Designed to make your work easier.
1. Explore potential sites
Vellum puts all the information you need at your fingertips. Start by choosing a plot you are interested in. Once selected, you have an overview of all relevant planning information. Get keen insight into what you can and cannot do within the planning limits.
Manage your risk
Vellum gives you immediate access to a multitude of sources so you know exactly what you're dealing with
Integrations with government map data
All regulation and building codes are accessible straight from the tool
Manage your permit risk by deciding whether you want to stay within or outside of planning limits. Again, these decisions can be made at any time of your feasibility assessment. Now, it is time to start exploring! Hit 'generate' to see what your numbers look like.
2. Generate Massing Concepts
Hundreds of building options
Once you hit 'generate', see your building concept come to life:
Generate flats, parking garages, office buildings and many more with just a few clicks
Rapidly test different iterations, using different parameters like unit mix, unit sizes and BVO-GBO ratios
Assess generated concepts
See how your massing changes with each input, with all data updated in real time:
Immediate insights into total BVO, BVO-GBO ratios, unit mix, unit sizes etc.
Real-time link into revenue, costs and profitability
Test out as many options as you like, and save your preferred ones for comparison later.
Business case insight
Vellum combines generative design with building regulations, leading to real time insight of your business case.
All generated designs are linked to cost benefit calculations in a format that you are familiar with
Use standardised cost items or specify your own for eg. building costs, advisor costs and expected profitability.
Suddenly had an idea for a different parameter? Go back to generating new options based on your new insights. The whole process allows you seamless transitions between generating concepts to analysing returns, all on a single platform.
See how your building behaves on the site, with simulations of shadows, daylight and proximity to neighbouring buildings.
