Our Images on the BEEB

There is nothing more satisfying than seeing our images go global...or national at least!

The BBC have released a news article on their website documenting the current regeneration work that is transforming the old, run down areas of Swansea High Street into a vibrant 'creative cluster' where people can work and live in a harmonious environment.

The developers of the scheme, Coastal Housing, Commissioned iCreate to visualise the whole project, and the images - some of which can be seen on the link below, are some of the most pleasing we have created. Not only because of the way they look, but because of the use they have been put to.

A Boost for Housebuilders!

The Home Builders Federation (HBF) has declared this week’s stamp duty announcement to be a “huge boost” to the house building industry.

First time buyers are crucial to the housing market, and raising the stamp duty threshold to £250k will enable more to save the high deposits currently being demanded by mortgage lenders.

The HBF recently identified a looming housing shortfall of approaching a million homes, and urged MPs to address the barriers to building new homes.  Part of the package of measures announced this week is a requirement for Local Authorities to identify more land for development, which is one such barrier.

According to the HBF, increasing housing delivery will benefit every area of the country and;

- Create hundreds of thousands of jobs
- Provide enough homes for our population
- Remove millions from poor quality living conditions
- Stimulate the economy.  £1 spent generates nearly £3 in economic activity

It's Official...We Made the List!

iCreate has just received some news we've been waiting for - we were successful in our bid to win a place on the Technical Consultancy Framework Agreement for the Department for the Economy and Transport (DE&T) of the Welsh Assembly Government! This means we are officially an 'approved supplier' for the Assembly's property team, for the provision of 3D Modelling and Artistic Concept consultancy, throughout north, south and mid-Wales. Having recently received our ISO 9001 and 14001 certification, we believe all the hard work (and please excuse the platitude but…) going the extra mile, has paid off! Considering all the recent work we have been doing in conjunction with developers for the public sector, we are pleased to now be recognised on the official suppliers list. This is just the first step of course and it is now important to maintain our high standards and to consistently justify our selection in our high quality visuals. We now look forward to continuing to work closely with the Welsh Assembly to bring their vision for the future of Wales, to life!

The iCreate Xmas Rhyme 2009

Just a quick note with our seasons greetings!
Time for a break from deadlines and meetings!
As we near the end of two-thousand-and-nine
It's time for another Christmas rhyme!
The blessings this year have been mixed, to be fair,
With hard times and good times in equal share.
Business is busy so we mustn't complain,
And developers seem to be building again.
But one thing we've learnt, and we'll share it with you,
Is not to forget - as we so often do -
That life is supposed to be happy and fun,
And that's what's important when all's said and done.
So best wishes to you and the ones you hold dear,
Let's hope twenty-ten is a prosperous year!
