Smithton & Culloden Flood Alleviation Animation

Working with our partners at JBA Consulting we created an animation of the Smithton & Culloden Flood Alleviation as well as 3D visualisation stills for promoting and consulting with the public and local councils.

Flood Risk

Smithton and Culloden is a suburb of Inverness and has seen substantial growth in recent times. The result of developing the rural landscape, combined with new urban pressures has led to amplified flood risk and the occurrence of flooding in the local community.


The use of BIM (Building Information Modeling) helped to manage the design process and communicate effectively with JBA. To help design cooperation, we developed the scheme in a 3D BIM environment. This allowed fly-through visualisations and photo realistic illustrations of the scheme, this helped early public engagement and provided a more accessible means of understanding the proposed designs and influences.
