This simulation addressed physical design issues, rather than visual impacts, at a private property near a short viaduct at 38th Avenue. The corridor runs close to the property and a portion of an the building require removal.
Photo-simulations proved to be the best medium for accurate evaluation and for confident presentation to the stakeholder. This view over 38th Avenue and parallel to the viaduct was selected from a POITRA photographic survey.
POITRA created each photo-simulation using combined 3D rendering and traditional digital painting techniques. The challenges included removing the trees in the 38th avenue right-of-way and correctly restoring the newly exposed commercal building behind.
Poitra provided expertly-done photo simulations, and sometimesunder tight time constraints, which were instrumental in conveying project concepts to our audiences. ”

An accurate 3D site model including the proposed viaduct structure and the POITRA model RTD commuter rail vehicles was created. The past bridge design experience of POITRA principals was essential to properly representing the finished viaduct that appears in the visualization. The existing commercial building was modeled to ensure proper positioning of the viaduct in the simulation.
The models were then matched to the view perspective, appropriately lighted, rendered and composited with the photograph to create a photo-realistic simulation of the proposed conditions at this location.
The finished simulations were used in meetings with Fastracks public stakeholders, Denver City and County and on the project website, in newsletters and in the EIS document.
