Development models tend to be found on the realistic side of model making, and often within a sales and marketing environment. As realistic models, we strive to accurately depict the buildings as closely as possible, from the surrounding landscaping plans down to the colour of the window frames.
Development models are a great tool for showing perspective clients or customers what they may be investing in, as well as helping them understand the context and orientation of the building. Adding extras such as lighting can also allow a customer to identify exactly which property they are buying and how it sits within the site. Such an advantage can be vital within the sales room, especially when selling is being made ‘off plan’. You could even have a model made showing a section through the building, again adding to a customer’s understanding of the building layout.
Such a model can also benefit the existing surrounding inhabitants during the building process; allowing them to see how a development may impact and possible improve an area, and in such a way that can be observed at the leisure of the client rather than via a presentation of 2D images or pamphlet pushed through the front door.
