Project Name: Renderings and Visualizations for Pekanbaru BRT

February 2020 to June 2020
GIZ China office (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH), Frankfurt, Germany
Project Features
The Indobus program is part of a wider framework which under which GIZ is assisting the Government of Indonesia develop and implement NAMAs or nationally appropriate mitigation actions to reduce GHG emissions. This includes support for BRT planning in multiple Indonesian cities, including a BRT Feasibility Study in Pekanbaru, building on a pre-feasibility study produced in 2019. (Far East Mobility led the BRT planning and design component of both the pre-FS and the FS.)
Far East Mobility Role

Far East Mobility’s expert pool team in GIZ’s Indobus BRT planning project did not include our in-house rendering, visuals and communication expert. High quality visuals which also accurately display the BRT and roadway characteristics are an extremely important part of any BRT project. GIZ through the China office provided a small additional contract for Far East Mobility’s in-house rendering expert to produce a range of renderings covering the central area of Pekanbaru.

The resulting renderings, produced primarily in Sketchup and Photoshop, were used at prominent seminars and as part of the Ministry of Transport’s presentation materials at national government level meetings. In addition, two photo-realistic 3D Max renderings were produced working with a local rendering company.
