Large scale civil engineering projects often demand a physical display model to demonstrate the area being built out or refitted. In most cases, these models illustrate how stakeholders are affected during the different phases of a project through to completion. We have built engineering models of many bridges including the new commuter bridge downstream from Hoover Dam. We create civil scale models of major airport makeovers, complex re-routing of major freeway interchanges, multi-faceted transportation road and rail projects, cutting edge bio-fuel plants, windmill energy generating farms and nuclear power reactors. We get to know each project as the engineers and design team’s visualize the future of these civic wonders. We go out of our way to make the 3D scale model of your project as realistic as the one planned.
Recently, we have completed four separate highway models for the Wisconsin Department of Transportation. Each of these were taken to public areas such as the state fairs to show improvements on the main arterials. Public outcry can be mitigated by being up front and telling the public what is going to be done, how long it will take, and how they are going to be inconvenienced in the meantime. The models are used to communicate all of these needed concepts directly to the public. We have created 5 different designs for the bridge reconstruction for the 6th street viaduct in California. These models were used by the designers and engineers to create a consensus on the design process and the construction costs.
Whatever intent or purpose you may have in building a 3D physical scale model we have the expertise to demonstrate the details you have designed into it. Any project your engineers have planned--our team of model makers can build to scale replicating every vital detail. Our shop’s facility has the latest in equipment, the space needed and the management team to guide your project through while you oversee it’s direction. You can even track it on line through your private portal on our web site.
