Research, Innovation and Emerging Technologies


INNOVATION TO DRIVE BUILDING PERFORMANCE

ENTUITIVE’S EMBEDDED INNOVATION PROCESS IS FUNDAMENTAL TO OUR CORE VALUES AND PROVEN TO BE SUCCESSFUL AT BRINGING GREAT IDEAS WITHIN THE FIRM TO THE SURFACE. OUR ENTIRE STAFF IS INVOLVED IN EXPLORING CONCEPTS FROM EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES TO PRODUCTS AND PROCESSES. WE CONDUCT RESEARCH TO DRIVE INNOVATION AND ENHANCE THE VALUE WE DELIVER TO OUR CLIENTS.

We`re tapping into our collective knowledge and curiosity to develop new processes and tools that enhance the design of the built environment. The results of these efforts include our evolving use of parametric modelling.  We’ve successfully applied parametric modelling to support rapid iterative exploration of complex geometries and structural optimization, custom linkages between 3D models and analysis software to drive improved optimization, and physical prototyping (3D-printing).

We`re exploring the application of virtual reality technology to the design and construction process and developing tools to help us – and our clients – better understand the environmental impacts of our designs.

We partner with recognized academic institutions and government research programs to support leading-edge innovation and to ensure our knowledge and skills allow us to focus on performance-based design solutions rather than prescriptive ones. Some of these areas we are currently developing include research into novel holistic strategies for blast design and performance-based fire engineering approaches. Our own data collection and performance monitoring of a network of buildings also informs future performance-based design approaches.

Innovation at Entuitive leverages the power of our collective curiosity, technological insight and multi-disciplinary capabilities to help shape a better built environment. This foundation and knowledge enables deep collaboration amongst our team and with our clients as we seek to be leaders in the development and adoption of next-generation performance solutions.
