POITRA made a site visit to collect the base photograph for this view of the Washington Street Corridor after all of the existing photographs proved to dark.
Awesome Work! They are being pulled into the document right now, so perfect timing. Thank you!”

This allowed POITRA photographers to determine and capture the scene at the optimal sun angle for the simulation and to wait for a wonderfully clear Colorado day.
We also took care to capture automobiles in the right locations to help the viewer understand the scale of the design within the narrow right-of-way without hiding streetscape amenities.
POITRA modelers created a 3D site model that included POITRA stock bus shelters and curbs, tree grates and plantings. The model was matched to the base photograph, lighted and rendered and then composited to create the image. Traditional digital painting techniques were then used to finalize the simulation.
Small details were used to personalize the concept for local stakeholders. Notice the Globeville Street Fair poster in the advertising panels on one of the bus shelters.
POITRA street design experience made plan reading trouble free and helped to imagine in the minor details typically undetermined during the concept development phase. This is extremely important in creating an accurate and therefore believable simulation.
The finished visual simulation was used in the proposal documents.
