Visual Impact Assessment
Seeing the future
MKI recognizes the importance that the local landscape has on shaping the lifestyle, values and identity of local community. With that in mind MKI has invested heavily into the tools and talent necessary to garner support from financiers, local stakeholders, the public and regulatory agencies. MKI’s extensive Visual Impact Assessment experience includes projects that range in size from one turbine to ninety-nine.
For proponents and the public alike, seeing a photograph of a proposed wind farm can demonstrate concretely what the project will look like in its actual landscape. MKI puts client’s projects in place using photo-realistic mock-ups of wind farms, 3D animations and visualizations, and detailed mapping and reporting which show which turbines will be visible through Zone of Visual Influence (ZVI) analyses. Furthermore, understanding the extent and magnitude of impacts, such as shadow flicker, is vital in designing a wind farm and gaining acceptance from members of the public. MKI’s analyses follow global best practices and guidelines, and MKI’s reports ensure that clients and their stakeholders understand the full extent of potential landscape changes within their community.
