Civil + Government

 

Educate the public on how taxpayer funds are being utilized. We have done a wide range of models for civil projects- highway interchanges, ports and land re-purposing are just a few. save the architecture page but build a replacement one that matches format of others. photos should have links to resorts, interior design, hospital, shopping center, residential, museum, bridges and topographic

 

Park Service Topography Model

This extremely high detailed topography model of Boulder County Colorado was completed for the Park service. The model was created as part of a traveling exhibit to show the natural conditions of this beautiful county. This model is about the landforms and water...

Highway interchange model

Milwaukee Transportation and CH2MHill engineering have used us many times to construct models showing necessary changes to their highways throughout the state. This model for the Brown County interchange was built in the horizontal scale of 1″ = 200′ with...

Model of Presidio in San Francisco

The highway leading to the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco required major updates. We were tasked with building a ten foot civil engineering model of the whole Presidio area from the Golden Gate Bridge to the Palace of Fine Arts . Where the highway previously...

Civil model in Milwaukee

This civil engineering model of the Michell Interchange in Milwaukee covers a lot of area. The funky shape is required to show just the areas affected by construction. The model sections each had to come apart and be reassembled easily. The crate nested all of the...

Zoo Interchange civil model

This model of the interchange centering around the Milwaukee Zoo is a complex model covering a lot of area. In order to save money and still show context we designed the model to be part 3d construction and part aerial photographs. All of the buildings that were...

Military model for urban assault training

War games are no joke. This scale model shows an actual urban assault training ground. The model is used to stage teams of soldiers for training exercises. The military is seldom about large land attacks anymore. Our soldiers need experience in smaller teams that know...

Community model showing brochure graphics

Our architectural model website shows many models of communities. This one is different because instead of showing properties and homes, we were asked to match the graphics on the developers brochure and essentially recreate that brochure as a three dimensional model....

Four Bridges

These civil engineering models were constructed as alternative designs for the Hoover Dam commuter bridge project below. The models were built in a larger scale so each one reached four feet across. Sections of the canyon on each side were accurately cut so that the...

Hoover Dam

One of the great tourist attractions in the west is Hoover Dam. Besides regulation the flow of the Colorado River and generating electricity for several states, it is also a marvelous place to visit. It is so popular an attraction that tourists jam the highway over...
