Port Of Dundee, Land South Of Stannergate Road

Dundee, GVA Grimley

OPEN was approached by GVA Grimley to undertake 3D visualisations in support of a Planning Permission in Principle for a mixed manufacturing facility (renewable energy) at the Port of Dundee after Local Authority planning officers raised concerns regarding the height and mass of the proposed buildings.

A layout of the proposed Site 1 and Site 2 assembly sheds was modelled using coloured ‘development envelopes’ related to the height, width and depth of each of the structures. The coloured envelopes were modelled at the maximum height of the largest structures or buildings within each area and therefore represent a worst case scenario, showing the area in which development of the proposed structures will be built. This is sometimes referred to as a Rochdale Envelope. Each shed could extend to a maximum height of 35m.

Viewpoints were taken from prominent locations along the shores of the Firth of Tay and computer generated renders and photomontages were produced to demonstrate how the structures would sit within the existing urban setting.

Permission in Principle was granted in November 2012.
