Architectural Model Making

We specialise in architectural model making. This means we can make a wide range of custom models to a variety of specifications. These range from simple block or massing models, right through to highly detailed presentation models.

So, for masterplans, competitions, marketing and landscaping or long-term public displays, you’ll be in good hands. This is because our experienced team is on hand to help and advise at every step of the design and production process. So, from brief to delivery, and using the best blend of technology and traditional skills, your model will be custom built to fit your purpose.

Complimentary skills like 3D scanning, 3D printing, laser cutting/etching and a wide range of painting/finishing techniques are also on offer. We also make custom-built plinths and display cases. As a result, your model will be protected and displayed at its best.

Maintenance services, storage and transport (including bespoke travel cases) are also available.
