Model of 911 Mobile Response

Not every transportation model is about highway redesigns. This is the Thor truck, an emergency 911 vehicle model.

The problem with natural disasters is that they tend to take down the very services that were put in place to protect us. This mobile emergency services truck can be deployed to a disaster site to keep the 911 emergency response functioning and at the ready. This concept is new and we were asked to build this model of the truck to use in a sales meeting to demonstrate it’s abilities.  Using high-intensity LED’s to mimic the halogen lamps on the truck, we lit this model creating an intriguing effect.

Highway Interchange Model

Milwaukee Transportation and CH2MHill engineering have used us many times to construct models showing necessary changes to their highways throughout the state.

This model for the Brown County interchange was built in the horizontal scale of 1″ = 200′ with a vertical scale of 1″ = 100′ to better see the heights and highway separations.

Model of Presidio in San Francisco

The highway leading to the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco required major updates. We were tasked with building a ten-foot civil engineering model of the whole Presidio area from the Golden Gate Bridge to the Palace of Fine Arts.

Where the highway previously went over the rolling hills, there are now going to be tunnels creating unobstructed views of the bay. Every existing building was shown on this display model along with the National Cemetery, all the landscaping, the cliffs and the beaches.  This transportation model is divided into four sections each demonstrating a separate aspect of the new construction. The sections were packed into four traveling crates so that the client could bring only what was needed to the meetings.

Civil Model In Milwaukee

This civil engineering model of the Michell Interchange in Milwaukee covers a lot of areas. The funky shape is required to show just the areas affected by construction. The model sections each had to come apart and be reassembled easily. The crate nested all of the model sections into one box for ease of transportation.

Model shape and model size are all determined by the needs of the project. We helped the engineers come up with a size and shape that would work. This model was on display at the state fair.

Zoo Interchange Civil Model

This model of the interchange centering around the Milwaukee Zoo is a complex model covering a lot of areas. In order to save money and still show context, we designed the model to be part 3d construction and part aerial photographs.

All of the buildings that were directly affected by the construction were built in 3D but the outlying communities how also had a vested interest in this project were shown as 2D photos enlarged and placed on the model. The last photos show this model being exhibited on display at the county fair in Milwaukee WI. These public relations models have been highly effective in getting the word out and helping the community get behind these difficult projects.

Transportation Museum Model

Oak Street Station Museum shows the heyday of the trolly car. We built models of historic and modern trollies to populate this display model.

Overhead cantinas were shown to demonstrate the trollies efficiencies. This display model of the transportation museum was used to raise it’s profile, show the design off to investors and raise money.
