Intelligent Community Design

3D Sustainable Urban Design and Early Stage Masterplanning

Undertake sustainable masterplanning from the earliest project stages, even when data is sparse or non-existent.

Go beyond just zoning and massing and integrate analysis across a wide range of sustainable metrics. iCD, a plug-in to SketchUp, undertakes energy analysis using the proven VE simulation engine, so you can be assured of robust and reliable results.

Integrated Analysis Options

Quickly analyse multiple sustainability metrics directly within one central tool. Plan and visualise the impact of changes over time. 

Geography / Topography
Massing & Form
Energy Analysis
Water Analysis
Solar Potential
Renewables Feasibility
Integration with Utilities
Zero-Carbon Plans
Active Travel
Electric Vehicles
