Pedestrian & Evacuation Modelling
When designing, operating, or renovating any piece of infrastructure that has large volumes of people or complex, nontrivial routes, pedestrian and evacuation modelling allows us to visualize movement patterns under a range of scenarios to gain insight into the user experience.
Under emergency scenarios, this allows us to ensure all occupants can safely evacuate. We optimize the egress design by identifying bottlenecks or underutilized routes while also testing the sensitivity of the design if certain key doors or corridors are not accessible when required.
What Makes Pedestrian & Evacuation Modelling Different at Entuitive?
Traditionally, a pedestrian model may be developed towards the end of design to test the layout and confirm performance metrics are met. By bringing this service in-house and creating a more efficient workflow, we develop these models as early in the design process as possible so that the results can inform the design direction.
The value of this process has been demonstrated on projects where design options were modelled to compare the relative level of service, architectural impact, and cost.
