Accurate Measured Viewpoints

Accurate measured viewpoints provide a visual representation, with precision positioning of buildings in a cityscape. They are increasingly being requested by planning authorities to help improve understanding of the impact of a project within the current landscape or skyline.

Using photography and hi-tech precision equipment, our team can exactly pinpoint where a building will be placed within an urban setting. This level of accuracy enables the architect to clearly communicate their designs to planning teams. This makes it easier to understand and reliably assess the new building in its true context.

Key Benefits

  • Advanced techniques create positive planning outcomes
  • Accurate measurements are taken at precise points and submitted to the client via marks on an image and co-ordinates within a table
  • Clear insight into the new building’s place as a physical presence in the cityscape
  • Ability to design and place a new building into the skyline which will be a measured visual representation of the finished construction


  • Accurate co-ordinates and data sets relating to existing digital photographic features within proposed development images
  • A 3D AutoCAD file showing co-ordinates of the position of buildings around the proposed site

The site at Grey Mare Lane has been a huge project that will reinvigorate an area of Manchester and enhance its’ residential neighbourhoods. Powers’ contribution to the planning and layout of the site has been invaluable to us. We have been able to locate and map out the complicated service routes, which has further enabled us to make informed decisions and recommendations on how the site can develop in the longer-term. We have worked with Powers on projects in the past, so we were confident of the company’s capabilities and the quality of the survey results.
