BRANDON, November 3rd, 2017 – The “Back to the River” Master Plan comes to life in 3D imagery in the newest promotional tool for this exciting community development project. Altus Group – Manitoba Land Surveyors and Brandon Riverbank Inc. have been working together since the Spring of 2016 on this initiative, with the result being a 6-minute video that tells the story of the development that will take place around the Riverbank Discovery Centre over the next 20 years, painting a virtual picture of this area as a premiere community gathering place and tourism destination for Brandon and southwestern Manitoba.

Altus Group – Manitoba Land Surveyors, donated all of their time and technology to this project and is excited about the data-gathering and photogrammetry skills that they could lend to telling the story of the Master Plan. Ian Baley, Brandon Branch Manager states, “The chance to showcase the Back to the River Master Plan in a unique fashion using the latest technologies has been very rewarding for us at Altus Group. We are honoured to be a part of Brandon’s history…and future”. The video will act as a valuable resource to gain friends and funds in moving the ‘Back to the River’ Master Plan forward. The inaugural project, Festival Park, is currently under construction and a fundraising campaign is well underway to support this project. Lois MacDonald, General Manager of Brandon Riverbank Inc. states “This virtual reality video will be an amazing tool for our organization and fundraising group, as we work to bring all of these exciting projects to life in the coming years. It helps us all to re-imagine the Riverbank as a very unique space that we can all enjoy and be proud of. We are so grateful to Altus Group for their partnership and support”.

Supported by HTFC Planning + Design, and funded in part by the Star Attractions Enhancement Grant Program, the video can be viewed online at www.riverbank.mb.ca. Thank you to Tyler Glen Studio for his talent and expertise in crafting the audio portion of the video. Brandon Riverbank Inc. is very grateful to Altus Group – Manitoba Land Surveyors for their enthusiasm, creativity and generosity in helping us get “Back to the River”.
