WHO WE’VE DONE IT FOR
Our clients over the years have come from a wide range of sectors, including residential, hospitality, commercial, leisure, MOD, industrial, retail and transport. Outside of construction and property, we have worked on 3D models for phone and new technology concepts. More recently, we’ve been bringing our skills into products, CGIs and configurators for the KBB (kitchens, bedrooms and bathrooms) sector.
It’s testament to our expertise, creativity and client-focused approach that some of our clients from the early days of Virtual Resolution are still working with us today.

What our Clients say
“Tim and VR are exactly the type of company we wish to partner with. great service and outstanding results. I can't recommend VR enough. ”
Patrick Ames, Director, Claremont
“The involvement of Virtual Resolution at the concept stage of the project was extremely valuable. Tim and team quickly transformed the design concept for our project into a 3D rendered fly through model which really helped in terms of enabling key stakeholders to visualise how the final scheme would look and function. Moving on from that stage, the model has also been a key tool utilised in terms of external promotional activity and also in relation to selling space to potential tenants. Virtual Resolution provided a high-quality product in quite an aggressive timescale whilst being fully responsive to client requests for changes. ”
