Case studies - Glenelg Tram Overpass

  1. 1. Glenelg Tram Overpass<br />South Road, Adelaide<br />Case Study<br />Photograph of final outcome<br />
  2. 2. The following 3D images are captures from the working visual interactive (real-time) model of the Glenelg Tram Overpass Project. <br />They are representative of design and usability elements at various stages throughout the process. <br />They are intended for information purposes only regarding how UC visual models can support multiple aspects of visioning, validation, communication to support project progress.<br />Fine Print<br />

Primary<br />Community anxiety immediately resolved with interactive consultation sessions (personal and town meeting)<br /><ul><li>Proposal supported for rapid progress.</li></ul>Secondary<br />Safety and quality improved around, on and under stairwells around columns, corners. Landscaping, balcony, railings, sightlines, clearances.<br />CPTED - issues improved.<br />Usability analysis - platform, approaches and pathways.<br />Neighbours review - every door, fence, yard and window.<br />Bike path usability – experience and demonstration<br />Dynamic shadow analysis - neighbours and public spaces.<br />Lift well VIS – height impact issues quickly resolved.<br />Visuals in brochures, web, media, awards, news etc.<br />Tertiary <br />Auditing - visual evidence recorded of options.<br />Collaboration increased.<br />Verification of use of adjacent spaces and their overlooking, usage, relations, materials, signage visibility, inter-relations and multi-user functionality.<br />Materials and finishes validation/iteration<br />Wayfinding verification<br />Multimodal review - integration between tram and bus<br />Full experience of structure: all streets, near/far, underneath.<br />Experience from within rolling stock, in motion.<br />Driver experience on approach, in motion, at speed.<br />Maintenance features / access verified.<br />Project confidence increased.<br />Project Benefits<br />
  36. 36. "The Department for Transport, Energy and Infrastructure (DTEI) was keen to ensure that the local community fully understood the impact of the tram overpass project on their urban environment.<br />DTEI had presented plans and artists impressions to the community however it was not until we were able to engage Urban Circus and work with their team to develop a fully interactive model of the overpass that we gained the support of the local residents.<br />With the interactive model, residents and users were able to fully appreciate the extent of our project and its impacts on their local street. They were able to identify existing landmarks and vistas through the model and all questions and concerns were able to be addressed.<br />The Urban Circus model is a tool that allows the accurate detail of the project to be clearly presented. DTEI also used the tool to identify and explore areas within the design where improvements were required. This further contributed to the development of a final design for a project which will be both safe in operation as well as a pedestrian friendly space.<br />The team at Urban Circus were client focussed in the development of the model and provided regular updates of expenditure against budget. The project team would be pleased to engage Urban Circus for future projects where a high level of community understanding is required."<br />Paul Gelston, Project Director, Glenelg Tram Overpass ProjectDepartment for Transport, Energy and Infrastructure, South Australia<br />Testimonial<br />
