Virtual Planit was born in January 2000 creating some groundbreaking digital work for Deansgate Locks in Manchester, a brand new leisure/bar focus for the city centre. And we were lucky enough to work on visualizing Leeds Railway Station – now England’s largest outside London.
Other large scale digital projects followed soon after, an orientation model of The Science and Industry Museum in Manchester, The New Anfield Stadium and Stanley Park in Liverpool, the Inacity/Piccadilly Tower planning application, The Outlet Mall and it’s residential towers at the Lowry in Salford Quays, and the massive masterplanning visualisation of Liverpool 1.
Over the years we have built up many digital models of UK towns and cities, and many other terrain maps around the UK. VP spreads it’s wings these days as far as Brazil and the Middle East, and we are working on high profile national and international developments.
We have been involved in major works for hospitals, schools and colleges, police stations, and large scale public housing. We even produced animations for Lucas Arts Star Wars. And in 2002 we were delighted to have created the FIFA Corporate Hospitality Online Ticket Sales website, for the World Cup in Japan and Korea. Though times have changed since then, we still produce great sites that these days lean towards social networking, content management, and interactive 3D.
VP entered a new development phase in 2010, with work in prototyping online medical research. This has resulted in the creation of the world’s largest collection of interactive medical specimens, for which we have created an iPhone and iPad applications. Our team are currently working with a major international museum, and are developing close relationships with News International amongst others.
We continue to work in architecture, city models, schools, academies, international resorts, and we are developing interactive environments for iOS and other handheld devices.
