High performance computers at Edinburgh University have been used to provide a 'bureau' service to help in a modelling project for the Edinburgh Old Town Renewal Trust.

Edinburgh Parallel Computing Centre - a technology transfer centre at the university - worked with architect Turnbull Jeffrey Partnership and the Trust on the Visage project.

As the centre points out, small and medium sized firms that would like to use powerful technology find it uneconomical to provide dedicated equipment that will be needed only occasionally. The Visage project's data transfer to EPCC allowed the images to be made more lifelike.
