Case Study: JPW Leverages Computational Design to Deliver Australia’s Largest Sustainable Commercial Tower(Bentley Systems)

Project Summary

Organization:  Johnson Pilton Walker

Solution: Buildings and Campuses

Location: Sydney, New South Wales, Australia

Project Objectives:

  • 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.

Project Playbook:

OpenBuildings™ Designer

Fast Facts

  • 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.”
