We believe the future of BIM is Optimization. Rather than manually modelling, we can feed the computer a series of rules, requirements and parameters. The computer can then return a list of options that meet that criteria based on the required parameters, which can range from the optimization of costs versus benefits, to a building’s optimal footprint, structural load capacity, and thermal performance.
All this seems a lot like, and it certainly is, but parametric design and adaptive digital systems allow us to explore each option, assess every design decision, so that it perfectly suits the needs of our clients.
- Automation and optimization of design and investment processes, offering multiple options and solutions of space planning and space budget for large scale projects.
- Analyze spatial program and requirements, and accurately assess design performance in regard to space standards and regulations.
- Create a workflow to automatically model a programmatic design of a building in order to rapidly control the area of the proposal, both mathematical and graphically, by applying visual programming tools.
- Conduct energy assessments for building design, inspect building energy standard compatibility, and optimize proposed design to reduce facility lifecycle costs.
