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.
