Construction & Engineering Awards 64 he firm works internationally on projects for Atkins, Populous, M&C Saatchi, Versace Home, Damac, BUJ Architects, Jaguar Land Rover, and a long list of architectural and marketing firms. Caroline expresses her pride in the firm’s performance over the past 12 months. “In the past year we have collaborated with heavy weights including Damac, Versace Home and M&C Saatchi on Aykon London One, Nine Elms. Our studio did a brilliant job, delivering an outstanding animation of the internal and external of the development, with impressive photorealism throughout. We enjoy working with clients from early planning applications through to the marketing phase. Our client, BUJ Architects, recently won planning for Portal Way West Residential Tower in London. We delivered all planning images and supporting documentation, through to marketing CGI’s followed by the final animation.’ Caroline believes her firm is set apart from its competitors by its focus on providing an increasingly wide range of services. “Our USP as an agency covers multiple areas. Firstly, we are a cross spe- cialist studio, delivering CGI, animation and verifiable projects. We are able to do this due to our talented studio teams and large render farm, which was purpose built to over 728 cores, with 1.45 terabytes of RAM. This capacity means that we can work on a high volume of animation and CGI projects at any one time. “We are unique, as we deliver photorealism to our clients by creating images using highly detailed and accurate models, rather than just using Photoshop alone. The way we work allows flexibility in amending images. Once we have created a model or worked on and updated a model, multiple views can be quickly updated as well. Our clients are able to choose whether they wish to animate their project, and this gives them further flexibility. They are able to do this because most of the CGI elements are modelled, meaning we can stretch the CGI or animation phases as far as needed. This approach also benefits clients who have already modelled projects, in part or in full, themselves. “Our specialised planning team deliver verified photomontage projects for planning applications, including strategic view analysis from both 3D models and on-site work, wireline, full documentation and EIA.” Best for Built Environment CGI and Animation – UK Munrostudios has over 18 years’ experience delivering large scale international projects for architecture, aviation, motorsport, infrastructure, stadia and brands.
