Design Computation Adds Efficiency and Enhances Flexibility for Future Science Buildings

In “Computational Biology Poses New Design Challenges for Research Facilities,” published by Tradeline, Andy Snyder explains how NBBJ uses design computation to expedite the design process, deliver optimal results that are flexible to adapt to future changes, and save time and money.

The software tools that NBBJ develops can generate thousands of iterations based on criteria for next-generation translational research buildings, Andy says. Whereas space planning for science once took weeks, now solutions can be produced within hours.
