Dynamic Design and Feasibility Workflow
Complex projects—those with intricate geometries, specialty materials, and aggressive timelines—leave little room for errors or design missteps. Hitting the mark the first time, or as early as possible in the design process, is the key to overall productivity, profitability and success. Navigating the design space of a project is a non-trivial task (Figure 1) – without fabricator input architects cannot calibrate design decisions for cost and quality.
In response to this challenge, we collaborated with Perkins&Will to build a digital workflow to improve the entire design and delivery process for everyone involved including architects, designers, contractors, and owners. The result is an innovative combination of technology, tools and services deemed Dynamic Design and Feasibility Workflow.
With Dynamic Design and Feasibility Workflow, designers have more time to explore, experiment, and iterate with confidence, knowing that their technical fabrication partner can quickly validate or counsel caution when needed. For Clients, this means they receive more thoughtful designs with the added assurances of estimating accuracy and constructability.
