Starting with a discussion about your scenery management issue, we can assess and provide design recommendations.
We are experts at employing Visual Nature Studio from 3-D Nature, LLC for photo-realistic visual simulation, KB Fairhurst has trained many VRM consultants, GIS Departments, and UBC forestry students in its applications and practice. Our 3-D computer visual simulations provide essential understanding and guidance in each of our VIAs, some of which are linked below. More than seventy VIAs and other initiatives using VNS produced by RDI for BC Timber Sales are published on the Visual Impact Assessment page of this website.
A consultation will give you the opportunity to ask questions and allow us to suggest a plan for issue resolution. We gladly work with and mentor other forestry, natural resource management and GIS firms who may wish to access our expertise for conducting the VRM, VIA, 3-D Visual Simulation, Visual Landscape Design, achievement of Visual Quality Objectives and Requirements, and integration with Forest Landscape Plans (FLPs).
RDI's focus in 2023 will expand to include Integrated Visual Design Planning and Total Resource Plans. KB Fairhurst, PhD, RPF has the IVDP experience (our projects are linked below) and professional forestry background necessary to properly meet complex project needs.
We are registered with the Association of Forest Professionals in BC, and we carry professional liability insurance for all of our Forestry projects in British Columbia. We are
SAFE Certified by the BC Forest Safety Council and have the WorkSafeBC Certificate of Recognition (COR).
Visual Impact Assessment projects outside of British Columbia may require special licenses and certifications. We will gladly collaborate with trusted members of the Visual Resource Management community in other jurisdictions as we have done in Alberta, Canada, and with the US Forest Service.
Here is a historical listing of RDI's many Integrated Visual Design Plans and a link to the Alberta CEMA Visual Landscape System produced by RDI. The FIA standards for Integrated Visual Design are linked at the bottom of the list. The 1994 MOF Visual Landscape Design Training Manual is also a great foundation for Integrated Visual Design considerations. See pp 137-165 (Appendix I). Thanks to Simon Bell, UK Forestry Commission, and all the MOF Landscape Specialists (including KBF) for this excellent work.
Check out these projects covering visual impact assessments and training initiatives presented here for historical documentation and potential guidance for new projects. See also our Integrated Visual Design Plans and VRM Systems above and our VIA page for many more linked projects.
