Planning and Engagement Challenges for Secure Facility
- to coordinate and integrate in a rapid iterative process the design and survey information from multiple inputs.
- to convert these inputs into an integrated 3D model so fast the project managers and executive leadership could use the model as a continuous design review tool
- increasingly support a growing range of design and costing decisions including general layout arrangements, sightlines and security arrangements across the facility to very specific accuracies, high detailed solar shading and access studies to iterate fenestration and shading designs as well as reduce costs and many other elements.
Planning and Engagement Benefits for Secure Facility
- the client group won the bid and the rights to build the facility.
- the client group saved an increasing amount of time and money in the design development process through faster and more visual iterations of integrated solutions – particularly on consultant design variations.
- the client group benefits from rapid and easier decision making using our Visual technology as a dashboard for continuous review.
- the bid and concepts could be developed further with the rapid integrated iterations.
- more stories could be told to the client’s client about how the secure facility will be operated and managed on a day-to-day basis, and about the cleverness and depth of the thinking behind the apparent simplicity of the design.
