- To design an iconic sustainable tower structure as part of urban revitalization and redevelopment of Western Sydney.
- To leverage digital twins to streamline collaboration and coordinate design workflows.
- JPW implemented computational design to deliver an iconic, sustainable centerpiece tower for the Parramatta Square urban renewal initiative.
- The GenerativeComponents feature in OpenBuildings Designer helped JPW leverage Excel data to develop scripts and perform parametric modeling to accommodate the expedited timeline.
- Working in a connected data environment facilitated collaborative design by generating a digital twin.
- Bentley’s computational design application reduced modeling time for the façade panels from two weeks to less than one hour.
- The interoperability of OpenBuildings Designer with Excel automated design processes to save significant time, resources, and costs.
- Extracting data and documentation directly from the digital twin resulted in more accurate deliverables.
“Computational design [using OpenBuildings Designer’s GenerativeComponents] has allowed our team to focus on resolving problems and finding better design solutions.”
