Park Service Topography Model

This extremely high detailed topography model of Boulder County Colorado was completed for the Park Service. The model was created as part of a traveling exhibit to show the natural conditions of this beautiful county. This model is about the landforms and water features so it does not show towns, roads or highways.

Every nuance of the topography is visible in this detailed model. Erosion patterns, riparian areas, meadows, and mountains are easily identifiable because of the accuracy of the topography. This scale model was cut at 1″ = 4225′ and is almost 4′ long. The model is mounted to a display van that exhibits many other educational features of the area. The kids get to touch the topography of the county which is a very meaningful educational experience.

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.

Community Model Showing Brochure Graphics

Our architectural model website shows many models of communities. This one is different because instead of showing properties and homes, we were asked to match the graphics on the developers brochure and essentially recreate that brochure as a three dimensional model.

Using their color schemes and graphic elements we created this large display model to highlight the location and price points of the properties along with graphics for each of the points of interest.
