Avi Urban - "The Block"
1:150 scale architectural model, Calgary, Canada
Avi Urban a division of Homes by Avi came to us to build a 1:150 scale model of their new condo development “The Block” in Calgary, Alberta. Once we received the files from AV Architecture Ltd, our talented team of model makers set about breaking the files apart and then sent those files through to our laser machine to cut all the individual pieces in acrylic. Once the pieces came off the laser machine our team began the construction stage of putting the jigsaw piece of an architectural scale model together. This process takes many hours and requires a lot of patience and skill!
Once the scale architectural model has been put together it will need yet many more hours of masking off to be sprayed to Avi Urban’s colour scheme for The Block project. The base of the model is constructed using a combination of wood and acrylic and finished with flocking to represent the grassed areas and also landscaping that follows the guidelines of the actual finished development.
Once all these laser cut pieces of acrylic are cut, sprayed up and put together, the finished architectural scale model can be installed in the presentation show suite for The Block by Avi Urban and released to the general public for viewing of the proposed development .
