At Smith and Wallwork we have been trialing new ways of communicating and testing our designs at the early stages of projects.

‘New ways’ means using software instead of our trusty pens and pencils – first up is SketchUp. We have sketched our CLT bridge, Scottish timber tower and two recent competition entries, the results of our trials can be seen below.

Next we hope to trial a sketching App on the iPad, mimicking more our hand drawn sketches. Let us know what you think, at the moment the jury is favouring our hand sketches!
