Business Profile

The company was originally founded in 2004 to provide high-quality Computer-Generated Imagery (CGI Visuals) to the property sector.

CGI visualisation is an essential tool for architects, Interior designers, planners and property developers. They are used extensively to communicate design concepts and to accelerate off-plan sales. They are being seen as increasingly important in the planning process in the form of verified visuals that combine CGI and photography.

CGI visualisation involves using specialist software to create 3D images of buildings and interiors. The buildings in question may already be constructed, but more often than not they are still in the design stage.

CGI Visualisation is also used in product showcasing and to communicate operating procedures, traffic flow, infrastructure layout and much more.

Over time the business has become one of the most respected UK providers of CGI Visuals not just to the property sector but to a diverse range of clients in the areas described above.

The business is well structured with an excellent and consistent trading history and repeat client base showing continuous profit. The owners have been running the company from their premises based in North Essex, but their client base covers many parts of the UK. There are 9 members of staff employed across the business.
