We continuously assess and advance our workflows to sharpen our know-how and tools. It helps us serve as a synergetic link between emerging technologies from various fields and the diverse expertise of our specialised teams.
We strive to blend knowledge and technology with an open creative approach to develop inventive solutions that help us overcome engineering and design challenges.
To keep up with the rapidly evolving engineering landscape, integrating efficient digital workflows allows for a greater focus on the creative aspects of our work. As such, we are constantly developing a unified platform that facilitates seamless collaboration among various workflows and tools. By learning from the past, we can continually improve our processes toward a more holistic, digitally-assisted approach that maximises productivity while facilitating creative design innovations.
A customised optimisation process can significantly enhance the efficiency of a structural system by fine-tuning specific parameters or features of a given design. For instance, optimising project parameters can minimise material usage, reduce environmental impact, and lower construction costs.
By leveraging state-of-the-art optimisation tools, we can automate various calculation tasks, rapidly evaluate designs, and assess multiple performance criteria, enabling informed decision-making throughout the design process.
Mastering the complexities of advanced geometry has become essential expertise in contemporary architecture and engineering. A skilful approach toward complex geometries enables us to utilise cutting-edge software and techniques, push the boundaries of what is possible, and create structures previously unattainable with traditional design methods.
There are different methods available to find the ideal structural form. For instance, the Dynamic Relaxation process enables structures to reach their equilibrium shape under different external loads, constraints, and internal forces. This technique can result in highly efficient and lightweight structures that perform optimally.
Solving spatial dependencies and geometric interactions through manual drafting can be a complex, challenging task. Rather than constructing solutions analytically, constraint-based Dynamic Relaxation offers an effective alternative for finding correct geometry. Although the resulting solution is only an approximation, it falls within perceptible tolerances, executes quickly, and can be easily reproduced in case of any changes.
Topology Optimisation is a powerful design technique that optimises material distribution within a predefined design domain. Using input geometry, support areas, and load sets, a mathematical algorithm iteratively optimises toward a condensed and efficient structural material layout. This technique can create complex, organic shapes within a design space by managing incremental geometry allocation.
In today's diverse software ecosystems, project teams often work in multiple environments, requiring clear communication and efficient model data exchange. To facilitate this, we work with customised workflows that seamlessly connect procedures across various software platforms, enabling smooth collaboration between our internal teams and external project.
Integrating new structures into existing buildings requires tailor-made solutions, often resulting in a geometric puzzle between old and new. We use 3D point cloud scans of existing structures to assess present conditions precisely. This enables us to plan and coordinate interventions with much higher accuracy.
