Hayes Davidson


Hayes Davidson has a specialist team dedicated to analysing the potential visual impact of new city developments, and we have a highly successful track record in supporting major planning applications. Our team pioneered verified imaging by building a methodology that allows for accurate before and after imagery of the urban environment.

Our Planning team is constantly exploring new technology to aid in the journey to winning planning permission. We are now using 360º video, verified cinemagraphs, VR and AR to bring proposed schemes to life in new and innovative ways, allowing our clients and their intended audiences to see the future in action. With the recent need for consultations and committee meetings to be held digitally, we have also been working with clients to aid this process, introducing some new interactive tools.

The team has led the visual assessment of hundreds of major London development projects in both the public and private sectors, backed by our rigorous processes ensuring precision and accuracy. Combined with skills to report against complex visual issues, this has allowed the team to successfully support over 70m sq ft of projects to win planning permission to date.
