Net Zero Structures

Generative Structural Design for Rapid Cost and Embodied Carbon Evaluation 

Read the whitepaper

The time-intensive nature of structural design creates a significant bottleneck; In early design stages, low budgets and sharp deadlines mean engineers will likely stick to tried-and-tested, but environmentally harmful, options like steel and concrete. To speed-up adoption of more sustainable structural materials, like mass timber, early-stage structural design must be re-imagined.

Read the white paper to see how the team at DBF is collaborating with Karamba3D to address this need.

We always aim to go for timber but our clients always ask how much will it cost? ”

To speed up the decarbonization of the building industry, we need tools like DBF to give dynamic and visual feedback on embodied carbon emissions particularly at the early design phase.”
